Telco System has witnessed, in the last 12 months ending June 2018, an impressive growth of more than 28 percent in overall shipments to North America of its MEF based Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) compliant devices.
Growth in the Carrier Ethernet space is being driven predominantly by the ongoing demand from communications service providers (CSPs) for additional bandwidth to support the migration to more cloud-based wholesale and business services, mainly software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN).
The company has entered the second consecutive year of massive growth in demand for its innovative software-defined networking (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV), CE 2.0, multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) and Internet protocol (IP) solutions after it previously reported growth of over 20% for the same period in 2017. The company also added, ten new communications service provider customers in North America in the same period.
The rise was supported by growing number of orders for Telco Systems’ 100GE T-Metro 8100 service demarcation and aggregation platform. T-Metro 8100 gives service providers the required high reliability and flexibility to aggregate multiple services over 1GE, 10GE and 100GE port rates in metro Ethernet environments.
“SD-WAN is an over-the-top technology that must have an underlying network,” said Reinhard Florin, Vice President of Sales and General Manager for North America at Telco Systems. “Much of the demand we are experiencing for our carrier Ethernet demarcation and transport solutions is to support the uptake and growth of SD-WAN from our customers.”
Telco Systems will be presenting its full portfolio of networking solutions, including the 100GE T-Metro 8100 service aggregation platform and NFVTime uCPE solution at MEF18 in Los Angeles on October 29 – November 2 at Telco Systems’ booth – F4.
Florin will also be participating in a panel discussion at the MEF18 event on Tuesday, October 30 in a session titled Universal CPE – Accelerating Service Delivery in Both Brownfield and Greenfield Deployments.
