As broadband demand continues to grow, service providers need to deliver superior performance, seamless scalability and a lower cost structure. Casa’s Fixed Network solutions leverage modern data center design principles to exceed market demands without compromises. Casa enables an open network which means that service providers are free to make the choices they need rather than being locked‑in to inflexible hardware and software.
The Axyom™ Multiservice Router (MSR) is the cornerstone for Casa’s Fixed Network solutions. The Axyom MSR is a decomposed / disaggregated router where the control and the data planes are separated and VNFs can be located where they provide the most value.
The MSR will support many services simultaneously. The initial services supported are:
To keep up with broadband demand, service providers have used proprietary routers to grow their edge networks. Cost and flexibility have been sacrificed because an open model did not exist and commodity hardware was not up for the task.
Casa’s Axyom Multiservice Router is a decomposed / disaggregated solution that runs in a data center architecture:
Using high performance commodity servers and open programmable switches, flexibility, performance and cost savings can be achieved without compromise. The data center architecture allows each VNF to scale independently delivering seamless scaling to tens of Tbps.
The Axyom PE Router can support the following enterprise and mobile network functions:
As a PE router, the MSR supports a wide array of virtualized subscriber management, session management and edge routing capabilities.
Casa’s Axyom Virtualized Broadband Network Gateway (vBNG) Router is a fully functioned BNG that is an application available on Casa’s Multiservice Router (MSR).
Offering full separation of control and data planes in a microservices based architecture, and the ability to deploy as virtual machines or in container-based environment, the Axyom vBNG provides the flexibility service providers need. Aligned with CORD or CloudCO data center architectures, Casa’s vBNG Router delivers industry-leading throughput and latency thanks to packet forwarding and software design innovations.
The Axyom vBNG can play a key role in Casa’s Axyom XGS-PON and NG-PON2 solutions. Flexibility and performance set the Axyom vBNG apart from its rivals and give service providers a critical asset for simplifying and virtualizing their networks.
Casa’s Next Gen PON Solution architecture can support both XGS-PON and NG-PON2. The solution consists of the follow elements:
