Telco Systems Offers uCPE With VMware-VeloCloud SD-WAN
April 08, 2019 / Ali Longwell
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.
