SAN JOSE, CA – 23 Sep, 2015 – UTStarcom (NASDAQ:UTSI), a global telecommunications infrastructure provider, announced the launch of a new standalone entity, Virtual Gateway Labs (VGL), on June 30th, 2015.
The pace of technological innovation is consistently accelerating in today’s world. There is a growing abundance of home applications and appliances that are becoming more sophisticated than ever. Furthermore, as customers become more demanding and require more technology, network operators and service providers look to quickly improve operational efficiency for the next generation deployment of residential broadband networks that will enable fast introduction of new services, while reducing complexity and cost of deployment and operation. The Virtual Broadband Gateway (VBG) provides a fresh answer to these requirements with its breakthrough architecture, which offers unprecedented operational flexibility.
This platform supports multiple Virtual Machines (VMs) where each VM enables a dedicated service. As a result, instead of a number of dedicated CPEs installed at residential premises, the VBG platform can be used as a virtualized multi-tenant residential gateway that can host a mix of services from a single or even multiple service providers on a single compact device. It includes built in Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) building blocks such as soft-routers, Analog Terminal Adapter(s), OpenWRT, that can be connected or chained to create complex communication services using the VBG. This approach brings multiple advantages to an operator and its customers, such as: simpler installation; operation and troubleshooting; lower power consumption; easy upgrade for instant support of new features; and faster time-to-market for new innovative services and business models. VGL is a standalone company launched from UTStarcom’s virtual broadband gateway business, and is focusing on Fiber to the Home as well as the Community and Enterprise markets.
Mr. Tim Ti, CEO of VGL, stated, “We are very excited to have this opportunity to launch the VGL startup, and we look forward to delivering innovative products and cutting edge service to the market.
Moreover, the VBG platform provides the separation of data and control plane required for efficient deployment of SDN solutions based on OpenFlow*, providing a more dynamic and intelligent network. The device can be used both indoors and outdoors.
“We are eager to sell products that are being demanded by the Open Access market,” says Mr. Aman Sehgal, VGL’s VP of Sales and GM of Global Operations. “Our mission for the rest of 2015 and 2016 is to make our current partners successful.”
