Massive increases in access bandwidth, driven by 5G and fiber rollout, and the increasing digitization and cloudification of services and the workplace is driving the need for all network operators to relook at their telecoms network.

  • Consumers are demanding increasingly sophisticated high-bandwidth services with defined performance characteristics such as cloud gaming, telemedicine and symmetrical home working.
  • Enterprises continue to move their applications to the cloud and are looking for the agility to introduce new applications rapidly and securely.
  • Critical Infrastructures such as utilities and transportation rapidly digitizing their networks to become “smart”, allowing them to monitor their resources much more effectively, provide consumers with a better service and meet increasingly stringent regulation and cyber-security needs.

At the same time, the competitive environment is becoming increasingly complex:

  • SPs, MNOs. MSOs, Webscale companies, and UTelcos are all looking to grow their share of the consumer market.
  • New entrants such as municipalities, utilities and transportation companies are looking to gain extra revenue by wholesaling capacity and services to the CSPs.

Enterprises are looking to build their own private networks, these can be totally self-build or run in a hybrid private-public model.  To address all these challenges, telecom network operators need to rethink their approach to network architectures, moving from a transport optimized to a services-driven approach. Equipping network operators with the agility to support increasingly complex services and business models. Under a services-driven approach, the network is optimized for need, based on its ability to meet the performance requirements of the services mix, without the need for over-engineering or over-building the network.

IP Wave provides MUSE SDN Orchestrator to provide practical automation, allowing network operators to migrate to continuous automation in stages, at a pace suited to their own operational needs. Muse optimizes networks to deliver services cost-effectively, extracting the maximum value from the network and supporting the rapid introduction of new services and new network technologies, as required. Powered by a carrier-grade cloud-native PaaS, Muse uses cognitive service-centric software to deliver real-time control over a programmable IP Optical network infrastructure. A suite of advanced service and network control applications empowers network operators to do more, through intuitive service creation and lifecycle management, proactive network assurance, network optimization, and automation. It guarantees the right tools are provided to meet any business model.

IP Wave uses the Neptune IP routing portfolio to support increasingly complex services, an evolving service mix, and the dynamic edge cloud environment. Advanced IP routing capabilities provide the dynamic, service-oriented, connectivity required in the distributed cloud era; and a super-converged multi-access edge allows multiple services to be supported from a single, common, IP routing platform. With 400G ZR+ pluggables, Neptune can operate in a single layer IP network using hop-by-hop provisioning, and in multilayer IP Optical networks by using multilayer optimization to integrate with an optical underlay. Neptune’s IP routing capabilities are built around a proven telco-grade NOS allowing various hardware/software disaggregation options to be utilized.

IP Wave uses the Apollo IP optical networking portfolio to provide OTN transport and OTN switching solutions that scale across access, metro, and long haul applications. Apollo is programmable to 1.2T per channel, with an ability to transport 400G over the ultra-long-haul; leveraging both capacity-optimized transceivers and power-cost optimized 400G ZR+ pluggable. Its open line system supports Ribbon and alien wavelengths on an equal basis and enables service providers to offer cutting-edge shared spectrum services.

Beyond hardware and software, Ribbon’s IP Wave Services portfolio supports you throughout all the phases of your network deployment.  We customize the services to meet business and operational needs and continuously adapt to new methods and operational efficiencies. IP Wave services provides a broad menu of services to make your solution complete, taking inputs from all stakeholders to implement a complete lifecycle plan. We provide joint development to integrate network technologies and operational tools into a customized ecosystem.
