Netomnia, STL set live network tests of programmable FTTx

May 23, 2022
The announcement comes as the two companies have partnered for support of Netomnia’s fiber to the premises (FTTP) roll out.

STL (NSE:STLTECH) says it will collaborate with UK broadband altnet operator Netomnia on test of STL’s programmable FTTx (pFTTx) software. The tests will run over Netomnia’s live networks.

The announcement comes as the two companies have partnered for support of Netomnia’s fiber to the premises (FTTP) roll out (see “STL to aid Netomnia FTTP deployments in the UK”). Now, Netomnia and STL will trial pFTTx, which the latter says is designed to provide scalability, detailed telemetry reports, open community alignment (ONF/BBF/ITU-T), and onboarding of third-party quality of experience (QoE) applications. These benefits will in turn improve customer experience, accelerate time-to-market, and reduce total cost of ownership, the communications technology vendor adds.

“The promise of full-fiber broadband will be realized when service providers implement advanced architectures that ‘software-ize’ the fiber networks,” commented Jeremy Chelot, CEO of Netomnia. “We are excited about the possibilities that STL’s pFTTx solution presents. This trial with STL will be significant as we will jointly demonstrate pFTTx in a live scenario.”

“pFTTx is a cloud-based access network solution that elevates the network service providers’ business model. We are excited to collaborate with Netomnia for their ultrafast full-fiber broadband program. Our solution is intended to help them achieve accelerated network rollout with faster deployment, provisioning, and enhanced network performance,” added Chris Rice, CEO, access solutions at STL.
