Telco Systems has partnered with FatPipe Networks, to jointly provide an open universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) solution that offers real-time software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) services that support both Intel X86 and Arm architectures with any additional virtual network functions (VNF) services.
The new offering combines Telco Systems’ NFVTime uCPE and FatPipe’s SD-WAN solution. By using the joint solution, telcos and managed service providers can offer a high performance, plug-and-play framework to accelerate SD-WAN deployments. All this is done, while maintaining the service agility to expand service offerings to include additional VNF services using any Intel or Arm hardware.
“FatPipe is a well experienced SD-WAN vendor with one of the leading SD-WAN options in the market today. The combined offering is the only, SD-WAN solution that can seamlessly run on both x86 architectures,” said Ariel Efrati, CEO at Telco Systems.
“By adding FatPipe’s SD-WAN solution to our expanding VNF portfolio, we lower the barriers to entry for network functions virtualization (NFV) deployments and allow service providers to rely on a tested, preconfigured and automatically provisioned VNFs to provide their customers with rich, carrier-grade services.”
“This partnership emphasizes service providers need to have a fully integrated SD-WAN VNF combined with a high performance open uCPE. This is required to virtually deploy more network functions meeting the growing requirements of offering new services to business customers,” said Dr. Ragula Bhaskar, CEO of Fat Pipe Networks.
“Together with Telco Systems we can deliver our SD-WAN solution over the market leading NFVTime open uCPE and quickly bring great value to international service providers that need a smooth and quick path to NFV deployments and new customer services.”
NFVTime provides a complete service environment to rapidly launch and manage NFV services. NFVTime includes an NFVi-OS, uCPE MANO and a broad portfolio of certified VNFs that are centrally managed and orchestrated. NFVTime’s NFVi-OS can turn any commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) x86 and Arm white box hardware device into a fully operational uCPE.
As part of this joint offering, the FatPipe SD-WAN VNF will run over NFVTime’s NFVi-OS. This gives telcos and managed service providers the service agility to deploy SD-WAN services over an open uCPE and remotely deploy any additional VNF service chain, including vRouter, vFirewall, vProbe, vSecurity and others, at any time with zero touch, plug-and-play provisioning.
