UfiSpace Awarded Telecom Infra Project Requirements Compliant Ribbon for its Distributed Disaggregated Backbone Router

New Taipei, Taiwan, April, 12, 2022  -- UfiSpace, the leading provider of open and disaggregated transport network solutions, has been awarded a Telecom Infra Project Requirements Compliant Ribbon for its Distributed Disaggregated Backbone Router (DDBR) solutions.

TIP is a global community of companies and organizations that are driving open infrastructure solutions to advance global connectivity. As part of that effort, leading operators and active participants of the Open Optical Packet & Transport (OOPT) Disaggregated Open Router (DOR) subgroup have led the initiative and defined the technical requirements for the DDBR. DDBR, is an initiative focused on building disaggregated and scalable routers that operators can use in their IP backbone networks as P, PE and Peering devices.

DDBR allows innovative service models by providing flexible scaling and significant opex and capex reductions through software and hardware disaggregation. After conducting a detailed analysis of technology supplier responses, the subgroup awarded the TIP Requirements Compliant Ribbon to UfiSpace, paving the way for its solutions to be listed on TIP Exchange.

For the DDBR compliance evaluation UfiSpace has proposed the S9700-Series of disaggregated open routers, S9700-53DX (high density 100G core router), S9700-23D (low density 400G core router), S9710-76D (high density 400G core router), and S9705-48D (400G fabric switch) that were analyzed along with other networking suppliers. These UfiSpace routers were implemented based on the DDBR requirements, which define a fabric white box acting as the backplane and packet forwarder white box acting as line cards.

"UfiSpace is a key member of the OOPT community. The company continuously delivered innovative hardware to various workgroups in TIP, effectively becoming an enabler of disaggregated solutions,"says Diego Marí Moretón, Manager, connectivity technologies at Meta and technical lead of the Open Optical & Packet Transport project group. "UfiSpace S9700 series aggregation routers fulfil the operator  requirements for DDBR hardware and fully deserve the requirements compliat ribbon."

"We are humbled to receive another TIP compliance ribbon and will continue our work on DDBR for testing, validation, and looking forward to commercial trials," says Vincent Ho, CEO at UfiSpace. "Our focus will be on working with CSPs to help modernize their networks, making them more efficient, with increased capacity, and enabling them to dynamically deploy needed service models. The DDBR is a solid approach to build futureproof networks, and we are glad it is being validated and adopted by leading telecom operators."
