Telco Systems keeps growing its Arm-based VNF ecosystem, that runs on the company’s open uCPE NFVi software. This time, the company collaborated with global cybersecurity solutions provider Trend Micro to jointly launch the first vSecurity VNF to support new virtualized managed security services.
The solution is based on Telco Systems’ NFVTime and Trend Micro’s Virtual Network Function Suite (VNFS). It combines rich industry experiences and enables telcos and managed service providers to deliver best-of-breed network security services, including intrusion prevention and web security, with Arm-based uCPE white box solutions.
The new security offering extends customers options for uCPE hardware selection without adding deployment or operation complexities due the NFVTime’s seamless support multi-technology architectures.
“vSecurity, based on Trend Micro’s market leading Virtual Network Function Suite, is an important addition to our growing Arm-based VNF ecosystem,” said Raanan Tzemach, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Telco Systems. “We are proud to lead the market innovations and allow our customers more choices to meet the deployment and management of their VNF services.”
“uCPE offers a remotely manageable platform and allows telcos and managed service providers to easily and flexibly deploy network services to achieve higher customer satisfaction,” Dr. Terence Liu, Vice President of the Network Threat Defense Technology Group at Trend Micro stated. “The joint offering is based on Arm architecture, which delivers higher performance for less cost. Together with Telco Systems we can help our customers deliver high quality network security services in the new NFV era.”
Telco Systems’ NFVTime is an advanced NFVi-OS that can turn any white box appliance into a carrier-class uCPE solution. NFVTime comes with a broad portfolio of certified VNFs, including SD-WAN, vRouter, vFirewall, vProbe, vSecurity and more.
These VNFs are centrally managed and orchestrated by either Telco Systems’ uCPE manager or any other MANO solution. NFVTime can run on both Intel x86 and Arm architectures, seamlessly providing high performance on COTS cost optimized devices.
Trend Micro’s VNFS offers elastic and high performance network security functions providing threat defense and enabling more effective, faster protection. It is natively crafted and optimized for the NFV infrastructure. It deploys the Data Plane Development Kit for fast packet processing. It also includes advanced security threat technologies that provide greater and more cost-efficient enhancements. VNFS also scans network traffic and performs designated inspection functions, such as intrusion prevention, URL filtering and application control.
