Software-defined, cloud-based open broadband access can help you
Broadband usage is skyrocketing globally, largely driven by huge increases in home Wi-Fi usage as well as bandwidth-intensive devices and applications. Networks are pushed to the limit with the massive growth in connections and increased data usage. Service providers must be able to scale on-demand while maintaining performance quality and delivering a seamless user experience.
There is a way to transform your network affordably and efficiently with an open and disaggregated software-defined Passive Optical Network (SDPON) solution. By replacing proprietary “black box” hardware with hardware based on open source components, service providers have the freedom to procure competitive, best-in-class hardware—introducing greater flexibility and cost savings with interoperable network elements. Adding software-driven networking capabilities will modernize your network and increase operational efficiency. Together these changes facilitate faster service rollouts for your customers and reduce your total cost of ownership. The path toward transformation is easier than you would imagine.
Radisys’ Connect Open Broadband is a carrier-grade software-defined Passive Optical Network (PON) distribution based on open standards with a microservices architecture to drive rapid innovation with web-scale economies. Our disaggregated PON solution gives service providers and network operators flexible deployment options, allowing them to transform their networks at their own pace. Scalable network growth and increased service agility with optimized CapEx and OpEx are easily attainable with Connect Open Broadband.
The Connect Open Broadband architecture features disaggregated cloud-native software components and flexible “white box” hardware for multi-vendor open ecosystems. This allows broadband service providers to leverage one solution for all their broadband access networks, reduce costs and accelerate innovation.
Connect Open Broadband capabilities include:
- Open network design enabling OLT vendor neutrality and deployment flexibility
- Open ONTs embedded with open OMCI allowing vendor neutrality
- Access network agnostic technology (GPON/XGSPON) with support for combo-PON on the same port
- Service agility with highly programmable SDN control
- Commercial grade solution built with hardened ONF’s VOLTHA open source software
- Microservices software enabling scalable network growth
- Cloud-native design
