Iskratel Announces “Amphibian” GPON OLT

  • Iskratel
KRANJ, SLOVENIA — With the launch of Iskratel's “amphibian” GPON OLT, operators looking to seamlessly upgrade their networks to virtualized, cloud-based infrastructures finally have the right tools at their disposal.

Iskratel announced two new edge-computing solutions:

Dual-Nature OLT
Building on its SI3000 Lumia G16 compact GPON Optical Line Terminal (OLT), Iskratel’s new dual-nature OLT can operate as a traditional integrated OLT but also provides a disaggregated white-box solution, based on virtual OLT hardware abstraction (vOLTHA) principles.

This transforms the Lumia G16 into a fully virtualized, CORD-compliant physical OLT with virtual OLT software running in the cloud via a simple software upgrade, eliminating the need for hardware upgrades when virtualizing the central office and easing cloudification of the edge.

"We are extremely proud to be the first solutions provider to introduce a product that allows operators to avoid an entire investment cycle when transforming their networks towards software-defined, next-generation access,” said Janez Öri, director of strategy and business development at Iskratel. “Furthermore, our virtualized GPON solution facilitates a cost-effective upgrade of the existing infrastructure, even before operators move on to securely introducing a fully virtualized NGPON architecture.”

Cloud-Services Platform (CSP)
Iskratel also announced the new version of its cloud-services platform (CSP) that adds centralized identity management and edge computing to improve multi-cloud orchestration and management, including all core and edge data center locations. As a result, operators can deliver a higher, guaranteed quality of service to meet stringent service-level agreements, automate security policies in a distributed cloud, and enable zero-touch provisioning of new services.

"This innovative improvement to our CSP simplifies network expansion, allowing operators to seamlessly introduce new edge locations while controlling costs by automating key processes,” said Öri. “This is particularly beneficial in fast-growing, heterogeneous networks that require management of hundreds, or even thousands of edge locations.”
