We’ve just spent two weeks discussing the Broadband Forum’s Cloud Central Office (CloudCO), but now it’s time to return to the topic of CORD – Central Office Rearchitected as Datacenter. Yes, it does seem like perhaps I’ve lost my mind, but there is much to talk about: standardization, implementation, and trial deployments of next-generation central office architectures. The good news is that many of the people and companies working on the open source CORD project are also working on the CloudCO standards. Convergence and alignment seem likely.
Next week I will be participating in a SDxCentral webinar regarding CORD, along with colleagues from Radisys and Doyle Research.

Service providers are upgrading their access networks to take advantage of new NG-PON2 and Gfasttechnologies, speed up delivery of cloud applications, and improve the customer experience. This makes it a great time to learn how virtualization of the access network can enable operators to deliver new services more rapidly and reduce the complexity of operations.
Join us to understand the key benefits of Software Defined Access architectures and the challenges that Calix and Radisys can help you overcome. If you miss the live event, please register anyway. SDxCentral will let you know how to watch the on-demand recording.
