CORD

Many of the world’s largest service providers are beginning to reap the benefits of a new architecture: central office re-architectured as a data center (CORD). This architecture replaces hardware-specific central office equipment with a flexible high-performance data center fabric; applications are abstracted and defined on the software level. This solution includes a 100G spine and 10G leaves, with an optional vOLT add-on for next-gen FTTx service.

Benefits of Central Office Re-architectured as a Data Center

Services are defined at the software layer – no more application-specific hardware— so new services can be provisioned faster.

The spine-and-leaf structure makes it faster and easier to add more network capacity than traditional modular chassis.

Accelerate the speed of deployment and eliminate the risk of costly human error.

Future-proof your network by installing a solution that will easily support network virtualization, whenever you’re ready to deploy.
