Telco Systems and Marvell introduce deployment-ready uCPE at MWC 2018

Telco Systems added the Marvell ARMADA 8040 system-on-chip (SoC) from CyberTAN to its white box offerings in its growing ecosystem of Arm-based uCPE solutions.

Telco Systems, Arm and Marvell offer together a high performance uCPE solution.  Telco Systems’ NFVTime NFVi-OS will power the Marvell ARMADA 8040 SoC integrated on the CyberTAN white box.

Telco Systems and Marvell demonstrate their new joint uCPE offering at Arm’s booth in Hall 6, Stand 6E30 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, which opened today in Barcelona, Spain.

This new solution meets ongoing market requirement for additional high-performance options for telcos and managed service providers to select the appropriate hardware architecture for their specific operational and business requirements.

“As the build-out of edge computing systems continues to grow across multiple industries, there is a significant need in the ecosystem for cost-effective, power-efficient solutions that meet the requirements that edge computing deployments demand,” said Chris Koopmans, Executive Vice President, Networking and Connectivity at Marvell. “We are pleased to be collaborating with Telco Systems and Arm to introduce a high performance uCPE solution that we believe will bring the compute power, efficiency and flexibility to support the successful launch of NFV services for edge computing applications.”

“We see uCPE as a key area in enabling compute at the edge, and one where Arm can show a real technology advantage,” said Drew Henry, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Infrastructure Business Unit, Arm. “Telco Systems and its underlying technology are an important contribution to this market, enabling uCPE solutions for service providers and enterprises. Adding Marvell to the NFVTime ecosystem is an important step in enhancing the overall Arm-based uCPE ecosystem.”

NFVTime is an advanced NFVi-OS that can turn any white box appliance into an open, carrier-class uCPE solution. NFVTime comes with a broad portfolio of tested and certified VNFs, including SD-WAN, vRouter, vFirewall, vProbe, vSecurity and more. It can match any solution that is 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 giving service providers the freedom to choose any hardware and any VNF.

The CyberTAN white box platform is comprised of several key Marvell technologies that bring an integrated solution designed to enable significant hardware cost savings. The platform incorporates the power-efficient Marvell ARMADA 8040 SoC based on the Arm Cortex-A72 quad-core processor, with up to 2GHz CPU clock speed, and Marvell E6390x Link Street Ethernet switch. The Marvell Ethernet switch supports 10G uplink and 8 x 1GbE ports along with integrated PHYs, four of which are auto-media GbE ports (combo ports).
