Cautionary Language Concerning “Forward-Looking”
Statements
This presentation contains 'forward-looking statements' which are based on management's
beliefs as well as on a number of assumptions concerning future events made by and information

impact of increasing competition, continued capacity oversupply, regulatory uncertainty and the
effects of technological substitution, among other risks. For a more detailed description of the
factors that could cause such a difference, please see AT&T's 10-K, 10-Q, 8-K and other filings
with the Securities and Exchange Commission. AT&T disclaims any intention or obligation to

• From “The Big Switch Rewiring the World, From Edison to Google”
by Nicholas Carr
– In 1850s innovative industrialists (e.g. Henry Burden) had their own
private power generators
– By early 1900s, electricity became a utility service provided by a few
companies to major companies and then the masses
– We are at this same juncture in early 2000s

Is The Industry Moving Towards A Broadband Utility Model?
87% of respondents agreed that the industry is moving towards a broadband utility model, and
only 2% disagreed.
Question: Do you agree with the following statement? At a macro level, carrier Ethernet standards and
technologies are moving in the direction of enabling a broadband utility model in which (a) Ethernet serves as
the unifying layer to virtualize access to the network, (b) high-capacity Ethernet and wavelength services
function as transmission lines, and (c) large data centers play the role of power generation plants in the
network. In this model, utility computing and storage capability are connected by low-latency Ethernet and
wavelength services and are delivered to a customer – with an on-demand option – through a single Ethernet
user network interface that can handle many applications with SLA guarantees.
87% agree

What is SDN?
• Software-defined networking (SDN)
– Enables network applications to request and manipulate services
provided by the network and allow the network to expose network state
back to the applications
• e.g.
