Volta Networks is rethinking routing.
We are taking the control plane and putting it into the cloud. This is the perfect complement to commercially available low cost, high performance switch hardware known as white box switches. This is made possible by the Volta Elastic Virtual Routing Engine running a private, public or hybrid cloud. With our full featured control plane running in the cloud, customers can start small and build large networking infrastructures that provide unparalleled levels of flexibility and scalability at a fraction of the cost of conventional chassis-bound routers. To get the details, get our white paper.

Reduces TCO by 90%
Volta allows network operators to take full advantage of low cost white box switches while providing the equivalent cost reduction by deploying the control plane in the cloud. Customers will see TCO savings of up to 10x when compared with legacy routing platforms.
The Elastic Cloud
As a native cloud application, Volta takes full advantage of the elastic nature of the cloud and ensures that resources are used efficiently regardless of the scope of the deployment. By building on cloud native technologies, we give the operator the means to scale out instead of being forced to scale up with more expensive routers.
Scales Virtual Routing
The VEVRE is used to create Virtual Routers (VR) which consist of one VRP and physical or virtual ports on a device running a vAgent. We lead the industry with up to 255 VRs on a single device, allowing network oerators complete flexiblity when connecting applications, services, cusotmers or networks..
Built for Carrier Automation
Volta's cloud based APIs provide the perefect connection point to MANO systems. With full support for leading standards inclduing NETCONF and YANG, we are built for carrier automation.
Volta supports a wide range of routing and transport protocols. Our routing suite is based on the Free Range Routing open source suite and has demonstrated interoperability. Volta is a contributor to the FRR community.
The Volta Agent runs on the switch and provides for local autonomous control. We have filed for a patent on the process we use to compress the instructions (the Forwarding Information Base or FIB) the switch needs. This unique technology ensures the switch will operate at peak performance.
