This includes Layer 3 routing, policy, and instrumentation. By consolidating these functions into a single system, service providers can converge their disparate residential, mobile, and business services networks into one, dramatically reducing the total cost of ownership of the network by as much as 80% as stated by Lee Hicks of Verizon.

  • Reduced need to purchase new edge routers and aggregation switches to keep up with the bandwidth generated by NG-PON2
  • Consolidation of the management of the network by reducing the systems that must be provisioned and managed
  • Combined functionality allows for easy automation of the full end-to-end provisioning of subscriber turn-up and service creation.
