DALLAS — AT&T and Broadcom are working together to build a strategic program focused on driving innovation of network hardware, such as switching, routing, broadband access and customer premises equipment.

“By collaborating directly with Broadcom, AT&T is driving a roadmap that will help enable innovation,” said John Donovan, chief strategy officer and group president, Technology and Operations. “We continue to form relationships with disruptive suppliers as we build a software-centric network and drive the industry to software-defined networking (SDN).”

Working directly with companies like Broadcom offers AT&T access to guide requirements at the chipset level.

“This represents a significant milestone toward accelerating innovation in the industry,” said Hock Tan, president and CEO, Broadcom. “Both companies are committed to sustained collaboration on product and chipset roadmaps, engineering services and advanced functionality.”

This program will help enhance video and broadband delivery to AT&T customers and across its network. This represents another stake in how AT&T is creating premier entertainment and communication experiences for its customers.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
