Flexible and agile service adaptation at the cost of commodity servers and whitebox switches VOLTHA introduces the next-generation optical access system architecture, based on SDN/NFV technologies. Disaggregating PON functions to functional modules with open interfaces supports the CORD vision for open source reference implementations to service "Access-as-a-Service" use cases. VOLTHA is a virtual OLT hardware abstraction component that supports the CORD Project objective of multi-vendor, multi-domain "any broadband access as a service" reference implementation for the Central Office. VOLTHA provides isolation between an abstract (vendor agnostic) PON management system, and a set of vendor-specific and white-box PON hardware devices. On its north-bound interface, VOLTHA provides a set of abstract APIs which north-bound systems can interact with the PON networks. On its south-bound side, VOLTHA communicates with PON hardware devices using vendor-specific protocols and protocol extensions through adapters.

The Technical Steering Team is the group of people responsible for the technical direction of the project. As of April 2022, the VOLTHA TST consists of the following members:
The mailing lists are the preferred way to get in touch with the project members with any questions, suggestions, or concerns.
