Open, Disaggregated and Virtualized Access Solutions

Access Solutions is a strategic business unit at STL that entirely focuses on products and solutions that adhere to open networking principles to address 5G wireless and last-mile fixed access (FTTx). In a short span of two years, this business unit has well progressed on its vision of being the open networking leader in fiber broadband and 5G space.

We are well-positioned to offer our customers an end-to-end solution for both FTTx and wireless 4G and 5G across enterprise and consumer segments. All our offerings are open source based, curated, matured, and customized to each customer’s requirements. Our offerings portfolio broadly consists of:

Programmable
Programmable FTTx
We offer pFTTx which can virtualize last mile network to enable flexible gigabit broadband. pFTTx is an SDN-NFV, micro-services oriented, cloud-based network solution that radically elevates the network service provider’s business model.

In the wired connectivity realm, we offer a platform (Programmable FTTx) that is entirely virtualized OLT [optical line termination] and ONT [optical network terminal] software stack integrated with white box solutions, to support fiber to the home or enterprise. This solution is open source compliant and now in active trials with Tier 1 operators across the globe.

On the wireless side, we have strategically invested and partnered with leading companies in the open networking domain to offer COTS [commercial off-the-shelf] based open and virtualized RAN solutions, that can host both 4G and 5G concurrently. To integrate these solutions on a cloud-centric platform we also offer an O-RAN compliant RAN Intelligent Controller. Furthermore, we have uniquely tapped into the burgeoning start-up ecosystem to conceptualize, design, and manufacture 5G radios entirely indigenously. With our recent product launches around indoor small cells, multiband radio, Wi-Fi 6 access points, we are well poised to deliver cutting-edge wireless, open and programmable solutions to telcos and network players across the world.

Alliances with open communities for developing cloud- native 5G and FTTx solutions

ORAN
ORAN is an open source group established to define requirements and help build a supply chain eco-system to evolve radio access networks around the world.

STL is working very closely with ORAN to build near real time 5G controllers. With our Programmable, Open, Disaggregated Solution (PODS), we are contributing our capabilities and expertise to build future RANs on the foundation of virtualised network elements, white-box hardware, open and standardised interfaces. Once developed, our near-real time controller will help the Alliance operators accelerate the development and commercialisation of 5G networks globally.
ONF
ONF is a pioneer in open source domain that aims at promoting networking through software-defined networking and standardizing the Open-Flow protocol and related technologies.

STL has been collaborating continuously in workgroups like VOLTHA (Virtual OLT Hardware Abstraction), SEBA (Software enabled broadband access) and ONOS (Open Network Operating System) for productization and commercialization of these open platforms.
Telecom Infra
TIP is an engineering-focused, collaborative group for building and deploying global telecom network infrastructure, with the goal of enabling global access for all.

STL has been working very closely to develop an optical transport controller to manage and control Voyager and Cassini platforms developed by TIP members.
ONAP
ONAP is an open source group that provides a comprehensive platform for real-time, policy-driven orchestration and automation of physical and virtual network functions. It will enable software, network, IT and cloud providers and developers to rapidly automate new services and support complete lifecycle management.

STL has been contributing to ONAP in fields of orchestration and cloud management in this domain.
