AT&T announced that a next-gen open dis-aggregated core routing platform has been deployed into their production environment. DriveNets‘ solution turns the physical network into a shared resource that can support multiple network services efficiently. This approach lowers the cost per bit and improving network profitability by creating a new economic model for the networking industry.
4 Tbps to 768 Tbps
DriveNets Network Cloud runs over scalable physical clusters ranging from a single box with 4 Tbps to a large cluster of 192 boxes with 768 Tbps, acting as a single router entity. This model allows network scaling flexibility, similar to cloud architectures. It also provides the ability to add new service offerings and scale them across the entire network. Ido Susan, CEO of DriveNets said,
“We’re thrilled about this opportunity to work with AT&T on their next-gen core network and proud of our engineers for meeting AT&T’s rigorous certification process that field-prove the quality of our solution. This announcement demonstrates to those who questioned the disaggregated network model that our Network Cloud is more scalable and cost-efficient than traditional hardware-centric routers. DriveNets is transforming the network in the same way that VMware transformed the compute and storage industry.”
