Prabhu most recently served as president of AT&T Labs and chief technology officer, where he led the flagship network transformation project, driving a revolutionary approach to open Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) on a global scale and automating network operations and control functions. This project now serves as the primary codebase for the Linux Foundation Project ONAP (Open Network Automation Project) on which Cloudify and AT&T have collaborated and are both platinum founding members. ONAP is garnering much attention in the telecommunications industry and is a leading contender to become the reference model for many global telecoms looking to undertake Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and NFV.

In his capacity as strategic advisor to Cloudify, Prabhu will leverage more than 35 years of technological leadership in the networking industry, providing guidance on delivering the next generation of NFV and SDN innovation. In his book, “Building the Network of the Future: Getting Smarter, Faster, and More Flexible with a Software Centric Approach” (John Donovan, Krish Prabhu), he describes his passion for building networks on principles of openness and standardization to achieve evolvability, flexibility, security and scale.

“Krish brings to Cloudify decades of experience driving top-tier networking companies with a deep market understanding of the need for open, agile networks, having experienced the limitations of static networking firsthand,” say Zeev Bikowsky, CEO of Cloudify. “With his wealth of first-hand knowledge, he can contribute immensely to our efforts to architect future-proof and innovative networking solutions to face the challenges yet ahead of scale, distribution, edge and security.”
