Solution Overview

The WWT Next Generation Central Office (NGCO) is built on an Intel/QCT/Red Hat reference architecture to deliver zero-touch provisioning of secure SD-WAN services (to enterprise branch locations) from the network edge. 

The NGCO project goal is to create a single rack solution for all applicable use cases (enterprise, mobility and residential services) rather than the per function NFV use case approach being adopted by many today. 

The solution is based on a model for offering managed or unmanaged services using enterprise vCPE paradigms (thick or thin) and includes QCT's NFV infrastructure design for scalability and efficiency; Red Hat's OpenStack Platform 13; a disaggregated network fabric powered by Cumulus Network's Linux network operating system; Cloudify's open source orchestration platform; and Fortinet's Fortigate Secure SD-WAN.
