BURLINGTON, Mass. – Benu Networks is leading open broadband network gateway development for the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) Open Optical & Packet Transport (OOPT) Project Group, which is set to revolutionize the networking industry as we know it. The TIP OOPT Project Group was born out of the desire to break down barriers to providing better connectivity. The OOPT project group is actively defining open technologies, architectures and interfaces in Optical and IP Networking, with a unified goal to accelerate innovation in optical and IP networks and ultimately help operators provide better connectivity for communities all around the world.
Traditional broadband network gateway (BNG) deployments make up one of the most significant costs in delivering fixed broadband services. Historically, BNGs were designed as proprietary blackboxes, which required custom integration into network operator environments. Benu Networks is driving the open broadband network gateway (BNG), which decouples hardware and software, making it possible to be agile and scalable as market needs shift.
Technology has evolved to be more open and interoperable, which has allowed the widespread adoption of practices like DevOps, CI/CD, and other automation to speed up development and delivery. The open BNG project leans into the open disaggregated routers initiative, a cornerstone of the OOPT project. With an open, disaggregated BNG, operators will be able to decrease costs while increasing flexibility, revenue, and efficiency.
Over the next two years, approximately 60% of service providers (both large and small) will adopt virtualization on a wide scale across their networks, according to the latest survey report from Ovum. Why are providers making these moves? Is there an easy way to start?
Learn how and why service providers are using virtualization to transform their networks. This webinar will look at how providers are leveraging virtualization to create more flexible and agile networks while also providing a better customer experience. Expert speakers from netElastic and Heavy Reading will address the industry drivers for network virtualization, the benefits that can be realized, the challenges to face and the results of virtualization being achieved by providers today.
Key topics will include:
Current network infrastructure and the move to virtualization
Benefits and challenges of network virtualization
How providers can get started
Service provider success stories: the decision to virtualize, the solution, and results
