NFVTime for Arm

Plug-And-Play Open uCPE Suite For Arma


Arm-based uCPE white boxes are now available for NFVTime, adding significant value for NFV services. NFVTime utilizes the unique capabilities provided by the Arm architecture to offer higher performance, better security and a more flexible and cost-effective solution.

Backed by a strong strategic partnership with Arm and its SoC partners, NFVTime’s broad VNF and white box ecosystem continues to expand, supporting SD-WAN, vRouter, vSecurity and any other VNF's on Arm white boxes. 
NFVTime for Arm enables CSPs to gain business agility through NFV with software-defined services that can be delivered to the customer edge with the click of a button, avoiding truck roll and expensive OPEX and CAPEX. Based on NFVTime-OS, a robust NFVi-OS, CSPs are able to mix and match hardware, software, and VNFs to create the optimal NFV environment for their requirements.

The Arm architecture provides additional benefits for uCPE, including a diverse ecosystem of SoC solutions offering agility and flexibility for the right mix of functionality, performance, and cost requirements. With Arm’s unique architectural benefits, NFVTime for Arm offers CSPs enhanced security and higher performance, without sacrificing the carrier-grade lifecycle management, openness and ease-of-integration already available with NFVTime for other platforms.

NFVTime

NFVTime is an open and neutral plug-and-play uCPE suite delivering a complete service environment for the smooth and rapid launch of NFV services, along with service lifecycle management and operational tools.

NFVTime’s QuickDeploy solution provides an NFVi-OS and uCPE Mano lite solution that enables seamless automated deployment of any VNF over mixed x86 and Arm white boxes with carrier-grade service and device lifecycle management.
