Sterlite Tech to create optical transport controller for Voyager and Cassini platforms in collaboration with the Telecom Infra Project

Once developed, the solution will manage and control TIP members’ Voyager and Cassini platforms, bringing operating flexibility and reduced costs for operators.

Sterlite Tech a global data network solutions company, today announced a collaboration with the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) to enhance data networks of the future. The collaboration will see the creation of an optical transport controller to manage and control Voyager and Cassini platforms developed by TIP members.

TIP is a collaborative telecom community launched in February 2016 to accelerate the pace of innovation in the telecom industry. The Open Optical and Packet Transport (OOPT) project group is creating open DWDM solutions, models and APIs, covering transponders, open line systems, and routers. This will help accelerate industry standardisation of packet optical interfaces, and drive adoption of disaggregated transport platforms.

Sterlite Tech, which is developing Programmable Open Disaggregated Solution (PODS), in association with the open community, will collaborate with TIP to create an optical transport controller. This will manage and control the disaggregated optical solutions promoted by TIP, bringing more operating flexibility to network operators and helping them keep costs low. In addition, Sterlite Tech will build a virtualised application on the controller which will be used to manage the data plane on these platforms. The controller will be open and will be contributed to the TIP community to drive more use cases and bring TIP’s work and optical transport networks together.

“Optical networks are the basis of operators’ transport infrastructure,” said Ayush Sharma, Head of Programmable Networking and Intelligence, Sterlite Tech. “This collaboration with TIP will bring increased openness to smarter networks, making them more agile and cost-effective through the use of programmable, virtualised technologies such as software-defined networking.”

PODS leverages open technology to enable programmability at the hardware and software level of radio access networks. Combination of this with TIP’s platforms will make the DWDM architecture more affordable, improve customer experience and create excellence in technology.
