Calix, Radisys to deliver first deployment ready residential CORD platform

Radisys Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), the services acceleration company, and Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX), a world leader in Subscriber Driven Intelligent Access, have delivered an end-to-end cloud edge solution using commercially available systems and software compliant with the Residential Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter (Residential CORD or R-CORD) architecture, advancing SDN, NFV, and the cloud model into the service provider access network, the companies said.

This integrated turnkey access solution for R-CORD combines the CORD open software and hardware building blocks with Radisys´ OCP-based DCEngine platform and the carrier-grade Calix AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System, featuring the recently announced AXOS OFx Connector with the open source vOLT-HA integration software as well as 10G PON converged fiber access (NG-PON2 and XGS-PON).

By deploying the converged cloud edge solution in their last mile network, service providers can accelerate new service introduction while maintaining the highest quality of experience for their subscribers.

Trials of the R-CORD solution running on Radisys´ OCP-based DCEngine hyperscale platform integrated with the Calix AXOS E9-2 Intelligent Edge System are currently underway with multiple tier-one service providers.

As part of the field trials, Calix is providing the physical optical termination system, while the Radisys DCEngine 16U Integrated Rack, based on the OCP-ACCEPTED CG-OpenRack-19 specification, provides a multi-rack level network functions virtualization (NFVi) and container-based infrastructure necessary for hosting thousands of virtualized network functions (VNFs) and applications under open software-defined networking control.

Radisys helps communications and content providers, and their strategic partners, create new revenue streams and drive cost out of their services delivery infrastructure. Radisys´ hyperscale software-defined infrastructure, service aware traffic distribution platforms, real-time media processing engines and wireless access technologies enable its customers to maximize, virtualize and monetize their networks.
