At CableLabs' Summer Conference 2018 in Keystone, CO, Intraway and Casa Systems will showcase their collaborative working proof of concept to facilitate multi-level orchestration of a virtual Converged Cable Access Platform (vCCAP) and Remote PHY over a virtual network infrastructure.

The Intraway/Casa Systems collaboration is intended to solve one of virtualization's greatest challenges - NFV interoperability. The demonstration will involve Casa's AxyomTM vCCAP operating in an NFV environment by interfacing with Intraway's Symphonica Orchestrator using native NETCONF/YANG APIs. Casa's Axyom vCCAP is designed to enable standards-based virtualized DAA deployments with open APIs for service orchestration.

Intraway's multi-level orchestration of a virtual network infrastructure is designed to support Distributed Access Architectures (DAA). The Intraway solution manages the orchestration processes required to deploy the distributed platforms, supporting high volumes of transactions with zero-touch service order management.

"Intraway and Casa Systems are demonstrating how multi-level orchestration simplifies decentralized platform installation and setup, as well as complex fulfillment flows needed to deploy and configure vCCAPs and RPDs (Remote PHY devices). Basically, you can automate once and run anywhere," said Steve Marsh, Intraway's CTO.

"Service providers are looking for ways to reduce network complexity and automate complex processes," said Jerry Guo, CEO at Casa Systems. "This innovative proof of concept marks another milestone in Casa's strategy to help service providers evolve their cable access networks and more quickly realize the benefits of distributed, virtualized infrastructures."
