AT&T and Linux Foundation join forces for the Akraino project


AT&T, the American telecommunications giant that left us great contributions to the world of technology from its famous Bell Labs, such as important contributions to solid state electronics, the C programming language and the Unix operating system, among many other things, now he brings joy to the open source community again with a great contribution to the Linux Foundation. This collaboration has led to a new project called Akraino.

The Linux Foundation has been enormously busy creating a joint networking project under one umbrella called LF Networking, and to get even bigger now comes the new Akraino project, whose code would initially come from AT&T, specifically about the Edge cloud infrastructure of this mythical company. A very powerful project that will now be under the tutelage of the Linux Foundation.

Edge is configured to be especially useful for implementations of the Internet of things or IoTHow productive you are now and how much attention you are getting. As well informed in the statement, the new Akraino project will bring a great effort made by AT&T. This was expressed by JIm Zemlin, Executive Director of the Linux Foundation. «Akraino Edge CLoud complements LF Networking projects like ONAP in end-to-end service automation. ». Therefore it is the missing piece ...

Recall that ONAP (Open Network Automation Project) was a project started in 2017 and whose integration comes from the network automation projects carried out by AT&T, China Mobile and ECOMP. Regarding the technical details of akraino, at the moment they are scarce, the website does not provide many details yet, so we will have to wait. But it will certainly help together with ONAP and OpenStack to develop future network-based next-generation services for future 5G IoT projects and much more.
