Vyve Broadband, a Multiple-System Operator (MSO) providing residential and commercial data, voice, and video service to rural communities, has chosen to upgrade their core network infrastructure to the OcNOS network operating system from IP Infusion. With this upgrade, Vyve is replacing an existing NOS installation by utilizing a variety of white box network hardware from Edgecore Networks.

Critical to Vyve’s upgrade strategy was a standardized deployment plan and rapid rollout. RocNet Supply, a specialist in broadband and fiber network infrastructure, provided design and testing expertise to ensure a seamless deployment.

“RocNet was able to set up a deployment lab with Edgecore hardware running OcNOS to test the configuration, and begin rolling out the solution within three months,” said Mike Baker, CEO of RocNet. “This represents about half the time to revenue that we typically see from other vendors.”

“By the time we were one-third through our deployment, we realized a significant drop in support calls to Vyve’s care centers,” said Randy Horn, Vice President of Network Engineering at Vyve Broadband.
