Active Broadband Networks and Allied Telesis to Showcase Cloud Delivery Solution for Smaller Operators

Solution Leverages Cloud and SDN/NFV Principles to Achieve Capital and Operational Savings

FRAMINGHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 9, 2015) - Active Broadband Networks, the emerging leader in Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) for broadband service providers, and Allied Telesis, a global provider of secure IP/Ethernet switching solutions, and an industry leader in the deployment of IP Triple Play networks, today announced that they will be demonstrating a joint hybrid cloud solution that brings together Active Broadband's Software-Defined Broadband Network Gateway (SD-BNG) with Allied Telesis' EtherGRID™ application hybrid cloud delivery platform. The companies will be demonstrating the solution at the Light Reading Big Telecom Event in Chicago, June 9-10, at Booth #461.

Active Broadband's Software-Defined Broadband Network Gateway (SD-BNG) connects edge services directly to the cloud using existing access infrastructure, enabling operators to deliver connectivity, network, infrastructure and applications services from a uniform platform unlocking service opportunities and reducing costs. Comprising the Active Resource Controller (ARC), an SDN controller optimized for broadband service delivery with integrated orchestration, activation, analytics, policy and QoE management, and the Active Programmable Gateway (APG), an all-software forwarding engine, the SD-BNG gives operators the ability to deliver connectivity, managed, compute and application services from a single platform, allowing them to leverage the automation of webscale to achieve meaningful competitive advantage.

"Software democratizes broadband networking, and by leveraging EtherGRID™ with our SDN software, we can make the benefits of next-generation technology available to a greater range of service providers," said Adam Dunstan, co-founder and CEO of Active Broadband Networks. "Existing BNG vendors' platforms have focused on scale that only benefits very large operators. This combined solution unlocks tremendous functionality and efficiency that can result in meaningful competitive advantage for all operators."

Allied Telesis' EtherGRID™ is a next-generation hybrid cloud platform designed for enterprises and Communication Service Providers (CSPs) that want to leverage cloud technology principles across their own infrastructure versus as a pure public cloud play.

"Our goal is to provide customers a roadmap to transform their current business model and take advantage of new cloud-based solutions. By deploying an EtherGRID™ with AMF/SDN and NFV features customers can realize greater network efficiency and improved QoE, as well as rapidly deploy new applications," said Philip Yim, senior vice president of Global Program Management at Allied Telesis.
