Telco Systems and the NEXCOM International will display the first service-ready uCPE solutions based on both Arm and Intel Denverton architectures at the upcoming MEF17 event in Orlando, Florida on November 13-16.
The uCPE solutions consists of Telco Systems’ NFVTime software and NEXCOM’s DNA 1160 and NSA 3640 white box appliances. The new solutions introduce higher performance, security and deployment flexibility based on the unique NFVTime software and NXP Semiconductors and Denverton hardware platform capabilities.
The two companies will present a joint live demo of the uCPE solutions for deploying network functions virtualization (NFV) services at Telco Systems booth #607.
“We are experiencing strong demand for NFVTime, which is being driven its unique capability to enable a service provider to launch NFV services within weeks using our uCPE solution,” said Raanan Tzemach, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Telco Systems. “Our collaboration with NEXCOM, Intel and NXP introduces new innovative solutions that address the market need for a wider selection of uCPE options and the need for better performance-to-cost that are key for the business success of our customers.”
“Network communication and services are gradually becoming integral parts within the telecom industry with many operators shifting their focus to network services. NFV, which allows agile and flexible service delivery and facilitates the management of increasingly complex service strategies, is seen as an ideal solution for telecom carriers to easily allocate hardware resources for service upgrade, expansion and termination,” said Hadwin Liu, Chief Architect of the Network & Communication Solutions Business Group at NEXCOM. “We are excited to join forces with Telco Systems to assist customers in reaching their NFV objectives, showcased by the high performance demonstrated using Telco Systems’ NFVTime run on NEXCOM DNA1160 white boxes.”
NFVTime includes an NFVi-OS and an uCPE manger that provides management and orchestration (MANO). By transparently supporting both Arm and Intel x86 architectures, NFVTime allows service providers to select the appropriate technology mix to support different use cases and business requirements without the need to change deployment or operational processes.
NEXCOM’s DNA 1160 white box appliance features the Intel Atom processor C3000 product family and integrates multi-core computing performance, hardware acceleration in virtualization, crypto and compression workloads.
The latest move is part of Telco Systems aim to expand the NFVTime ecosystem and create strong partnership with stakeholders in the market. In September, the company collaborated with AAEON, a leading designer and manufacturer of network appliances, to offer joint uCPE solutions for telcos and managed service providers. As part of this partnership, Telco Systems made its optimized NFVTime solution available on white box appliances from AAEON’s FWS series.
In October, Telco Systems partnered with NEC/Netcracker to jointly offer a solution that supports the rapid deployment of network functions virtualization (NFV) service chains across data centers and at customer premises.
Telco Systems and NXP also lunched jointly the industry’s first Arm-based uCPE solution available in the market. In close collaboration with Arm, the solution combines a rich uCPE feature set on a multicore communications platform in the LS2088A that enables a performance, power and cost point not available in the market with existing architectures.
