AT&T open sourced the heart of their network

Last year at the Open Networking Summit, AT&T announced (and released a white paper on) its Enhanced Control, Orchestration, Management & Policy (ECOMP). At that time, John Donovan, chief strategy officer and group president, technology and operations at AT&T, said that if there was enough interest by the networking community, they may open source the project. Fast forward a year and ECOMP has been open sourced and is now a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project.
