Open Networking for Telecom and Internet Service Providers

Open Networking Overview and Benefit
For years, hyperscale data center operators have been enjoying the benefit of open networking: automated and accelerated provisioning of network capacity and services, greater control over the development of enhanced network services, flexibility to work with the best-in-class suppliers reduced network equipment expenses, and reduced operating expense.  These open networking benefits are now available for many more networks users.

Now, open networking is addressing telecommunications service provider requirement for new central office architecture, managed service delivery, monitoring and analytics networks, and Internet Exchanges.

Edgecore Networks, together with its technology and integration partners, delivers the leading open networking solutions which meet the requirement for telecommunication service providers to upgrade its new networks to CORD (Central Office Re-architecture as Datacenter). CORD combines NFV, SDN, and elasticity of commodity clouds to bring datacenter economics and cloud agility to Central 
Office for Telecommunication.  

As an active member of OCP, ONF, TIP, DENT and Microsost SONiC open sostware community, Edgecore Networks actively offers choices of open source soſtware that provide network operators with open platform as well as enable value-added application development.

Community and Partners

Edgecore Networks contributes to the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) of the hardware design for the "Cassini" packet transponder, the industry's highest capacity and first modular open-source whitebox packet transponder offering a flexible mix of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) packet switching ports and 100/200 Gbps coherent optical interfaces for data center interconnect and service provider backhaul use cases. Cassini was developed by Edgecore Networks with leading optical companies — NTT Electronics, Acacia Communications, and Finisar Corporation.
