Updates for CORD - Central Office Re-architected as Data Center

Vendors are ready to show the first reference implementation of CORD - the Central Office Re-architected as Data Center - initiative within the ONOS Project. uUse cases for CORD are on display at this week's Open Networking Summit in Santa Clara, California.

CORD is expected to bring the economies of scale and the agility of cloud computing to the service provider central office by leveraging infrastructure constructed from commodity building blocks. It uses merchant silicon, white boxes and open-source platforms such as ONOS, OpenStack, and XOS.

CORD Use Cases Showcased at ONS:

Enterprise (E-CORD) - Extends CORD with enterprise services and enables service providers to offer SDN-WAN, as well as MEF carrier Ethernet services. That is the ability to create multi-site virtual networks on demand with customer-specified services such as intrusion detection, WAN acceleration, and others. E-CORD POC will be demonstrated at ONS.
Mobile (M-CORD) - Integrates disaggregated and virtualized RAN, disaggregated and virtualized EPC, and mobile edge computing with CORD and helps service providers and vendors move closer to realizing 5G. M-CORD POC will be demonstrated at ONS.
Residential (R-CORD) - Combines vCPE and virtualized wireline access technologies (e.g., GPON, 10GPON, G.Fast) with cloud-based subscriber services (e.g., parental control, video delivery). R-

Companies are actively contributing to and advancing CORD: AT&T, China Unicom, NTT Communications, SK Telecom, Verizon, Ciena, Cisco, Ericsson, Fujitsu, Huawei, Intel, NEC, Nokia
Collaborators: Accton, AirHop, Broadcom, Cavium, Celestica, Ciena, Cobham, Flextronics, NetCracker, PMC Sierra, Radisys.

"AT&T supports the goals and achievements that are embodied in CORD," said Andre Fuetsch, senior vice president of Architecture and Design at AT&T. "The work is pushing the boundaries of many technologies and architectures, as well as open source and open spec hardware. We are learning from the CORD experiments and trials and using this knowledge to refine AT&T's Integrated Cloud. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with ON.Lab and others in advancing NFV and SDN technology."
