Broadband service providers’ networks are under increasing strain as they seek to keep up with demand from a growing number of residential and enterprise subscribers and support new use cases such as triple-play (phone, TV, internet), TV-to-TV calling, and more. Open software-centric technologies are the answer to alleviate this strain; they enable broadband service providers to break vendor lock-in, reduce costs, accelerate innovation, and scale their networks with ease.
Software-defined Passive Optical Network, SD-PON, is a new technology targeted at passive optical networks that are used to service multiple enterprises or home. SD-PON solutions virtualizes network functions that originally resided on proprietary legacy OLT (Optical Line Terminal) “black boxes” and moves them to open and disaggregated “white box” solutions from a multi-vendor ecosystem.
It has long been the case that open source was used by ISPs and their vendors but sharing back was difficult since there was little use for others to adopt the ISP features. However, we are in the middle of a paradigm shift. ISPs and vendors are coming together to form their own open source community to collaborate and share for mutual benefit. A prominent example is prplMesh, an open source implementation of the WiFi Alliance’s EasyMesh™ specification. Jointly developed by more than 5 different companies, prplMesh will be the key project to bring EasyMesh to all devices, no matter if they run RDK, OpenWrt or any other embedded linux stack. Once deployed, prplMesh can be controlled via simple APIs and is therefore the perfect basis for differentiation via algorithms and cloud controllers.
- This talk will describe the Super-PON technology and how it can help building optical infrastructures for ubiquitous broadband access, and will summarize the on-going industry efforts to make it widely available.
