Telco Systems will lead the development of a new advanced, service-ready universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) and network function virtualization (NFV) Edge solutions based on Arm architecture.
Arm and Telco Systems will work together to expand the technology partner ecosystem, customer pipeline and other go-to-market activities. This Arm-NFVTime ecosystem will include virtual network functions (VNF) and hardware vendors and will address the needs of Tier 1 service providers and network operators. The new partner ecosystem will allow VNF and white box vendors unlock new business opportunities, create competitive differentiators and demonstrate superior performance.
The two companies will offer existing and new uCPE and NFV Edge solutions to deliver service providers, network operators and enterprises with higher performance, reduced costs and greater agility to meet business models.
“The Arm architecture offers low operating costs with greater design flexibility and better security for uCPE and edge devices,” explained Drew Henry, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Infrastructure Line of Business at Arm. “We recognize Telco Systems as an innovative leader in the uCPE and NFV spaces and are excited to leverage a shared vision in delivering new world-class solutions to the market.”
In coordination with Arm’s technical team, Telco Systems will lead a multiyear development program that will include the productization of existing prototypes for uCPE devices, specifically those based on NXP and Marvell system-on-chips (SoCs), and advanced, service-ready uCPE and NFV Edge solutions.
The company will focus on the development of performance acceleration solutions that utilize Arm and its SoC vendors’ competitive edge, containerization of VNFs and cybersecurity solutions based on Arm TrustZone. These new solutions will also serve as the foundation for future Arm-based Edge compute, IoT and MEC solutions.
“This significant deal will bring to the market new uCPE and NFV Edge solutions and will drive the execution of Arm’s strategy for the telecommunications networking infrastructure market,” said Ariel Efrati, CEO at Telco Systems. “We are already experiencing strong demand for our NFVTime solution running on Arm architecture and we have strong expectations that our new solutions will attract great interest, especially from Tier 1 service providers in North America and other developed markets.”
