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.
A budget of $61 billion to $118 billion would enable the US to bring 1-Gig to all locations that get less than 100/20 Mbit/s service that aren't tied to RDOF phase I, ACA Connects/Cartesian study finds.
Today’s access network architecture is under mounting pressure due to a continued surge in the number of connected devices, a proliferation of bandwidth-intensive customer applications and dramatic shifts in usage patterns related to the pandemic, such as work-from-home and e-learning.
Learn why now is the right time for cable operators to build greenfield networks or expand their existing networks with 10G PON, arming customers with high-speed symmetrical broadband. Gain a clear understanding of the drivers impacting the access network and the various approaches being considered to deliver higher speed services. Plus, find out the best practices that operators are employing as they leverage the latest in passive optical technology to future-proof their networks.
