The Broadband (BB) Suite, which is a product of ARGELA's subsidiary company NETSIA, delivers a virtualized and disaggregated SDN enabled fixed broadband access network management and control solution. While being based on the Open Network Foundation's (ONF) open-source SDN Enabled Broadband Access (SEBA) project, the NETSIA BB Suite also embraces the Broadband Forum (BBF), aligning with the specified interfaces and the CloudCO architecture. The product both supports white/gray-box Passive Optical Network (PON) devices certified by the ONF, as well as the BBF native ones.
