SDN-Enabled Broadband Access (SEBA) is an Exemplar Platform being built by the ONF and CORD community. SEBA is a lightweight platform based on a variant of R-CORD. It supports a multitude of virtualized access technologies at the edge of the carrier network, including PON, G.Fast, and eventually DOCSIS and more. SEBA supports both residential access and wireless backhaul and is optimized such that traffic can run ‘fastpath’ straight through to the backbone without requiring VNF processing on a server. It's built with Kubernetes, high speed, and operationalized with FCAPS and OSS Integration.

A high level overview of the SEBA platform can be found here and you can find the Design Documents on Google Drive.

For more information on the component projects included in this platform, see the wiki pages for NEM (Network Edge Mediator) and VOLTHA (Virtual OLT Hardware Abstraction).
