CORD Use Cases

CORD™ is an open source platform taking the telecom industry by storm, so much so that HeavyReading recently predicted that fully 40% of all subscribers will be running on CORD within 5 years. ONOS is a critical part of the CORD platform and acts as the SDN fabric controller.

SDN Network Control

Turk Telecom ran a pilot at 3 Turkish government institutions where ONOS was configured for multi-layer security at the user access, data, control and application layers. Netsia’s (formerly Argela) ONOS deployment provides DDoS protection, intrusion detection, malware protection and network access protection.

RAN Slicing

Turk Telecom and Netsia has developed an ONOS application that allows for the dynamic programmability of base stations towards RAN Slicing. Coined ProgRAN, the ONOS-based RAN slicing solution has been field trialed on Turk Telekom’s live LTE-A network. ProgRAN is currently in the process of going through Lab Trials in 4 additional Service Providers around the globe.

Software Defined Wire-line access over OLT

AT&T, Telefonica, DT and NTT are using some or all of these ONOS applications (AAA, DHCP-L2-Relay and virtual-OLT). The AAA app acts as the Authenticator for Supplicants like Remote Gateways located in residential subscribers' homes. The next step for authenticated subscriber RG's is to obtain an IP address from an upstream DHCP server and this is provided by the DHCP-L2-Relay app. And the virtual-OLT app is responsible for assigning and dynamically programming customer (C) and service (S) VLAN tags for authenticated subscribers.
