SmartRG First to Deliver Open CPE Solutions

October 23, 2019 GMT

BERLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 23, 2019--

SmartRG, an ADTRAN company, (NASDAQ:ADTN), the leading provider of next-generation open networking and subscriber experience solutions, today unveiled SmartOS 11, a landmark achievement which realizes the principles and best practices established by the prplWrt project. Building on SmartOS’ silicon-agnostic heritage, SmartOS 11 will be immediately available on SmartRG devices on three different chipsets.

prplWrt, hosted by the prpl Foundation, is focused on establishing an open-source, enterprise-grade software framework using OpenWrt to provide a common baseline of APIs for a high degree of customization and differentiation without sacrificing security or compatibility. The framework will power the next generation of Wi-Fi routers and gateways with secure, robust software and tools for testing, professional certification and continuous feature development.

“We are committed to the work with the prpl Foundation, helping accelerate open and scalable standards, technology and networks,” ADTRAN Subscriber Solutions & Experience CTO David La Cagnina said. “By integrating the prplWrt framework into SmartOS 11, we are leading the industry in offering truly open solutions with carrier-grade infrastructure and broad industry support.”

With SmartOS 11’s fully open-source approach, ADTRAN democratizes service provider CPE customization to a level once only reserved for multinational Tier 1 service providers. Additionally, an open ecosystem of 3 rd party services allows tailoring of the subscriber’s experience to any customer segment. These and other new features facilitate differentiation and create competitive opportunities as service providers look to add innovative revenue-generating services to their offerings.

SmartRG will lend its expertise on the value and goals of prplWrt in an educational session at prpl Summit 2019 this week in Berlin. David LaCagnina will present on Thursday, October 24, at 9:30am CEST.
