  • CyberGuard Security suite 

NFVTime Suite Components

1. NFVTime-OS for uCPE and POD

An open-source, thin and robust NFVi-OS that turns any x86-device, low or high resource hardware, into a fully operational uCPE or POD. 

With its small system footprint and high performance, optimized to extract superior performance from Intel™ processors, it is a perfect solution for operators seeking to rapidly deploy end-to-end, carrier-class services in the business or metro environment. 

It can run any VNF service out of the box and requires zero setup – thanks to the NFVTime-Central provisioning and control server.

NFVTime-OS is tested and certified on many hardware types from a variety of vendors – or directly from Telco Systems.

3. NFVTime Central

uCPE MANO Solution 
End to end automated uCPE deployment, management and operation


Telco Systems’ NFVTime Central is a complete remote management and control system for modern NFV edge deployments. It provides Zero Touch Provisioning, Disaster Recovery (Backup/Restore) and vCPE Controller for devices and services deployed with the NFVTime solution. It is natively integrated with Telco Systems CloudMetro™ 10/100 vCPE (Integrated CE NID and x86), Verge 1000/2000/3000 uCPE (pure x86 platform) and third party certified White Boxes (Bring your own device business model for x86 platforms), all based on NFVTime-OS, a robust, open source, comprehensive NFVi-OS.

The NFVTime management and operations solution starts with the zero-touch deployment of a device and follows with automatic activation, authentication, and upgrade of software components. The ability to define service templates with multiple VNFs and network profiles by the customer or by customer site, dramatically reduces deployment time, operational support costs, and provides for rapid reaction to create and offer new services.

NFVTime simplifies, accelerates, and automates the lifecycle procedures with Home Calling, Remote Backup and Restore, Remote Upgrade, and Customer-Service management features.


4. NFVTime-SEC, CyberGuard

NFV cyber security solution, protecting the NFV infrastructure against next-generation security vulnerabilities.  Based on big data and advanced analytic algorithms,
CyberGuard monitors and protects the NFV network topology, flows and service chaining against unauthorized modifications.
