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 Announces Full Support for Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway (DCSG) Technology

Volta Networks today announced its full support for the Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway (DCSG), an open approach to build out 5G transport networks. The requirements were created by the Telecom Infra Project’s (TIP) Open Optical & Packet Transport (OOPT) project group and have gained significant traction in the telecommunications and networking industries. DCSG is critical to the development and deployment of 5G technology on a global scale and enables a series of technical features and new services. Volta’s solution is fully tested, DCSG compliant, and generally available now for customer deployments.

Webinar: Leveraging the Cloud in the New 5G Edge

Thursday, September 10, 2020 AVAILABLE ON DEMAND

5G iconVirtualization and the cloud have redefined computing and are key elements in the transformation of the service edge. 5G deployment is driving changes in the service edge, ushering in dramatically more cell sites and delivering 10 times or more bandwidth per user. 5G also enables a broad range of new applications from IoT to smart cities to manufacturing over an increasingly converged network.

Join Jennifer Clark, Principal Analyst – Cloud Infrastructure and Edge Computing, Heavy Reading, and Volta as we look at the emerging application requirements and how the network and infrastructure can be implemented to support them. We will use MEC as a use case and consider the role of traditional cloud vendors and how that will impact MNOs. Finally, we look at the options to virtualize network functions and their impact on performance and cost.

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.
