Job Overview

AT&T’s optical platforms team is responsible for the planning, design, technology roadmap, and technology introduction of optical transport to meet AT&T business needs. The role of the optical layer is to provide cost-effective high-speed transport in AT&T’s long-haul and metro networks for the packet layer and large enterprise customers wanting dedicated services. AT&T’s optical platforms team develops the state-of-the-art flexible optical layer that can support 400G today, and higher speeds (e.g. 800G) as they become viable, managed via a centralized software-defined-networking (SDN) controller.  In addition, the team maintains the lead role in the industry consortium known as Open ROADM (Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplier), with the goal of creating an open disaggregated interoperable optical layer and common APIs from each component to the SDN controller.  Open ROADM allows AT&T to use multiple vendors’ technologies for the transport equipment (transponders, ROADMs, and pluggable optics), creating competition and significant commoditization of the optical network.

  • Collaborating with a cross-organizational team and suppliers to define and develop feature requirements for AT&T’s next-generation flexible, SDN-controlled optical transport networks and working with Layer-2 and Layer-3 partners to support their current and future Services over the Layer-1 ROADM networks.

Required Education:

Bachelor’s degree or higher degree in Engineering, Computer Science, Informational Technology, Data Communications from an accredited university.  PhD in an approved field with no experience or Masters in an approved field with a minimum of 1 years of relevant experience or a Bachelors in an approved field with a minimum of 4 years of relevant experience.
