Double Threat Guys - - AT&T - - The Power of &
Congrats to AT&T for picking up these two Leading Lights awards. Combined with SDN, NFV is the wave of the future, putting more control in the hands of network administrators who work hard to keep their networks agile and efficient. Hats off to the company that invested $200B in its infrastructure over the past 5 years to stand shoulders above the competition. Tom Zinn  https://www.linkedin.com/in/tom-zinn-472a248/
