Volta Networks delivers the first cloud-native routing engine which reduces cost by an order of magnitude by using the cloud to optimize routing for low cost, white box switches. Unlike legacy routers or routing appliances, Volta enables much lower cost by virtualizing and scaling the routing control plane while using automation to accelerate new network services.

White Paper: Rethink 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 white box switches. This is made possible by the Volta Elastic Virtual Routing Engine running any 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.

White Paper

NEW Rethinking TCO

Service providers spend billions each year on routers and switches. IP is taking over the network as the traffic continues to grow at extraordinary rates. One of the reasons for the dominance of IP is its lower cost than other technologies. Service providers are actively looking for ways to reduce costs while also making investments to drive new sources of revenue.

As network functions virtualize, network operators have an opportunity to use router virtualization to reduce costs and enable new services.

Upcoming Webinar: Virtual Routers for flexible, future-proof 5G transport

Join IHS, Volta, and Fujitsu on December 10 and get a free report from IHS

Report cover

Heidi Adams from IHS leads a discussion of the evolving service edge as service providers gear up for 5G. 5G brings the promise of ultra-broadband speeds, ultra-reliable low-latency services, and the ability to support massively scaled communications for a wide range of IoT devices and applications. These services will place new demands on the underlying IP transport infrastructure. In response, new solutions – such as virtual routers – are emerging to enable higher-capacity, flexible and more efficient IP networks for mobile xHaul applications. Join this webinar to learn how cloud-native virtualized routers can play a leading role in meeting 5G transport requirements.

Why Volta

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 operators complete flexibility when connecting applications, services, customers or networks.

Built for Carrier Automation

Volta's cloud-based APIs provide the perfect connection point to MANO systems. With full support for leading standards including NETCONF and YANG, we are built for carrier automation.

Fully Interoperable

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.

Unique IP

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.
