AT&T will Operate its Mobility Network on Microsoft's Azure for Operators cloud, Enabling it to Offer Cost-Effective 5G Services at Scale

AT&T Communications | July 05, 2021

AT&T plans to move its 5G mobile network to the Microsoft cloud. This strategic partnership paves the way for all of AT&T's mobile network traffic to be handled using Microsoft Azure technologies. AT&T's 5G core, the software at the heart of the 5G network that links mobile users and IoT devices to the internet and other services, will be the first to be used. By moving existing and future network workloads to Azure for Operators, AT&T will be able to improve productivity and cost efficiency while concentrating on delivering large-scale network services that meet the changing requirements of its customers. In exchange, Microsoft will get access to AT&T's intellectual property and technical expertise to expand its flagship telecom product, Azure for Operators. Microsoft is acquiring AT&T's carrier-grade Network Cloud platform technology, which is the foundation of AT&T's 5G core network. Since the company's 5G debut in 2018, AT&T's Network Cloud platform has been operating AT&T's 5G core at scale. This move delivers real-world production 5G workloads for operators to Azure. In addition, Microsoft will make job offers to the Network Cloud platform engineering team. The decision is consistent with Microsoft's commitment to ongoing, customer-driven innovation. Azure for Operators will assist operators worldwide in providing highly dependable, cost-effective, and secure 5G services to consumer and enterprise customers. AT&T will keep operating its network and preserving its customer relationships. AT&T may significantly decrease engineering and development expenses by using Microsoft's hybrid and hyperscale infrastructure. Early access to Microsoft's cloud, AI, and edge technology will provide AT&T the freedom it needs to develop and deploy new 5G-enabled services and customer experiences quickly. As AT&T design, development, and engineering professionals join its ranks, Microsoft will be able to use its experience to extend the technical skills acquired through the 2020 purchases of Affirmed Networks and Metaswitch Networks, allowing operators to operate a secure telecom network in the cloud. Furthermore, Microsoft will purchase AT&T engineering and lifecycle management software, which will be used to build and deploy a carrier-grade cloud that will operate containerized or virtualized network services. Microsoft will make the platform available to other carriers through Azure for Operators. It will invest in an ecosystem to facilitate a simpler and quicker transfer of network workloads to the cloud. Microsoft will take over responsibility for AT&T's Network Cloud's software development and deployment immediately and will migrate AT&T's current network cloud to Azure over the next three years. The companies do not disclose financial terms. The increasing demand for highly dependable mobile services at competitive prices necessitates operators rethinking their service models, established name, and unlocking industry-specific 5G opportunities ranging from connected factories and digital retail to autonomous transportation and entertainment-from-anywhere. According to the GSMA, operators are projected to spend $900 billion on mobile capital expenditures (CapEx) between 2021 and 2025. Approximately 80% of it goes toward 5G, most of which may be operated on cloud infrastructure. Moving to the cloud allows operators to save money on hardware and development, access cloud-enabled automation and data analytics, and manage real-time responses and peak traffic on demand. In addition, cloud-based AI and IoT can help to accelerate the delivery of new services. About AT&T Communications Every day, we assist family, friends, and neighbors connect in important ways. We at ATT innovate to enhance lives, from the first phone call 140 years ago to mobile video streaming today. About Microsoft Microsoft enables digital transformation for the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge era. Its goal is to enable every individual and organization on the planet to achieve more.

SolarWinds Updates APM for Enhanced Visibility into the IT Infrastructure

SolarWinds | June 20, 2020

AppOptics service map within SolarWinds APM Suite now enables DevOps teams to visualize dynamic relationships between services and their dependencies. The goal is to make it easier to conduct root cause analysis at a time when the dependencies between software and infrastructure have never been greater or complex. In many cases, IT teams today are relying on separate tools to monitor applications and IT infrastructure. Jim Hansen, vice president of products for application management at SolarWinds, said the AppOptics service map within SolarWinds APM Suite now enables DevOps teams to visualize dynamic relationships between services and their dependencies. IT teams can view metrics such as average latency, requests per minute, error rate and CPU usage as time series data within a service trace topology. The goal is to make it easier to conduct root cause analysis at a time when the dependencies between software and infrastructure have never been greater or complex. DevOps teams can view which services and dependencies are causing resource constraints, surface unknown dependencies and misconfigurations in services and determine how business transactions are flowing across application services, said Hansen. Hansen noted that in the wake of the economic downturn brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic there is a lot more interest in reducing the total cost of IT.

At the same time, responsibilities within IT teams are converging. According to a recent survey of 227 IT professionals in North America conducted by SolarWinds, 54% of respondents said they are spending more time managing applications and services than infrastructure and hardware. The survey also notes there are more IT teams than ever using log analytics (58%) and tracing (24%). SolarWinds has also added a web transaction recorder to its Pingdom monitoring tool to capture how an end user interacts with a web application without requiring developers to write and deploy scripts. The recorder captures each step made during a transaction and automatically translates the information into a script that can automatically play back, said Hansen. The challenge is making it possible for IT teams to apply APM services more broadly even when consumption of those services scales up and down in ways that are not always predictable, noted Hansen. Finally SolarWinds has enhanced its Loggly tool, adding the ability to automate indexing and parsing to deliver time to value faster, he said. Hansen said SolarWinds via its software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, is trying to make APM simultaneously more affordable and accessible. The challenge is making it possible for IT teams to apply APM services more broadly even when consumption of those services scales up and down in ways that are not always predictable, noted Hansen. There are no shortages of options when it comes to APM platforms these days, and most are accessed via SaaS platforms. SolarWinds has been making the case for an APM service that costs substantially less than rivals while providing most of the functionality required by the average IT team. Many teams have limited their adoption of APM platforms to only their most mission-critical because of the cost involved. As APM services become more affordable, there should be a corresponding increase in reliance on APM services at a time when IT is becoming more complex to manage daily.
