AT&T는 가상화 기반 10Gbps XGS-PON 시험 완료
XGS-PON 시스템을 통하여 다중 기가인터넷 트래픽과 DirecTV NOW Video 테스트
가상화된 BNG(Broadband Network Gateway) 기능을 사용하여 가입자 관리
가상화는 OSAM-HA(Open Source Access Manager Hardware Abstraction) 활용
XGS-PON은 상하향 10G/10G를 지원하며, 기존 GPON과 단일 광코어에서 공존 가능
AT&T (NYSE:T) recently trialed a 10 Gbps XGS-PON virtualized network using Open Source Access Manager Hardware Abstraction (OSAM-HA) software in Atlanta and Dallas. OSAM-HA is formerly VOLTHA.
XGS-PON is a fixed wavelength symmetrical 10 Gbps passive optical network (PON) technology. AT&T plans to use it to virtualize access functions within the last-mile access network.
For the technology to work within existing GPON networks, the telco used a coexistence element. The trials indicated that GPON and XGS wavelengths could both exist across a single fiber.
"Our network is constantly evolving. We'll continue to execute our software-based network strategy to technologies like 5G, virtualized RAN, and G.fast over time. Ultimately, instead of deploying islands of technology that have SDN control, we want to orchestrate the entire end-to-end network through ONAP," said Eddy Barker, assistant vice president, Access Architecture and Design, AT&T.
ONAP (Open Network Automation Platform) is AT&T's virtual access project within the Linux Foundation and will use the first iteration of OSAM-HA technology.
OSAM is a vendor-agnostic operational suite for managing consumer and business broadband access network elements and capabilities, separate from vendor-specific access element management systems (EMS).
