Aricent has announced an Open Source collaboration with CableLabs on a self-managed virtual infrastructure platform on the Kubernetes and the Docker container model.

The Docker-based container network function virtualization (NFV) platform is designed to allow cable operators to auto-configure and abstract away the complexity from cloud-native network, compute, and storage implementations.

The SNAPS-Kubernetes platform is intended to let MSOs adopt a de facto standard container model for network functions and microservices in the headend, and to let developers consume a managed platform that abstracts away complexity so they can onboard cloud-based applications without the hassle.

"We believe in contributing to Open Source communities because it's the basis for more decentralized value creation that will accelerate innovation," said Walid Negm, chief technology officer at Aricent. "Successful Open Source projects need a community, so in 2017 we worked with CableLabs, the cable industry and ultimately the OPNFV project. With this latest Kubernetes platform, we are delivering more choice for cable companies and cable equipment manufacturers. They can hit the ground running with cloud-native systems, dramatically cut operating costs and secure new sources of revenue."

Aricent will be demonstrating the solution at the CableLabs Summer Conference 2018 in Keystone, CO.
