iPhotonix Completes Integration with NeoNova

  • NeoNova
  • Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP)
  • iPhotonix
RICHARDSON, TX — iPhotonix, a provider of network functions virtualization (NFV), cloud transformation and fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) technologies, announced that its iVolve ONT solutions have been fully integrated with NeoNova, a wholly-owned subsidiary of NRTC. The iVolve platform supports NeoNova’s network management service offerings and solutions. NeoNova’s TR-069-compatible ACS platform lets customers and their support teams see past customer premises equipment (CPE), providing such benefits to them and their subscribers as:

  • more efficient and effective troubleshooting

  • remote provisioning and management

  • tiered service setup and management


"We're excited to integrate with a major supplier like iPhotonix,” comments Jay Pitzer, NeoNova’s director of product management. “Their superior equipment, coupled with our highly-effective Modem Management TR-069 solution, gives our customers a significant opportunity to reduce truck rolls and increase subscriber satisfaction."

iPhotonix’s iVolve ONT solution has unique form factor and installation capabilities, such as for multiple area installations and outdoor configurations. The GPON/AE ONTs incorporate a highly scalable, integrated networking approach using the most simplified architecture that leverages GPON’s inherent reach and passive nature.

The iVolve platform also has multiple high-speed LAN functions including Bridging, Routing, Filtering, and NATP. iPhotonix supports MoCA 2.0 for transporting data over existing coaxial cable, offering more cost-effective solutions for service providers who deliver high-speed data, IPTV, video on demand (VoD), and voice over IP (VoIP).

iPhotonix uCPE & SD-WAN Solutions to be Included in the Amdocs NFV Ecosystem

iPhotonix also announced that its advanced universal customer premise equipment and SD-WAN technology were included in the Amdocs Network Function Virtualization (NFV) ecosystem that is powered by Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP). Amdocs’ NFV Powered by ONAP portfolio brings software that lets service providers design, create, orchestrate, and operate services that are based on virtual network functions (VNFs).

“We are excited to be included in Amdocs’ initiative at the forefront of network transformation. The shift to this type of software based offering will provided carriers and enterprises great benefits in the immediate term,” said Joel Futterman, CTO of iPhotonix.

Amdocs, a software and services provider to communications and media companies, has provided operational support systems and business support systems (OSS/BSS) to service providers for decades. Amdocs is expanding its expertise regarding physical networks to include virtual network functions.

As the carriers and enterprises move from static appliance-based networks to software based, elastic networks, they will be able to provide services and capacity on actual demand or based on predictive traffic patterns. Instead of building networks for high peak periods, networks will be set up dynamically to provide better services at lower price points and with maximum automation.

For the virtual service offering, Amdocs has created a partner ecosystem of vendors that provide more than 80 VNFs. These VNFs are easily plumbed into service provider networks, integrated with existing operational and business support systems and can be deployed either locally or in the public cloud. In addition to the uCPE and SD-WAN solutions of iPhotonix, examples of other third-party VNFs include applications related to security and IMS for VoLTE.

“This is a continuation of our efforts to advance networks and emerging IP technologies by integrating sophisticated SDN/NFV tools that will change the market as we know it today” concluded Mr. Futterman.
