Telco Systems has signed a joint development agreement with Arm, the industry's leading supplier of semiconductor IP, for new uCPE and NFV Edge solutions based on Arm architecture.
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.
Telco Systems 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. In order to introduce and promote these uCPE and NFV edge solutions to the market, Telco Systems and Arm will work together to expand the technology partner ecosystem, customer pipeline and other go-to-market activities.
This technology partner ecosystem will include VNF and hardware vendors and will address the needs of Tier 1 service providers and network operators. This Arm-NFVTime ecosystem will also allow VNF and whitebox vendors to unlock new business opportunities, create competitive differentiators and demonstrate superior performance.
