Radisys Shows Multi-Access CORD and Extensible RAN

Radisys will be showcasing the first Multi-Access Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter (Multi-Access CORD) proof-of-concept and an Extensible RAN (xRAN) PoC at this week's MWC Americas in San Francisco.

CORD is an open architecture platform that leverages data center efficiencies for the delivery of mobile, residential and enterprise services. The initiative was initially developed by ON.Lab as a use case for the ONOS open source SDN operating system, and is now managed as an independent open source project under The Linux Foundation.

Radisys said its two new use cases, both running on its DCEngine open hardware, enable Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to optimize resources in a CORD environment, allowing for rapid roll-out of new services with a better return on investment. Radisys’ Multi-Access CORD use case demonstration proves that since the flexible CORD architecture is agnostic to the access technologies, CSPs can leverage the same CORD data center for both wireline and wireless access. CSPs can thereby deliver a higher quality experience to their subscribers with one open architecture, while reducing network complexity and costs. Radisys’ xRAN use case demonstration allows CSPs to optimize scarce over-the-air resources leveraging real-time data analytics of network conditions. This software-based approach to RAN reduces complexity, OpEx and CapEx, while allowing CSPs to respond real-time to user needs and rapidly roll-out new services.

“The CORD reference architecture meets CSP requirements for next-gen service delivery, while at the same time freeing them from vendor-locked solutions,” said Bryan Sadowski, vice president, FlowEngine and DCEngine, Radisys. “Radisys, in collaboration with the ONF, is making the CORD architecture accessible to CSPs for deployment with these innovative proof-of-concepts as the first step toward Central Office transformation.”

Radisys Announces Next-Generation DCEngine Hardware

Radisys released its next-generation DCEngine hardware, a pre-packaged rack solution based on Open Compute Project (OCP) principles and designed to transition Communications Service Providers (CSPs) to virtualized data centers.

DCEngine, which is based on the OCP-ACCEPTED CG-OpenRack-19 specification, leverages the Intel Xeon Scalable processors. It supports Intel Xeon Scalable Architecture-based compute and storage sleds, with a wide range of processing options that can be installed and tuned up inside existing DCEngine systems in minutes. DCEngine meets CSP requirements for an enhanced, scalable power systems that delivers 25,000W per feed for higher processor density, greater efficiency and lowered expenses as well as DC and AC power entry options suitable for a wide range of environments. It also offers an In-rack Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) option to support simplified infrastructure, easy maintenance and lower overhead. Radisys delivers the final pre-assembled DCEngine rack with no on-site setup.

Radisys said its next-gen DCEngine supports CSPs transition away from proprietary hardware and vendor lock-in to a data center environment built with open source software and hardware components. The enhanced rack design, combined with operations and support modeled after Facebook practices, can bring an annual OpEx saving of nearly 40 percent compared to traditional data center offerings, while reducing deployment time from months to just days.

“Our CSP customers are requiring open telecom solutions to support their data center transformations, easing their pain points around power and costs, while simplifying their operational complexities,” said Bryan Sadowski, vice president, FlowEngine and DCEngine, Radisys. “With the next-generation DCEngine, combined with Radisys’ deep telco expertise and OCP’s operations/support model, service providers not only get innovation and service agility, but also gain significant TCO savings.”

Criterion Offers Support for CORD

Criterion Networks, a network transformation and solution integration company with a focus on supporting the adoption of SDN, NFV and the cloud, announced the availability of the Mysterious-Decision release of CORD (Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter) on the Criterion SDCloud platform.

Criterion Networks stated that as enterprises and service providers move towards SDN/NFV deployment, it can provide an on-demand SDN/NFV solution environment. SDCloud Enterprise, Criterion's SaaS-based solution orchestration platform is designed to enable customers to bring up the SDN/NFV solution environment of their choice for development, evaluation and learning.

The cloud-based development and test environment, CORD-in-the-Cloud (CiTC), is designed to simplify the process of launching the SDCloud solution and allows for one touch provisioning of the components of CORD in an isolated, multi-node virtual environment. CiTC also offers a base platform to build more complex use cases such as Mobile CORD (M-CORD).

The company noted that reliably implementing complex test-beds such as CORD in a stable manner presents a challenge for developers. CiTC facilitates test-bed creation and is designed to help customers realise the potential of CORD. With all components of CORD instantiated by SDCloud, customers are able to validate configurations with different versions of the solution components, change controllers, orchestrators or the Open Stack VIM, which constitute key components of the CORD framework.

Criterion Networks, an early contributor to ON.Lab and ONF, provides CiTC for established use cases such as R-CORD and is used by ON.Lab for development purposes. It also offers complex solutions such as CiTC, OpenStack sandboxes with different SDN controllers and other OpenStack integrated SDN/NFV solutions, together with eLearning programs through the Criterion Networking Academy.

Criterion launched its SDCloud Platform in April 2016, offering a scalable on-demand cloud deployment and provisioning platform for evaluating SDN/NFV and OpenStack solutions. The platform initially provided support for Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) use-case solution.

CenturyLink implements vBNG using CORD

CenturyLink announced that as part of a program to transform its central offices using next-generation virtual functionality designed to speed the delivery of broadband services to customers, it has become the first carrier to use its own virtualised broadband network gateway (vBNG) to support broadband services based on the Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter (CORD) design.

The implementation marks a key step in CenturyLink's efforts to virtualise its infrastructure within the central office, which comprises part of the company's wider program to establish full virtualisation across its global IP core network by the end of 2019.

Through adopting CORD, CenturyLink is using software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualisation (NFV) with the aim of bringing data centre economics and cloud agility to its central offices and to enable faster and more efficient delivery of new services to its residential and business customers. The deployment features CenturyLink's SDN access controller, an OpenDaylight-based controller stack that integrates its legacy OSS and latest orchestration platforms.

CenturyLink noted that in addition to virtualising its infrastructure, it is to developing and implementing virtualised services, including a virtual firewall, data centre interconnection and software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) for enterprise customers. Through these virtualisation initiatives, CenturyLink is seeking to enhance the customer experience by providing greater control of their services.

In June 2016, CenturyLink announced it had acquired certain assets of the company formerly known as Active Broadband Networks, a provider of software-based broadband networking solutions. The operator stated that the assets would help accelerate its efforts to automate its network, transition network functions into the cloud and deliver SDN and NFV services.

The company formerly known as Active Broadband Networks uses SDN and NFV technologies to provide broadband edge solutions to service providers designed to enable a cloud-based service infrastructure. The company specifically developed the Software-Defined Broadband Network Gateway (SD-BNG), designed to offer a cost-effective alternative for xDSL providers deploying G.fast. The SD-BNG solution was a software platform for deployment virtually or as part of a cloud infrastructure.

CORD and xRAN Consortium Partner in Software-based Extensible RAN

CORD and xRAN consortium partner to develop carrier grade software-based, extensible RAN February 23rd The CORD Project, an open source project seeking reinvent network access via enabling data centre economics and cloud agility in the central office, announces an agreement to partner with xRAN Foundation to collaborate on standardising and promoting a software-based, extensible RAN (xRAN) architecture.

The partnership is intended to deliver a carrier grade, open reference implementation of xRAN specifications within M-CORD for a next generation RAN architecture. Designed to address the challenges associated with closed, proprietary RAN systems and the future demands of 5G, the CORD Project and xRAN are combining two ecosystems of service providers, vendor and open source communities.

Through the initiative, the xRAN consortium will focus on developing software-defined standards for the architecture and interface definitions for next-generation RAN; the CORD community will focus on implementing xRAN standard APIs, a RAN controller based on ONOS and example RAN control applications for the M-CORD platform leveraging both open and closed hardware from multiple vendors.

As part of the partnership, ON.Lab has announced the appointment of Dr. Sachin Katti, Professor of EE and CS at Stanford University, as chief scientist for mobility to guide the integration of xRAN with M-CORD.

The collaboration is expected to establish a symbiotic relationship between standards and API specifications and reference implementations, and thereby allow the use of specifications to help improve the reference implementation, while experience with the reference implementation can help improve specifications. In addition, extended engagement with the open networking ecosystem will help to create software- defined standards and a reference implementation, and help speed the adoption of software defined RANs.

Founded in October 2016, the xRAN consortium has developed standardised RAN control interfaces that allow carrier applications to programmatically control multi-vendor RAN infrastructure and have been adopted by carriers. xRAN aims to decouple the RAN control plane from the user plane, build a modular eNB software stack that operates on COTS hardware and release open north- and south-bound interfaces.

Members of the xRAN consortium include AT&T, Deutsche Telekom and SK Telecom, plus Intel, Texas Instruments, Aricent, Radisys and Stanford University.

Regarding the partnership, Andre Fuetsch, president of AT&T Labs and CTO, commented, "AT&T has been a founding member and active supporter of both xRAN and CORD, and the time is right for xRAN and M-CORD to come together… the xRAN and M-CORD partnership will allow the building of mobile access networks with the ability to customise and optimise the RAN and to more quickly create new services…".
