Netomnia to test STL’s pFTTx software solution

STL announced that it will test its programmable FTTx (pFTTx) software solution with Netomnia for their live networks in the UK.
STL and Netomnia collaborate to test programmable FTTx solution
STL is bringing software-defined networking to fibre to the home, cell sites and business networks through pFTTx. STL’s pFTTx is a software-defined, open, and disaggregated Passive Optical Network (PON) solution for fibre network operators.

STL and Netomnia have recently partnered for Optical Fibre deployment and are now collaborating to incorporate programmability into large-scale FTTx networks. This trial will pave the way for the adoption of advanced software-defined architectures for FTTx in the UK.

Jeremy Chelot, CEO of Netomnia, said: “The promise of fibre broadband will be realised when service providers implement advanced architectures that software-ise the fibre networks. This trial with STL will be significant as we will jointly demonstrate pFTTx in a live scenario.”

Chris Rice, CEO, Access Solutions, STL, said: “Our solution is intended to help them achieve accelerated network rollout with faster deployment, provisioning and enhanced network performance.”
