Telco Systems launches Open Edge Alliance for SDN, NFV ecosystem

Fierce Wireless

Telco Systems formally launched its Open Edge Alliance (OEA) for creating an ecosystem of best-in-breed software-defined networking (SDN) and distributed network functions virtualization (D-NFV) solutions for the network edge.

The OEA is building an online store of applications certified to run seamlessly on Telco Systems' carrier-grade, D-NFV-hosting CloudMetro platform, which is already deployed in numerous service provider networks. 

According to Telco Systems, CloudMetro enables service providers to transform their networks from mere transport to fully IT-enabled networks: highly orchestrated, agile and virtualized. It combines a switch and an integrated x86 CPU from Intel as a hosting processor to meet performance demands for processor-intensive SDN and NFV applications.
