STL proclaims a path-breaking built-in software-defined answer for entry networks

Amongst world’s first to launch a programmable, open, disaggregated answer for FTTx

Santa Clara, USA – September 12, 2019: STL [BSE: 532374, NSE: STRTECH], a world information community options firm, immediately unveiled its programmable FTTx (pFTTx) answer for fiber-based entry connectivity at ONF (Open Networking Basis) Join 2019 held at Santa Clara, California.

With the pFTTx announcement, STL turns into considered one of only a few firms on this planet to have a software-defined community (SDN) answer for entry connectivity. Constructed on ONF’s open reference design referred to as SEBA (Software program-defined networks Enabled Broadband Entry), STL has developed the pFTTx answer in partnership with ONF, different open communities, and open community {hardware} companion Edgecore Networks.

Programmability makes SDNs the way forward for networking. By enabling programmability on the core of the community and decoupling white-box {hardware} from software program, SDNs deliver extra flexibility, value effectivity and repair excellence to information networks. In an trade weighed by legacy monolithic methods and infrastructure, and lengthy durations of vendor lock-in, STL is driving break-through disruption with programmable, open networks.

Asserting the pFTTx answer on the convention, Guru Parulkar, Govt Director, ONF, mentioned “STL’s disruptive pFTTx comes at a time when communication service suppliers will drastically profit from agility, sooner time to market, decrease value and enhanced buyer expertise.” He added, “We’re delighted to have STL as an energetic member of the open-source neighborhood, productizing and commercializing open platforms resembling VOLTHA (Digital OLT {Hardware} Abstraction), ONOS (Open Community Working System) and SEBA.”

“We’re excited to companion with STL and the neighborhood. Software program-defined options resembling pFTTx will scale back {hardware} and software program prices with open community {hardware} on the edge, offering larger agility for innovation, and free suppliers from vendor lock-in,” mentioned George Tchaparian, President and CEO, Edgecore Networks.

“At its core, STL’s pFTTx is constructed on disruptive SDN and Community Perform Virtualization (NFV) applied sciences. It’ll convert present FTTx networks to programmable FTTx, thereby offering radical flexibility to service suppliers’ enterprise fashions,” mentioned Ayush Sharma, Head of Programmable Networking and Intelligence, STL.

The hyper-scale networks of tomorrow are in contrast to the normal ones. They’re denser, deeply fiberized and software-defined with computing on the edge. STL is the one firm on this planet to have distinctive capabilities throughout all layers of the community: From photonics and materials science-based precision manufacturing to algorithmic design of the final mile, ultra-fast infrastructure deployment, AI/analytics and programmable networks. This strategically positions STL to steer community disruption.
