Software-Defined Broadband Network Gateway (SD-BNG)
An SDN- and NFV-based broadband edge platform, it provides essential and optional components traditionally provided by heterogeneous OSS software components, re-factored into an SDN controller platform. The SD-BNG consists of the Active Resource Controller (ARC) and Active Programmable Gateway (APG).
The ARC is an Integrated broadband access controller specifically designed for the broadband edge. It provides orchestration, activation, analytics, QoE and policy functionality.
The Active Programmable Gateway is the all-software programmable forwarding engine for the SD-BNG. It provides connectivity, access control, forwarding and QoS functionality.
