Telco Systems Launches SDN-NFV Strategy
MANSFIELD, Mass. & CHICAGO, -- Telco Systems today announced their new strategy focused on their innovative Open Metro Edge (OME) SDN & NFV solutions supporting their network evolution approach for transitioning from Carrier Ethernet 2.0 to SDN and NFV architectures.
Telco Systems, a subsidiary of BATM Advanced Communications, is a provider of CE 2.0 multi-service Carrier Ethernet and MPLS edge access solutions for mobile backhaul, business Ethernet services and cloud networking. The initiation of Telco Systemsí new strategy seeks to expand on their current portfolio of solutions by introducing their CloudMetro distributed NFV demarcation and aggregation product family, TelcoApps software network application products, and TelcoController SDN orchestration product.
Telco Systems' new strategy aims to harness the emerging SDN & NFV technologies to help service providers transition from being a connectivity provider to being able to offer IT content aware networks. Leveraging their CloudMetro distributed NFV products and TelcoApps virtualization tools, Telco Systemsí OME solution will transform current Carrier Ethernet networks that are built of single purpose elements into new age networks offering multi-functional devices.
Service providers will be able to offer new value-added services over the same infrastructures while shortening the introduction of those services from weeks to days. Telco Systemsí TelcoController SDN orchestration product can cut OPEX up to 80% with fast and automatic service provisioning and on demand dynamic bandwidth allocation support.
While other players offer NFV solutions either at the core or at the access points of the network, Telco Systemsí OME solutions are unique in the fact that it has the placement flexibility to position the various virtual networking functions (VNF) at any location on the network and to be orchestrated by TelcoController.
TelcoApps software products implement Telco Systemsí CloudMetro devices to offer a full future-proof solution with CE 2.0, MPLS and OpenFlow support options for not only the Telco Systemsí CloudMetro product line, but also third party CPU based equipment, allowing Telco Systemsí customers to get fully flexible solutions to fit their needs.
