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.

Upcoming Webinar: The Emerging Edge: What, where, when?

Tuesday, February 2, 2021 11 am EST

The move to the edge is giving rise to a new distributed computing ecosystem. Edge computing use cases will be realized through many workloads being distributed across this compute ecosystem, making the network, especially as 5G is deployed, vitally important in delivering a successful user experience.

Watch this webinar to find out the top use cases for edge computing, how workloads are being deployed to realize these use cases, and how to plan for and maximize opportunities from cloud to edge within this new compute ecosystem.

Everyone who registers for this webinar will receive a special report by keynote speaker Clifford Grossner,  Sr. Director Research & Technology Fellow, Cloud & Data Center Research Practice, Omdia.

Webinar: The Outlook for Open and Disaggregated Packet and Optical Networks

Tuesday, January 26, 2021 at 10 am EST

Join Sterling Perrin, Principal Analyst for Optical Networking & Transport at Heavy Reading for this special Symposium-style webinar, as he provides a readout of key findings from an in-depth operator survey on key packet and optical transport trends. A world-class roster of presenters and panelists to discuss the future of disaggregation in packet and optical networks. Speakers will include visionary tier 1 operators and highly active suppliers within the TIP community.

Details and Register

Operators – whether deploying their own 5G mobile networks or building an infrastructure that could be used to support others’ 5G plans – face a variety of choices when it comes to their network roll outs. The articles in this On Topic editorial guide cover key drivers for 5G network evolution as well as the necessity for a new service edge. They also cover the role that PONs could play in 5G support as well as technology strategies that will save time and money.

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.
