Telia Carrier implements RPKI to protect Internet core

Telia Carrier, which is currently ranked the number one global IP backbone (AS1299) by Dyn Research, has implemented RPKI to validate and secure critical BGP route updates.

RPKI (Resource Public Key Infrastructure) is a mechanism by which Internet address (IP) resource owners can ensure that they provide an authoritative list of allowable upstreams to the world. Network Operators who adopt RPKI validation and filtering can then choose to reject announcements from networks not authorised to advertise those resources. Although not a new technology, RPKI has struggled, like IPv6, with poor uptake across resource owners and network operators. Essentially, RPKI reduces the risk of accidental route leaks, or even hijacks, which can result in critical outages or fraudulent traffic manipulation.

“As the leading global Internet backbone, route stability is paramount and we encourage our network customers, peers and the Internet community, in general, to support the RPKI initiative by implementing it in their own networks,” explained Jorg Dekker, Head of Internet Services, Telia Carrier. “We joined MANRS officially last year, and after extensive testing we’re confident that RPKI is sufficiently stable and secure to be rolled-out in our global network. We have already implemented RPKI filtering towards our peering partners and are currently extending this to our customer connections.”

Wireless Innovation Forum hails initial CBRS commercial deployment

The Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) announced Initial Commercial Deployment (ICD) of services in the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band.

Amdocs, CommScope, Federated Wireless, Google, and Sony have received FCC Spectrum Access Systems (SAS) approval.

WInnForum’s Spectrum Sharing Committee (SSC) was specifically formed to develop the solutions and standards that will encourage rapid development of the CBRS ecosystem, protect incumbent operations, and benefit all potential stakeholders in the band. The SSC benefits from participation of a broad-based group that includes wireless carriers, network equipment manufacturers, potential SAS Administrators, federal government incumbents, satellite operators, existing 3650-3700 MHz band licensees, and other parties with an interest in the 3.5 GHz band.

On the heels of the group’s release of the complete baseline standards package in January 2018, the WInnForum delivered test code to the government’s test lab, the Institute for Telecommunications Sciences (ITS), in May of that year. ITS completed its laboratory testing of the SAS operational models provided by the above SAS administrators in May of the current year.

Dr. Eric Schmidt, ex-CEO and Chairman of Google and Alphabet, and Co-Chair of the PCAST study, stated: “The initiation of ICD validates the ability of Federal and civil users to work together to share spectrum, a feat that many had claimed could not be accomplished. When we proposed this joint cooperation in the PCAST report, it was unclear how it would occur. But, with the work of the FCC in establishing CBRS, and the WInnForum in creating this cooperation, we now see the PCAST vision happening. I look forward to seeing the innovation in wireless services, business models, and technologies that this will enable.”

SubCom confirms next gen SDM high fiber count undersea systems

SubCom confirmed the manufacturing and installation of next-generation SDM high fiber count (HFC) undersea systems. The company’s repeaters incorporate SDM technology with an HFC solution that utilizes pump sharing amplifier architecture for increased system reliability and optimized cost-effective capacity. This flexible architecture allows every amplifier to be supported by a combination of pump lasers, thus providing maximum overall capacity across 12FP, 16FP and 24FP trunk and branch segments.

SubCom also confirmed that its Wavelength Selective Switch (WSS) ROADM technology is now in production. WSS filter technology supports fully-flexible, reconfigurable routing of the optical spectrum on each fiber pair. This flexibility allows customers to dynamically reassign the optical spectrum between trunk and branches throughout the system’s life to achieve maximum value. Further flexibility is achieved using SubCom’s enhanced branching units (eBU) for optical path switching on up to 24FP branches.

To drive improvements in cable manufacturing, optical assembly and system integration, SubCom is using the latest tools and technologies at its factory in New Hampshire.

FCC approves CommScope's CBRS Spectrum Access System

CommScope received official notification from the FCC that its spectrum access system (SAS) to support the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) is now certified for initial commercial deployment.

With the notification earlier this year from the Institute for Telecommunication Sciences that its Environmental Sensing Capability (ESC) sensor passed testing, and the addition of Ruckus Networks’ Band 48 CBRS devices (or access points) and cloud services, CommScope said it is now poised to deliver on the promise of wireless coverage and capacity for in-building, public spaces and IoT.

“With the public notice from the FCC, companies can finally enter initial commercial deployment and begin to realize the value that private LTE can bring to their buildings, campuses, employees, customers and business,” said Iain Gillott, president and founder of iGR. “CommScope is demonstrating its commitment to bringing CBRS to life with a full solution consisting of CBRS access points, SAS and ESC. The industry needs an end-to-end solution to give organizations the ability to quickly, and confidently, deploy LTE-based wireless solutions.”


  • In 2018, AT&T announced CommScope was selected as the SAS provider for its first 5G-ready CBRS network solution. In addition, CommScope’s SAS is in trials with other major carriers for customers in a variety of industries.



CBRS milestone: Commscope and Google pass test

The Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS) has given a passing grade to a Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) Environmental Sensing Capability (ESC) system developed by CommScope and Google.

ITS, which is part of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), is the official test lab that has been tasked with confirming the performance of ESCs.

CBRS provides 150 MHz of spectrum in the 3.5 GHz band in the U.S. CBRS spectrum is managed by Spectrum Access Systems (SASs) but will require an ESC network to detect federal radar operations. The ESC will alert the SASs of federal radar activity, and SASs will then reconfigure nearby CBRS devices to operate without interfering with federal operations.

“Our ESC sensor has passed all required testing for certification - demonstrating that we can detect all current and future radar waveforms and our respective SASs can protect incumbent users,” said Mat Varghese, Senior Product Manager, Wireless Services, Google. “This is an important milestone and we are looking ahead toward commercial operations in CBRS.”

Comcast activates Trellis Open Source Networking Fabric

Comcast has reached production roll-out of the Trellis Open Source Network Fabric as part of Comcast’s Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) buildout. The implementation relies on whitebox-based Ethernet backhaul to improve network scalability and space/power efficiencies in the head-ends.

The announcement, which was made at the ONF Connect conference in Santa Clara, California, is a milestone in Comcast's DAA evolution and a key proof point for the ONF.

Comcast confirmed that it is now running Trellis in multiple markets and that rollouts are accelerating. 

ONF’s Trellis is an open-source, SDN based, multi-purpose spine-leaf switching fabric supporting distributed access-and-edge networks, NFV and edge cloud applications. Trellis leverages the ONOS open source SDN controller, the OpenFlow protocol and white box switches. Trellis implementations are significantly simpler and more adaptable than a conventional network that relies on embedded routing and switching protocols running on each individual switch. For example, instead of having to configure and run distributed multicast routing protocols, intelligence is centralized in Trellis and run in a cloud-native fashion on a resilient cluster of standard compute nodes.

“In collaboration with the ONF and a team of supply chain vendors, Comcast is deploying the open source Trellis platform as the networking fabric in our next generation access network,” said Elad Nafshi, Senior Vice President, Next Generation Access Networks, Comcast.  “This has been a multiple year journey from design, to extensive field trails and finally to production rollout, and we’re impressed with the results and the advantages that using open source and Trellis are delivering for us as we upgrade our access network.”

“The open source ecosystem created by ONF has collectively established a new ‘Distributed DevOps’ model through the process of trialing, hardening and deploying Trellis with Comcast.  This has established a new formula for open source whereby an operator, ONF and a consortium of commercial entities come together to collectively build and stand behind a deployment,” said Saurav Das, Vice President of Engineering for the ONF.





  • Trellis defines a solution for an open multi-purpose L2/L3 spine-leaf Ethernet switch fabric for edge data centers and for interconnecting multiple sites.  It supports Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs) running on servers, network functions implemented directly within the switch fabric itself, and the interconnection of local and remote resources all in a single solution. Trellis builds a non-blocking fabric using OpenFlow® controlled white box switching hardware and open source software. The Trellis fabric does not run any embedded control protocols on the switches (e.g. BGP, OSPF or RSTP). Instead, intelligence is moved into applications running on a clustered ONOS controller.  Fabric switches are thus simplified, and the fabric can be optimized by leveraging a holistic view of all activity while new features and functionality can be deployed without upgrading the switches. See ONF Reference Design TS-101 Trellis v1.0

ONF Connect 2019 Update with Guru Parulkar



The big news from the Open Networking Foundation is that Comcast has gone live with major deployment of Trellis, the ONF's open source SDN/NFV based fabric for access technologies, says Guru Parulkar, Executive Director, ONF.  This is a major validation of the network architecture that ONF has been developing.

This video provides a quick wrap-up of this year's ONF Connect 2019 event in Silicon Valley, along with a status update on the ONF's marquee projects, including Trellis, SEBA, Stratum and P4.






OTEGLOBE doubles subsea network capacity with Infinera

OTEGLOBE, a leading network backbone operator based in Athens, has deployed Infinera’s fourth-generation Infinite Capacity Engine (ICE4) technology to double the capacity on its international subsea network on the subsea links between Greece and Italy.

Infinera said its ICE4 technology enables the terabit capacity and reach required for these unrepeatered subsea cables. The deployment also provides OTEGLOBE taking advantage of the unique features of this optical engine that include Nyquist subcarriers, soft-decision forward error correction gain sharing, and photonic integrated circuit-based shared wavelength locker technology.

The two unrepeatered subsea cables between Greece and Italy, of approximately 350 kilometers each, are a key part of OTEGLOBE’s network and are essential for OTEGLOBE to extract maximum capacity from that asset. By combining a resilient subsea route with its terrestrial European network, OTEGLOBE provides an alternative route for wholesale carriers in Europe to connect to Asia and the rest of the world via its Mediterranean hub in Greece. Traffic from Asia is routed through the AAE-1 subsea cable to OTEGLOBE’s landing station at Chania, then on through OTEGLOBE’s diverse and protected terrestrial network to Europe, ensuring resilience and diversity in the region. Chania can also be used as an alternative landing in EMEA, attracting new cables that can benefit from OTEGLOBE’s reliable network.

“Greece is becoming a significant alternative hub for network capacity, connecting Europe to Asia and the rest of the world,” said Panagiota Bosodgianni, CTO of OTEGLOBE. “Our wholesale customers increasingly demand higher bandwidth and more reliable services, and to meet their needs, we require the best and most innovative technology on the market. With the introduction of ICE4, we managed to reach 10.8 Tb/s on the unrepeatered subsea links, exceeding our expectations.”

“Infinera is pleased to support OTEGLOBE in delivering reliable, high-capacity services to its customers,” said Bob Jandro, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales at Infinera. “OTEGLOBE’s terrestrial network is powered by Infinera’s solutions, and the upgrade of its subsea cable system with ICE4 underscores the value of our technology in thriving terrestrial and subsea applications. By deploying Infinera’s innovative ICE-based subsea solution, OTEGLOBE is able to significantly increase capacity, exceeding expectations, on legacy cables.”
