VOLTHA is an open source project for PON broadband access equipment, supporting the principle of multi-vendor, disaggregated, “any broadband access as a service” for the Central Office. SEBA is a Reference Design (RD) - an architecture that supports a multitude of virtualized access technologies at the edge of the carrier network, including PON, G-PON, G.Fast, and eventually DOCSIS and more. SEBA supports both residential access and wireless backhaul and is optimized such that traffic can run ‘fastpath’ straight through to the backbone without requiring VNF processing on a server. It's built with Kubernetes, high speed, and operationalized with FCAPS and OSS Integration. It serves as the foundational architecture for VOLTHA.
SEBA/VOLTHA is actively in use by Leading Carriers
