The DriveNets distributed disaggregated networking model combined with the One Touch solution from KGPCo provide a seamless telco-grade operational model and substantial savings over traditional IP network architectures
TEL AVIV, Israel, Feb. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DriveNets, the networking software company and KGPCo, the longest serving CSP networking system integrator today announced that they are joining forces to accelerate the deployment of disaggregated networks at Tier-1 service providers worldwide. The combination of DriveNets Network Cloud software running over standard white boxes and KGPCo's One Touch Solution provides the highest scale carrier-grade disaggregated network solution on the market with the greatest operational efficiency. It addresses service providers' need for complete life-cycle management of the disaggregated network model - from white box preparation, through installation, provisioning and support. This partnership offers the best of both networking models - an open network infrastructure with greater choice than ever before, together with faster and more efficient deployment than the traditional single-vendor model.
According to a market study conducted by Heavy Reading, nearly half of telecom operators predict their companies will radically change their IP Networks in the next three years, while disaggregation of hardware and software is gaining momentum and is already publicly endorsed by leading operators such as AT&T, Telefonica and Rakuten Mobile. Open networking and the transition to standard white boxes means that service providers can choose their vendors to build a best-of-breed solution (silicon, hardware and software) and scale their networks efficiently. The potential for offering further services and increasing profitability for service providers is enormous as shown by the hyperscalers. However, this means engaging with a totally new operational model. The DriveNets and KGPCo partnership delivers proven and dependable operational life-cycle management that is already engaged by several Tier-1 service providers.
