Radisys, Calix Team Up to Bring Residential CORD (R-CORD) Platform to Market

Radisys is collaborating with Calix for the delivery of an end-to-end cloud edge solution using commercially available systems and software compliant with the Residential Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter (Residential CORD or R-CORD) architecture, advancing SDN, NFV, and the cloud model into the service provider access network. 

This integrated turnkey access solution for R-CORD combines the CORD open software and hardware building blocks with Radisys’ OCP-based DCEngine platform and the carrier-grade Calix AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System, featuring the recently announced AXOS OFx Connector with the open source vOLT-HA integration software as well as 10G PON converged fiber access (NG-PON2 and XGS-PON).

By deploying the converged cloud edge solution in their last mile network, service providers can accelerate new service introduction while maintaining the highest quality of experience for their subscribers. Trials of the R-CORD solution running on Radisys’ OCP-based DCEngine hyperscale platform integrated with the Calix AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System are currently underway with multiple tier-one service providers, said Radisys.

Shane Eleniak, VP of Systems Products, Calix
The Calix/Radisys R-CORD POD takes advantage of the flexibility and modular architecture of our award-winning AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System, AXOS OFx Connector, and vOLT-HA integration software. With this announcement, R-CORD has just made the leap from theory to reality. 

Bryan Sadowski, VP, FlowEngine and DCEngine, Radisys 
Our successful integration of the vOLT-HA software with Calix’s commercialized next-gen passive optical network (PON) system and the R-CORD open source reference architecture on DCEngine infrastructure delivers an adaptable software-defined cloud platform for accelerating service innovations at the network edge.
