Alpha Networks, Delta, Edgecore Networks, and UfiSpace are now part of the ecosystem.
ADVA (FSE: ADV) says it has paved the way for its Ensemble Harmony SDN/NFV platform to apply to white-box based disaggregated packet networking by adding relevant companies to its Ensemble Harmony Ecosystem. Alpha Networks, Delta, Edgecore Networks, and UfiSpace are now part of the ecosystem; each has white-box hardware platforms that are proven to interoperate with ADVA’s Ensemble Activator network operating system, according to ADVA.
Ensemble Activator, designed for use with bare-metal switches, is in trials with multiple mobile network operators, including Telefónica and Vodafone. ADVA sees Ensemble Activator as ideal for disaggregated cell site gateways (DCSGs), and the four new ecosystem members are active in the Telecom Infra Project’s DSCG project and related efforts (as is ADVA; see, for example, “Telecom Infra Project targets disaggregated cell site gateways,” “TIM Brazil, Vodafone announce suppliers for TIP Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway trials,” and “AT&T shows off Ufi Space white box cell site gateway router based on OCP specifications”).
