Ribbon IP Wave rNOS Optimized for Multi-Access Edge, Aggregation and Transport

Telecoms services are becoming increasingly complex, demanding ever-increasing bandwidth and service performance guarantees. To keep pace with this exponential traffic growth and complexity a better backhaul transport network is required. This new backhaul transport must have the agility to provide the scalability, fast convergence, ease of configuration and service performance required to support the new services cost effectively.

Ribbon is addressing these market demands by developing a disaggregated, open, standards-based NOS portfolio, flexible enough to support “right-size” scaling supporting multiple hardware sizes. The NOS software is optimized to support multi-access edge platforms and larger platforms used for aggregation and transport.

Unified 5G xHaul

5G needs a new type of transport network, able to deliver higher capacity, to more cell sites while meeting more stringent synchronization requirements. This network has to meet the needs of providing xHaul connectivity between the RAN and the mobile core, it must also be able to provide this connectivity such that the end to end 5G network is able to guarantee SLAs for all the services it supports. Neptune is a key building block of Ribbon’s 5G xhaul solution. Providing the advanced IP transport capabilities required for 5G xHaul

Broadband Backhaul

High-bandwidth access networks are just a starting point on the road to high-speed broadband. A new aggregation and transport network is needed to complete the journey and make broadband for all a reality. With service-aware traffic steering and IP Optical integration, Neptune provides high-capacity next-generation aggregation and transport network required to bridge the gap between the high-bandwidth access pipes and the performance-dependent services these pipes need to transport.

SDH/SONET Modernization

SDH/SONET Modernization

Operators now have a need to retire their SDH/SONET networks and migrate onto a modern IP Transport network. Fortunately, with the capabilities Neptune provides, this is a good time to undertake this migration. We have well established, field proven, processes to make this migration seamless and risk-free and we have the technology to support the legacy SDH/SONET services on the IP Transport network in a manner, which is at least equivalent to, if not better than the legacy SDH/SONET network.

IP Wholesale Services

With new high-capacity access provided by 5G and Fiber deployment there is an ever increasing opportunity for wholesalers to lease Service Providers the backhaul they need for these access networks. Neptune’s multi-access edge, multiservice aggregation and ability to support multitenant solutions make it the ideal solution for these wholesalers.

Enterprise Private Networks

Enterprises support a vast array services, each with different performance requirements and delivered over diferent access networks . When an enterprise invests in building its own private communications network it wants a network which will support all its service current and legacy services and provide the agility to evolve to support future services. Neptune’s multi-access edge and multiservice aggregation provide enterprises with a converged platform which can meet all their service needs today and Neptune’s programmable Open IP provides enterprises with the confidence they have a communication platform which can evolve to meet their needs as they evolve.

Solutions for Critical Infrastructures

Neptune Utilites Graphic

Utilities

Utilities are looking to Digitize, Decarbonize and Decentralize their networks, the 3Ds. Secure collection and distribution of real-time network data to intelligent control systems is key to achieving this 3D evolution. This can only be achieved with a modernized communications network. Neptune has the right technology to provides risk–free migration to a modern communications network, tailored for the individual needs of each utility operator, it concurrently supports legacy mission-critical OT applications like teleprotection on the same end to end communications network as modern applications such as the digital substation.

Transportation

Transportation companies are in a period of rapid modernization. This modernization is based on the secure, flow of realtime data to and from an ever increasingly number of sensors, camera’s and users from across the network. This dataflow can only be achieved by use of a new communications network which is able to provide connectivity to multiple Field Area Networks using multiple different access technologies. Neptune provides multiservice solutions optimized to meet the modernization needs of transportation companies
