Update on Project Groups

The Open Optical Packet Transport (OOPT) project group continues to advance technologies towards commercial availability. Voyager, an industry-first open and disaggregated transport device, is now generally available from ADVA Optical, thanks to a collaboration between multiple technology partners. The success of the collaboration model served as a base for a new sub-group: Disaggregated Cell Site Gateways, where four tier-1 operators (Vodafone, Telefónica, Orange, and TIM Brazil) have worked together to define their technical needs for 5G cell site routers, and with the initial two partners, ADVA Optical and Edgecore Networks, announcing their commitment to produce “Odyssey-DCSG”, the first implementation of technology that meets those needs.
