The suite of software frameworks will help customers achieve the benefits of virtualization while accelerating the path to open networking, an operator-led initiative supporting interoperability and cost-efficient service delivery.
Altran SDvAS boasts enhanced open networking frameworks with robust quality assurance and full-service support. One element, the SDvAS Virtual OLT (vOLT) framework, provides a rich set of features built on the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) VOLTHA, the Broadband Forum (BBF) Open Broadband Access (OB-BAA) with standardized NETCONF/YANG models, and the Altran Intelligent Switch Solution (ISS) control plane.
Altran’s SDvAS access management solution (SAMS) enables SDN-based management and control of the SDvAS Virtual OLT and other third-party Virtual OLTs using the OB-BAA framework. By using SAMS customers can gain a migration path from traditional OLTs to virtualized systems, resulting in valuable cost savings.
“Most customers have not been able to fully benefit from virtualization yet. Thanks to this collaboration with Edgecore, we can now offer a comprehensive system integration and support model that eases the adoption of open networking while reducing operating expenses,” said Brian Bronson, President of Platforms and Solutions at Altran.
