The communication service provider market is undergoing considerable change as it evolves to address increased access bandwidth requirements on both the fixed and the wireless access networks, while also maintaining tight controls on cost.
Carriers are looking more and more toward open alternatives to the closed ecosystem of network equipment providers to help improve their price performance and service agility.
Carrier Open Infrastructure (COI) leverages our more than 20 years of experience in the service provider market as a reseller and integrator, particularly open source solutions, to deliver an open source, white box solution with a services and integration package that meets the safety and security requirements of legacy vendors.
COI gives service providers a complete solution with increased agility and faster time to market in the most cost effective manner available.

The true power of SEBA is that it enables you to use different technologies, eg. GPON, XGS-PON and NG-PON2, from different vendors without changes to your operational environment. Learn more about SEBA here.
We have a range of GPON, EPON and XGS_PON ONUs in both micro appliance and SFP form factors.
To deliver triple-play services to the subscriber in FTTx applications, the openONU SFU (Single Family Unit) XG-99K incorporates interoperability and cost-efficiency.
Equipped with I
TU-T G.9807 compliant 10G Downstream and 10G Upstream XGS-PON interface, XG-99K supports the full Triple Play of services including voice, video, and high speed internet access service.
Compliant with standard OMCI definition, XG-99K is manageable at remote side and supports the full range FCAPS functions including supervision, monitoring and maintenance.
The openONU-plugin (XG-99S) is a standard SFP+ form factor, which can easily replace the Ethernet SFP+ module existing in Ethernet gateway, switch, router or backhaul equipment etc.
Equipped with ITU-T G.9807 compliant XGS-PON interface, XG-99S incorporates interoperability, key customers’ specific requirements and cost-efficiency. By integrating XGS PON MAC and standard compliant OMCI stack, XG-99S provides all XGS PON functionalities and full range FCAPS management features including supervision, monitoring and maintenance.
The whitebox XGS-PON openOLT, CO-OLT24XG-PON, is a powerful next generation 1RU PON access platform designed for remote terminal (RT) and/or central office (CO) applications.
It is a programmable system with FPGA-based 10G PON MAC and a high performance NPU, focused on vOLTHA and SEBA in a R-CORD infrastructure deployment. It supports symmetric 24 X 10Gbps XGS PON access connectivity in downlink and 6 X 100Gbps in uplink. This is an OCP and OpenCORD compatible system.
We have a complete range of optics for both PON and Networking environments.
In the PON environment we support XFP based OLT optics for GPON, XGS-PON and E-PON.
In the networking environments we support SFP, SFP+, QSFP, QSFP28, QSFP DD and AOC form factors. In a range of speeds from 10G, 25G, 40G, 100G, 200G and 400G.
We have relationships with a number of Asian manufacturers with product development expertise. If you need electronic device developed we can assist from prototype through mass production. All with extremely high quality and low cost, due to our lights out manufacturing facilities in China and Malaysia.
Experts weigh in on Carrier Open Infrastructure from CBTS and the impact it's having on the industry.
“CBTS said its goal is to help carriers leverage open source virtual networking functions (VNFs) and common, off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware to grow revenue as broadband speeds increase and average revenue per-subscriber (ARPU) declines. The COI architecture leverages the ONF’s Central Office Redefined as a data center (CORD) framework for enabling gigabit access over copper, fiber and wireless.” Jim Carroll Network Digest >> Read the article
“The platforms will use an FPGA-based approach to enable flexibility and futureproofing. The OLT should be available for testing by the end of this month. CBTS will tie the hardware together with software based on ONF specifications, including Virtual OLT High and SDN Enable Software, an Exemplar Platform. … ONF-friendly software platforms will enable CBTS to work within a multivendor, multi-technology environment with universal software control and orchestration.” Stephen Hardy Lightwave >> Read the article
“The CBTS white box uses Linux and works with two key pieces of software developed by the ONF. These include SEBA, which CBTS … describes as a “common management instance across multiple technologies and vendors” and VOLTHA, which, according to the ONF, is a “hardware abstraction for broadband access equipment” for the central office that provides a high level of standardization among vendors.” Joan Engebretson Telecompetitor

“COI is multiaccess architecture that works across copper, fiber and wireless at gigabit speeds. It can be used by carriers that have fixed or wireless networks, including cable, wireline and mobile operators. In addition to developing the architecture and the optical networking components, CBTS is providing support services, help desk, integration, advanced replacement, and field services for its COI customers.” Mike Robuck Fierce Telecom >> Read the article
