Remember when the triple play used to mean basic Internet access, cable television, and voice services?
Things have changed dramatically since ISPs began offering these home-based services a few decades back, and today triple play stakes are higher than ever, as consumers demand high-speed Internet, HD streaming video, and voice services embedded into applications, including voice-activated services.
We are now in the age of Gigabit-PON (G-PON) and XGS-PON, and in the age of single, small footprint, powerful unified home gateways that instantly provision a full range of sensors, cameras, and other devices, whether for entertainment, safety, telemedicine and more.
This week at Broadband World Forum 2021, Radisys will be demonstrating to the thousands of broadband service providers gathering in Amsterdam not only what is possible in this next-level world of at-home technology but how it is possible with cloud-native containerized solutions for PON, designed to enhance FTTx offerings.
Rajesh Chundury, VP of Customers Solutions for Radisys, will be presenting on the potential of the combination of fiber, cloud-native PON solutions, and affordable unified gateways, while also participating in the Open Networking Foundation’s workshop “Taking opensource to production in broadband network with VOLTHA, a community view,” alongside experts from Adtran, Deutsche Telekom, Netsia and Türk Telekom.
Radisys’ Connect Broadband Access Controller (CBAC) software enables service providers to evolve their fiber networks with an open software solution that facilitates faster product innovation cycles, increased automation, and deeper network visibility with both centralized and distributed deployment models.
According to Data Bridge Market Research, The FTTx market is expected to reach USD 1.277 billion by 2027, witnessing market growth at a rate of 8.12% in the forecast period of 2020 to 2027.
FTTx stands for fiber to the x, which is described as various topologies from where optical fibers are delivered to customers based on its termination point. Earlier metal cables were used for covering long distances, but now, FTTx cables have been deployed to replace them.
“Rising demand from telecom industry, growing need of advanced multimedia services such as IPTV, HDT and many more, growing adoption of FTTH broadband connections and the rising demand for quadruple and triple-play services are the driving factors for the growth of global FTTx market” recent research from Data Bridge revealed. “High initial costs for setting up infrastructure as well as high concurrent costs for network upgrading are the restraining factors for the growth of global FTTx market.”
“Radisys is delivering best-in-class devices and leading software solutions that add value to the broadband ecosystem, elevating broadband service provider offerings and enhancing their data plans,” said Harris Razak, senior vice president of Broadband Access, Radisys. “Broadband World Forum 2021 is an exciting opportunity to showcase our portfolio that enables service providers to expand their fiber networks with world-class solutions and leverage an open device ecosystem to create new revenue streams.”
