The telco Central Office has become a fertile ground for open innovation and for good reason. The original work done by the ONF with the CORD project has been widely adopted by several tier-1 operators. In 2018 it has been refined into a multi-operator ONF reference design SDN Enabled Broadband Access (SEBA).

More recently, other industry organizations have also started projects around specifying SDN, NFV and cloud-based Central Office architectures. BBF's CloudCO and OPNFV's vCO are two such examples.

In this talk Aseem will compare and contrast these options available to operators and system integrators, and highlight the relationships between these activities. Aseem will suggest appropriate choices depending on the operator's needs. Some key enabling technologies for each platform will be discussed such as VOLTHA and BAA, and operator interest in each will be examined.
