Iskratel, a leading European provider of broadband access solutions has launched a complete, integrated Software-Defined PON (SD-PON) solution, leveraging Radisys’ SD-PON framework for broadband access disaggregation.

Based on open-community initiatives and the Open Networking Foundation’s (ONF) CORD architecture, the SD-PON solution is the first-of-its-kind in the market, providing operators with the reliability, scalability and manageability that is essential for enabling carrier-grade, real-life service-delivery environments. In addition to this, the solution is verified to provide line-rate services to end users.

For the solution, Iskratel provided its SI3000 Lumia dual-nature GPON Optical Line Terminal (OLT) which takes the role of a physical OLT (pOLT) in the setup. Iskratel’s SI3000 Lumia GPON pOLT integrates with Radisys' cloud-based SD-PON which provides the control and management planes of the solution and has the ability to integrate with orchestration, management systems and auto-configuration systems based on Broadband Forum’s TR-069 protocol.

For the first time, operators will have the confidence to deploy a virtualised PON solution into their carrier-networks, providing the reliability, scalability and manageability which is so critical in real-life service delivery environments.

As the demand for software solutions to support the evolution of legacy networks to new, cloud-based infrastructures increases, we are continuously looking to grow our technology partner ecosystem – and Iskratel’s offering is unique and complementary.
