STOCKHOLM -- Tail-f Systems, a leading provider of network service programmability solutions for traditional and software-defined networks (SDN), today announced that Deutsche Telekom has chosen Tail-f Systems to deliver the key software components of its software-defined network in its TeraStream project.
As the face of networking is changing, TeraStream’s goal is to create an all-IP transformation to cope with exponential traffic growth while streamlining the delivery of network services in real time. With Tail-f’s NCS (Network Control System) TeraStream is able to deliver this new networking model through a network-wide and service-aware unified application programming interface (API).
"We believe carriers can no longer afford to hard-code services into the OSS if they want to get to market quickly with new services," said Axel Clauberg, Vice President, Aggregation, Transport, IP and Fixed Access, Deutsche Telekom AG. "The Tail-f NCS solution, with both services and the network modeled in a standardized high-level language, shortens time to market, increases vendor independence and dramatically improves the cost structure. This SDN solution is a key component in TeraStream’s real-time OSS. "
