Re: AT&T SDN Platforms
@Joe, great interview.  Interesting perspective in AT&T becoming a software services company - this focus should serve them well.

I am wondering if they have factored in a specific platform or architecture to accommodate IoT and the growing networks associated with it?

That pesky security thing
I really like Hubbard's idea that having a single well-defended interface instead of a plethora of differently defended devices is more secure, but I don't think the theoretical or empirical basis of support is there yet. The logic of locking all the doors with one kind of very good lock keyed to an immense number of specific keys is hard to resist, but it's also hard to avoid wondering how many people will be using birthdays, pet's names, GO + College Team, etc, so that the whole thing might be only as secure as corporate passwords. 

On the other hand, by nature if the front door is locked with a combination lock and the room door with a key, the burglar is going to need more tools and spend more time.

Yet on the prehensile tail, one of the common ways of breaking hard ciphers is to be aware of what the content is likely to be: submarines talk about longitude and latitude, banks talk about interest rates and money, etc. The equivalent may make devices more breakable ...

And on the gripping jaw, even if passwords are high-quality and well-protected, if they're all being used by the same interface, there's now a very large sample of interactions all fitting the same paradigm, which is just what a cryptanalyst hopes for.

Verdict:

Magic 8 Ball

SDN platforms
I thought this interview was great. The discussion was awsome. I totally agree with the security. The real question is "is sercurity the most important thing?" I believe sercurity is the most important thing that anyone can ask for. Security is most important for a couple reason 1. People will allways feel protected. 2. They will feel very safe. 3. They will know that all of there services and products are always safe. That is why i think sercurity is the safest thing anyone can have.

Re: AT&T SDN Platforms
I'm so excited about where AT&T is going and what new things they are coming up with in the future. I've always been a Verizon person, but I think AT&T have something special going on.

Re: AT&T SDN Platforms
@dir5288, they truly do.  They appear to have the vision and the capability to execute their strategies against that vision.  I think they will take the lead on multiple fronts.
