Announces SDN-Ready G.fast Management Stack
Ramat Gan, Israel, June 10, 2015 – Sckipio Technologies, the leader in G.fast announced the first G.fast Distribution Point Unit (DPU) that is SDN-controlled via the Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) and using the standard G.fast YANG data model; and with traffic managed via OpenFlow. The support for NETCONF YANG and OpenFlow is part of Sckipio’s new G.fast Management Stack, the first management stack designed from scratch to enable software-defined network (SDN) control on G.fast devices.
This state-of-the-art management platform and networking stack includes NETCONF YANG, CLI, SNMP, IGMP, DHCP, MSTP, Y.1731 and CFM support, and is designed to comply with all relevant Broadband Forum G.fast management specifications (WT-301, WT-318/355 drafts) as they are released.
“G.fast is the ultra-broadband access technology for the 21st century and demands a modern approach to device management,” said David Baum, co-founder and CEO of Sckipio. “Instead of simply supporting outdated, proprietary management approaches, Sckipio is giving OEMs and ultimately operators, complete control and management of G.fast equipment using open solutions.”
The Sckipio G.fast Management Stack is available now and runs on the PMC-Sierra WinPath family of network processors.
