Telco Systems Offers uCPE With VMware-VeloCloud SD-WAN
Telco Systems today announced that it will offer an open universal CPE (uCPE) pre-integrated with the VMware VeloCloud-based SD-WAN service. This new offering will allow service providers to deploy the VMware SD-WAN services on their hardware of choice. The offering is part of Telco Systems NFVTime suite, which delivers a service-ready, plug-and-play uCPE. NFVTime includes an operating system, a marketplace of virtual network functions (VNFs) from third-party vendors (such as VMware), and a centralized management and control system, including a uCPE Controller. The operating system is the main offering at play here as it allows service providers to remotely offer additional VNF service chains, including virtual firewalls and other virtual security services, with zero-touch provisioning. What’s unique about the operating system is that it can turn any x86-device, with either low or high resources, into a fully operational uCPE. It uses Intel processors. NFVTime has out-of-box hardware support from white-box providers Dell EMC, Lanner, Advantech, Supermicro, Aaeon, Nexcom, Intel, and Arm; and has a VNF library that includes Cisco, Netrounds, 6Wind, Trend Micro, Palo Alto Networks, Fortinet, Check Point, Certes, Silver Peak, Audio Codes, and now VMware-Velocloud. A few weeks ago, Sanjay Uppal, the vice president and general manager of VeloCloud, spoke to SDxCentral about how it was broadening its definition of SD-WAN to the network edge, which included delivering SD-WAN as-a-platform. “SD-WAN becoming the platform provides integrations with all these other companies out there so that there can be simplicity and cost savings for the enterprise,” said Uppal at that time. And in February, the company said that it was working with both Adva and Telco Systems to deliver uCPE offerings that consolidate services alongside its SD-WAN VNF on a single x86 platform.
