Joint Release: Intraway & Casa Systems
August 1, 2018
Intraway and Casa Systems team up to demonstrate multi-level orchestration of virtual CCAP and remote PHY over a virtual network infrastructure. The collaboration advances and validates the CableLabs’ SDN/NFV Application Development Platform (SNAPS™) and OpenStack.
Miami, FL – At CableLabs Summer Conference 2018, Intraway and Casa Systems will showcase their collaborative working proof of concept that facilitates multi-level orchestration of a virtual Converged Cable Access Platform (vCCAP) and Remote PHY over a virtual network infrastructure.
Infrastructure elasticity has been a challenge for cable operators – where automatic provisioning and configuration of distributed virtual infrastructures and network elements is essential. With the Intraway/Casa Systems collaboration, the cable industry can now solve one of virtualization’s greatest challenges – NFV interoperability.
At next week’s event, Intraway and Casa Systems will demonstrate how Casa’s AxyomTM vCCAP operates in a true NFV environment by interfacing with Intraway’s Symphonica Orchestrator using native NETCONF / YANG APIs. Casa’s Axyom vCCAP enables highly flexible, standards-based virtualized DAA deployments with open APIs for service orchestration.
In addition to creating the pathway to NFV, Intraway’s multi-level orchestration of a virtual network infrastructure supports Distributed Access Architectures (DAA). The Intraway solution manages the complexity of the orchestration processes required to deploy the distributed platforms, supporting high-volumes of transactions efficiently with zero-touch service order management.
“Intraway and Casa Systems are demonstrating how multi-level orchestration simplifies decentralized platform installation and setup, as well as complex fulfillment flows needed to deploy and configure vCCAPs and RPDs. Basically, you can automate once and run anywhere,” shared Steve Marsh, Intraway’s CTO.
“Service providers are looking for ways to reduce network complexity and automate complex processes,” said Jerry Guo, CEO at Casa Systems. “This innovative proof of concept marks another milestone in Casa’s strategy to help service providers evolve their cable access networks and more quickly realize the benefits of distributed, virtualized infrastructures.”
