Volta Networks has transformed the router with the first cloud-based control plane, providing unprecedented scale in processing and virtual routing. VEVRE can run on any public, private or hybrid cloud and works with abroad range of open networking devices such as white box switches. This combination of a disaggregated and elastic control plane with open networking devices reduces cost by an order of magnitude compared to legacy routers.
Reduces TCO by 90%
Volta allows network operators to take full advantage of low-cost white box switches while providing the equivalent cost reduction by deploying the control plane in the cloud. Customers will see TCO savings of up to 10x when compared with legacy routing platforms.
Built for Carrier Automation
Volta’s cloud-based APIs provide the perfect connection point to MANO systems. With full support for leading standards including NETCONF and YANG, we are built for carrier automation.
The Elastic Cloud
As a native cloud application, Volta takes full advantage of the elastic nature of the cloud and ensures that resources are used e‑ciently regardless of the scope of the deployment. By building on cloud native technologies, we give the operator the means to scale out instead of being forced to scale up with more expensive routers.
Volta supports a wide range of routing and transport protocols. Our routing suite is based on the Free Range Routing open source suite and has demonstrated interoperability. Volta is a contributor to the FRR community.
Scales Virtual Routing
The VEVRE is used to create Virtual Routers (VR) which consist of one VRP and physical or virtual ports on a device running a vAgent. We lead the industry with up to 255 VRs on a single device, allowing network operators complete exibility when connecting applications, services, customers or networks.
The Volta Agent runs on the switch and provides for local autonomous control. We have led for a patent on the process we use to compress the instructions (the Forwarding Information Base or FIB) the switch needs. This unique technology ensures the switch will operate at peak performance.
