Aricent‘s Virtualized Access Solution Enables Open OLT Platforms

SANTA CLARA, CA — Aricent, a global design and engineering company, announced the support of the Aricent SDvAS Virtual OLT framework (SDN-enabled virtualized Access Solution for Virtual OLT) on Broadcom’s leading PON OLT silicon based platforms. Aricent SDvAS enables equipment vendors to offer the agility and cost benefits of SDN and NFV, with support for disaggregated architectures using industry standard Original Device Manufacturer (ODM) platforms such as Edgecore Open OLT platforms and OEM platforms based on Broadcom PON OLT, Broadcom StrataDNX and StrataXGS Switch Silicon devices.

Aricent SDvAS Virtual OLT software framework supports disaggregated OLT architectures based on the ONF R-CORD model. Leveraging the ONF R-CORD VOLTHA framework and OpenOLT drivers, Aricent SDvAS enables flexible OLT deployments as an SDN controller application, as a VNF on x86 compute node, or as a local control plane on the OLT platform. With support for the Broadcom PON OLT MAC family and StrataDNX switch family, Aricent SDvAS framework on the Edgecore ASXvOLT16 Open OLT platform and the ASGvOLT32 and ASGvOLT64 GPON OLT platforms enables XGS-PON and GPON OLT deployments.

Aricent’s SDvAS is built on the Aricent ISS control plane that has enabled NEPs to build DSLAMs, OLTs, Carrier Ethernet Aggregation, Service Edge, Mobile Backhaul and Packet Optical Transport equipment. Available with flexible source code based licensing models, Aricent SDvAS portfolio of software frameworks enables support for SD-WAN Universal CPEs (uCPE), Virtualized OLTs (vOLT), Aricent Fast Path Accelerator (FPA) based Virtual Router (vRouter), Virtual CPE (vCPE), Virtualized BNGs (vBNG), and the SDN applications for network service provisioning and assurance. SDvAS enables flexible and scalable deployment options with support for industry standard ODM platforms, VNFs deployable as VMs and Containers on x86 compute nodes with hardware acceleration offload support, and VNF life cycle management and orchestration by Aricent MANO.
