SAN JOSE, CA — UTStarcom, a global telecommunications infrastructure provider, announced the launch of a new standalone entity, Virtual Gateway Labs (VGL).

The VGL platform supports multiple virtual machines (VMs) where each VM enables a dedicated service. As a result, instead of a number of dedicated CPEs installed at residential premises, the VBG platform can be used as a virtualized multi-tenant residential gateway that can host a mix of services from a single or even multiple service providers on a single compact device. It includes built in Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) building blocks such as soft-routers, Analog Terminal Adapter(s), OpenWRT, that can be connected or chained to create complex communication services using the VBG.

This approach brings multiple advantages to an operator and its customers, including simpler installation, operation and troubleshooting, lower power consumption, easy upgrade for instant support of new features and faster time-to-market for new innovative services and business models. VGL is a standalone company launched from UTStarcom’s virtual broadband gateway business, and is focusing on fiber to the home as well as the community and enterprise markets. The VBG platform also provides the separation of data and control plane required for efficient deployment of SDN solutions based on OpenFlow, providing a more dynamic and intelligent network. The device can be used both indoors and outdoors.
