RtBrick Partners with Radisys to Deliver Turnkey Disaggregated IP Networks

Routing pioneer integrates its open software with leader in open telecom solutions and services

Business Wire   

October 24 2023, Fremont, California – RtBrick today announced that it is partnering with Radisys® Corporation to offer telcos solutions to build IP networks based on open, disaggregated, ‘cloud-native’ architecture. 

The partnership will enable operators to adopt RtBrick’s disaggregated IP routing software as part of an end-to-end integrated networking solution from Radisys that includes core and access technologies, support and OSS/BSS integration. The Radisys Connect Modular Broadband software solution is based on open, disaggregated and cloud-native components.

Network disaggregation allows operators to benefit from a new generation of open ‘bare-metal’ hardware, breaking the cycle of vendor lock-in imposed by many traditional manufacturers and lowering costs. Software from RtBrick transforms these white-box switches into carrier-grade MPLS routers. This initial use-case contains RtBrick’s Broadband Network Gateway (BNG), the specialist router used to offer broadband internet services and network aggregation. 

“Changing to a disaggregated network requires an investment in new skillsets and draws on limited IT resources,” said Pravin S Bhandarkar, CEO and founder at RtBrick. “Radisys can deliver a turnkey integrated solution that will give operators a simpler way of realising the benefits of network disaggregation.” 

The solution can be scaled by adding more open hardware as needed, in incremental steps, whether the aim is to add more subscribers or more throughput. 

“Partnering with RtBrick will allow Radisys to offer an integrated and complete disaggregated broadband solution to our customers. A disaggregated network from a diverse and open ecosystem gives operators the flexibility to mix and match hardware and software as needed,” said Prakash Siva, Head of Technology and Architecture at Radisys. “In addition to reducing CapEx costs, this new cloud-native operating model also enables Zero-Touch-Provisioning and automation using open REST-based APIs, to optimize OpEx costs.” 

The new combined solution is available today from Radisys.
