Re: AT&T likes open source.. in a way..
It's also a way to recriut top talent. Many of the best devs like working open source so giving them that opportunity is a great way to attract them to careers at your company.

Re: An example to follow
I agree with you and the other community members who see this as both trailblazing and game-changing. I wonder how AT&T's move will up the stakes for open source developers in terms of hiring. It's part of a broader shift, perhaps, as more enterprises, government agencies, and other well-established businesses use open source need and recruit open source developers, does that change the hiring market for smaller open source devs?

Re: An example to follow
With the "ambitious goals set to virtualize 75% of its network functions by the year 2020," one would think they might well be the leader and AT&T has certainly been getting their virtualizatiion message out widely and often. The offer to share their code would seem to get folks eager to take them up on the offer as well, although that remains to be seen too as to what restrictions might be required when the offer is accepted.

AT&T does have a long history of trailblazing several cutting edge technologies. I have no doubts that other companies will follow its lead -- simply because AT&T has a track record of keeping its projects going.

Re: An example to follow
These are the kind of industry-shaking moves that could make AT&T the game-changer in virtualization of these systems. I think over time this sort of change is inevitable. Organizations will end up following AT&T's lead, which will make the company a trailblzer for this technology. That's my ten cents.

No fault. It's just business as usual.
> "Clearly, AT&T has its own reasons for wanting to line up industry support behind initiatives it considers critical..."

While it's somewhat nice to see more companies adopting open source projects and providing resources to push tech forward, it remains to be seen if these "go your own way" projects are really beneficial to the marketplace as a whole. I think it's definitely beneficial for AT&T, so it's not surprising that they're doing this and "taking a leadership role" in these efforts.

AT&T likes open source.. in a way..
AT&T also is rumored to have a Cyanogen phone to fork the Android marketplace in the works... So AT&T like open source when it's done the way AT&T wants it to be done. Sounds like Apple's version of liking open source -- OSX is based on BSD, and Apple loves to build its products on top of open source.. but all the nicer stuff on top is proprietary.

So... going its "own way" isn't so much in line with a completely open source philosophy. A lot of companies are co-opting open source to make development cheaper/faster -- for their own end goals.

An example to follow
"What makes AT&T's efforts a bit different is that the company is willing to stand alone, at least initially, and point firmly in a direction it believes the telecom industry needs to turn."

This is admirable. Following the crowd is easy. Standing alone defending what the company believes is the best for the industry is brave. I wish AT&T all the luck for succeeding.
