Volta Networks today announced a partnership with Delta Electronics, a global open networking provider, that enables Volta’s cloud-native virtual routing software to run on Delta’s open networking switches, including AGCV208S. These combined technologies are designed for telecom, mobile and other network operators that need simplified deployments, lower TCO, and greater scalability.
Reducing the total cost of ownership
The Volta Elastic Virtual Routing Engine (VEVRE) is a virtual routing platform that reduces the total cost of ownership by 90% compared to legacy routers, delivers unprecedented scale with up to 255 virtual routers per switch as well as support for industry-standard routing protocols and carrier automation.
Delta provides open network switches based on Broadcom’s DNX and XGS ASIC series, which greatly reshape carriers’ CAPEX and OPEX structure. Delta recently introduced the AGCV208S, a Qumran AX ASIC-based platform selected by TIP’s Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway (DCSG) project for further trials.
Lightweight and efficient software agent
Volta’s lightweight and efficient software agent integrates seamlessly with Delta switches, minimizing processing overhead while supporting up to 255 virtual routers per switch. This maximizes network operators’ design and scalability for DCSG or other network applications.
“Delta is dedicated to the open networking community and developing technologies that accelerate developments in CSP applications on a global basis,” said Jeff Chen, GM of Delta Network Infrastructures Business Unit at Delta. “Partnering with Volta Networks to run their cloud-native virtual routing software on our open network switches will give network operators a way to quickly and cost-effectively deploy cloud-based routing in order to deliver a new generation of mobile- and network-based applications.”
