The telecom industry is undergoing a massive transformation as service providers across the board seek to transition their networks from proprietary closed box solutions to more open SDN and NFVI-based architectures. The goal of these network transformations is to reap the benefits associated with economies of scale, reduced CapEx and OpEx, as well as gain the agilities of service introduction. As part of this effort, broadband service providers are turning to new software-centric technologies to redefine their network architectures and achieve these benefits. SD-PON solutions fit the bill, enabling broadband service providers to transition their legacy OLTs (optical line terminals) to white box hardware with SDN control.
