Page 0 of 3 RADISYS SOLUTION BRIEF | Radisys SD-PON (Software-defined Passive Optical Network) Framework The telecom industry is at a pivotal time as bandwidth demands driven by the 4th Industrial Revolution impact how service providers are building their next-generation networks. Traditional networks are extremely expensive, and they are not sustainable or scalable in a new era of connectivity that includes adding 50 billion devices to the network. Broadband service providers are feeling this strain on their networks. They are gaining a significant increase in subscribers—both residential and enterprise—and must be able to support new use cases and services such as quad-play (landline, mobile phone, TV, internet), TV-to-TV calling, and more. In order to keep up with subscriber demand and connect billions of new devices, broadband service providers must transform their traditional networks with open software-centric technologies. Software-defined Passive Optical Network—or SD-PON—is a new architecture targeted at passive optical networks that are used to service multiple enterprises or home. SD-PON solutions virtualize network functions that originally resided on proprietary legacy OLT (Optical Line Terminal) "black boxes" and moves them to open and disaggregated "white box" solutions with SDN control from a multi-vendor ecosystem. By leveraging open components in their network transformations, broadband service providers can break vendor lock-in, reduce costs and accelerate innovation.
