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.

Volta Networks to Support Telecom Infra Project’s Disaggregated Open Routers Initiative

Volta brings experience as industry’s first cloud-native, disaggregated routing software to DOR Project Team as Telecom Infra Project establishes an open, standard architecture and next-gen ecosystem for routing

BOSTON, March 20, 2020 — Volta Networks today announced its support for the Telecom Infra Project’s (TIP) Disaggregated Open Routers (DOR) initiative, which is being led by TIP’s Open Optical & Packet Transport (OOPT) Project Group. Volta will also join the DOR project team, which is driving research into new network architectures and services using disaggregated open routing among the global service provider and vendor community.

Webinar: How to Futureproof your 5G Transport Networks

Tuesday, April 28, 2020, at 8 am San Francisco / 11 am New York / 4 pm London

Everyone who registers for this webinar will receive a special report by Director, Research and Analysis Richard Webb.

How can operators build a roadmap for the transport network to create a single infrastructure across backhaul, midhaul and fronthaul? How can they cost-effectively meet the requirements of new 5G services absent a ‘one-size-fits-all’ transport solution? How can operators deliver routing and virtualization to support the emergence of denser radio networks? How can network and field operations verify that system performance meets 5G service criteria?

Join this webinar to find out how operators can transform their transport networks to succeed in the 5G era. Hosted by Omdia featuring Richard Webb, Director, Research and Analysis, Service Provider Technology, Omdia.

Webinar: Demystifying Virtual Routers

Available on Demand Featuring Lee Doyle of Doyle Research

Routing is evolving to meet the new needs of service providers as they rearchitect their networks. Routers must now support the ongoing demand for more bandwidth and faster pipes while addressing the changes needed for cloud computing, 4G virtualization, and 5G migration. Virtual routers are gaining significant interest as a way to drive costs down while improving agility. However, there are a number of different approaches to virtualizing the router.

In this webinar, we will look at different implementations of router virtualization including NFV and their implications for hardware, TCO and operations. We will review several case studies including RAN sharing, Virtual CE routers and Universal CPE (uCPE).

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.
