Manx company's software to be used by US telecoms giant
Manx-based Canonical software says it’s signed a contract with an American telecoms giant to power its network using its Ubuntu Linux distro.
AT&T says it’s chosen Ubuntu for its network and cloud, in one of the biggest deals to date for Canonical – which is registered in Circular Road in Douglas.
AT&T is America’s second-largest mobile phone company – and with more than 125 million mobile customers it’s the world’s 18th-largest mobile operator.
Toby Ford, AT&T’s assistant vice president of Cloud Technology for Strategy and Planning says Canonical’s cloud and open source expertise make it a good choice for the company.
