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.

TechTarget 2019 Network Innovation Award for Innovation in Cloud-based Routing

NIA Award Logo

“Networking startup Volta Networks — winner of TechTarget’s Network Innovation Award — is one of a handful of young companies aiming to change the routing game. Drawing inspiration from server virtualization and software-defined networking, or SDN, Volta created a disaggregated, cloud-based routing platform that allows service providers to run up to 255 virtual routing instances on a single white box switch. Decoupling software from hardware and moving the control plane to the cloud can lower costs and increase agility, which is of growing interest at the edge as the 5G era dawns.”

Webinar On Demand: Virtual Routers for 5G Transport

See what IHS, Volta, and Fujitsu had to say and get a free report from IHS

Report cover

On December 10, Heidi Adams from IHS lead 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. Watch this webinar to learn how cloud-native virtualized routers can play a leading role in meeting 5G transport requirements.

IDC Report

Volta Named an IDC Innovator for Disaggregated Routing Platforms

“Volta has rethought SP routing, with the goal of reducing costs while delivering scalable routing capabilities. Volta offers a cloud-native, cloud-hosted disaggregated control plane, which manages on-premise commodity switches to provide significantly lower capex and the ability to manage multiple virtual router instances on commodity hardware, improving operational agility and flexibility.”

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.
