Disaggregated networking first became prevalent in large data centers. Hugely scalable chipsets in white box hardware enabled open networking and the separation of hardware and software in telecom networks. Cloud-based gaming, augmented reality, virtual reality, and the IoT are accelerating the adoption of disaggregated networking solutions.
Using disaggregated systems for network peering provides several advantages to carriers, including cost savings of up to 50% over traditional solutions. In addition to other performance improvements carriers gain with network peering applications, end users also benefit from improved network performance.
Disaggregated networking has now become a reality in large service provider networks. You can leverage a disaggregated network operating system to drive innovation in your network and add additional revenue through new network-based services.
The IP router is a critical component in the scalability of the internet. A new Network Operating System architecture is needed, one that mimics the reliability and security mechanisms developed by cloud computing platforms. Disaggregated Networking has adopted cloud technologies, therefore it is the ideal solution to scale the internet even more.
The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted how difficult it is for telecom networks to adapt to sudden traffic increases. Although this issue is not new, the solution can be found when adopting open networking technologies.
