RtBrick has added support for a new class of open bare-metal switch that carriers can use to distribute a Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) closer to their subscribers. 

The UfiSpace S9510-28DC is a small form-factor switch that uses the latest Broadcom Qumran2A chipset, delivering 800Gbps of throughput and supporting thousands of broadband subscribers. “One of the many benefits of network disaggregation is that carriers can take advantage of new silicon innovation as it arrives in the market,” said Hannes Gredler, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at RtBrick. 

“The recently developed Q2A chips from Broadcom have already been built into platforms by vendors such as UfiSpace, and now we’ve integrated them with RtBrick software to create fully functioning telco routers. In this case, telcos can now locate their BNGs in smaller locations and beyond traditional central office environments.” 

The adoption of disaggregated networks has given operators the flexibility to mix and match hardware and software from different vendors and take full advantage of new innovative technology. 

“The UfiSpace S9510-28DC is a compact and powerful router that can be deployed outside of a standard central office environment, if required,” says Vincent Ho, CEO of UfiSpace. “Once again, RtBrick has shown that it can rapidly integrate its software with UfiSpace platforms to deliver new functionality to the carrier market within a short timeframe, thus allowing service providers faster access to the latest technologies, functions and features when building their next generation network.” 

RtBrick’s BNG software was recently selected by the TIP OpenBNG initiative, against criteria defined by five tier-1 carriers: BT, Deutsche Telekom, Telefonica, Telecom Italia Mobile and Vodafone, and has already been deployed in Deutsche Telekom’s production broadband network.
