Benu Networks leads open broadband network gateway project at TIP

Wednesday 16 September 2020 | 14:36 CET | News

Benu Networks announced it is leading open broadband network gateway development for the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) Open Optical & Packet Transport (OOPT) Project Group.

Traditional broadband network gateway (BNG) deployments make up one of the most significant costs in delivering fixed broadband services, Benu said. Historically, these were designed as proprietary black boxes, which required custom integration into network operator environments. Benu Networks is driving the move to open broadband network gateways, which decouple hardware and software, making it possible to be agile and scalable as market needs shift.

The open BNG project leans into the open disaggregated routers initiative, a cornerstone of the OOPT project. With an open, disaggregated BNG, operators will be able to decrease costs while increasing flexibility, revenue, and efficiency, the company said.

The TIP OOPT Open BNG initiative is aligned with Benu’s product strategy and BNG deployment, which prioritizes flexibility and versatility by empowering operators to layer services on top of the BNG, scale up or down as needed, and customize their solutions. To accomplish this, it's focusing on control plane/user plane disaggregation, BNG user plane pipeline based on virtualized and cloud-native software or different hardware options, including bare metal servers, leaf switch fabrics and smart NICs.
