Telco Systems and FatPipe Networks jointly announced that the two companies are partnering to provide an open uCPE solution for offering real-time SD-WAN VNF services.
This new joint offering combines Telco Systems’ NFVTime uCPE and FatPipe’s SD-WAN solution. Telco Systems’ NFVTime provides a complete service environment to rapidly launch and manage NFV services. NFVTime includes an NFVi-OS, uCPE MANO and a broad portfolio of certified VNFs that are centrally managed and orchestrated. NFVTime’s NFVi-OS can turn any commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) x86 and Arm white box hardware device into a fully operational uCPE.
As part of this joint offering, the FatPipe SD-WAN VNF will run over NFVTime’s NFVi-OS. This gives telcos and managed service providers the service agility to deploy SD-WAN services over an open uCPE and remotely deploy any additional VNF service chain, including vRouter, vFirewall, vProbe, vSecurity and others, at any time with zero touch, plug-and-play provisioning, says the companies.
