BARCELONA — MWC19 — Just having peanut butter won’t give you a peanut butter sandwich. But you can’t have a peanut butter sandwich without peanut butter.
Similarly, software-defined networking won’t transform your business, but you won’t transform your business without software-defined networking, says Sorabh Saxena, president of business operations for AT&T Business Solutions.
All of this is very metaphysical, but it’s a rule that AT&T Business Solutions lives by. Simply upgrading the network won’t give enterprises a new business model. But enterprises can’t implement a new business model without a modern, software-defined, data-powered network to support it. And that’s where AT&T Business Solutions comes in — it helps enterprise customers virtualize their networks, using the skills and lessons AT&T learned over five years virtualizing its own network, Saxena says.
