Iskratel drives software-enabled broadband access with new ONF collaboration

Iskratel has joined the Open Networking Foundation (ONF), an operator led consortium spearheading disruptive network transformation, as an ONF Collaborator. This is part of Iskratel’s ongoing work to enable operators to seamlessly upgrade their networks to virtualised, cloud-based and Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter® (CORD®)-compatible infrastructures.

Iskratel’s ONF collaboration follows its development of the world’s first “dual-nature” xPON Optical line Terminal (OLT), which transforms its hardware-based SI3000 Lumia GPON OLT into a fully virtualised, CORD®-compatible OLT, via a simple software upgrade.

Iskratel will contribute to ONF’s initiative which is led by some of the world’s largest operators. The group aims to drive transformation of network infrastructure and carrier businesses models.
