This week’s edition of Trending Network News is mostly about the cloud. First up: AT&T. The U.S. carrier announced partnerships with Amazon and VeloCloud, both ostensibly intended to help boost cloud connectivity and software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) uptake among enterprises. Meanwhile, Verizon is trying to sell of a lot of its data center assets, and Telefónica partnered with Huawei to expand its public cloud initiative in Latin America. Also: SK Telecom teams up with Qualcomm on a combined licensed and unlicensed spectrum access demo in Korea, and debate continues about the ramifications of splitting up BT into retail and wholesale arms.
