Telco Systems, the provider of SDN & NFV and multi-service carrier Ethernet 2.0 and MPLS edge access solutions, has launched three new software defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualisation (NFV) products: EdgeGenie Orchestrator; vSMU TelcoApp; and vTunnel TelcoApp.
The new products will help telecommunication service providers to make a smooth transition to dynamic, optimised, and cost-effective IT-aware networks.
EdgeGenie SDN Orchestrator
Delivering CE 2.0 services end to end with the required resiliency, QoS and monitoring, EdgeGenie SDN Orchestrator, enables service providers to future-proof their networks as they transition from CE 2.0 to SDN and distributed NFV technologies.
EdgeGenie Orchestrator is an orchestration module that manages distributed NFV deployments including virtual machine initiation, configuration and maintenance, service attachment and chaining, and virtual network function resilience.
It also provides an OpenFlow southbound interface as well as NETCONF and YANG support, enabling simple SDN implementation and integration with other network devices.
Virtualised Service Measurement Utility (vSMU)
A new entry in the growing TelcoApp cache of virtual applications, the virtualised Service Measurement Utility (vSMU), constitutes a fresh, virtualised approach to service-level assurance with accurate prediction of end-user experience at for the Ethernet/IP/TCP/UDP layers.
vSMU enables rapid virtualisation of software agents on edge devices without the need to deploy hardware. It provides accurate service-level measurements and accurate reports of TCP throughput as experienced by service providers’ business customers.
EdgeGenie Orchestrator enables quick deployment of vSMU on Telco Systems’ CloudMetro devices and rapid execution of tests, allowing service providers to certify and guarantee end-customer Ethernet service level upon handover.
The third product, another new TelcoApp, virtual Tunnel (vTunnel) provides encryption for service providers’ business customers for their inter-office, office-to-cloud and hybrid-cloud connections.
“We continue to advance the cause of intelligent and flexible networks with our growing ecosystem of certified and practical SDN and distributed NFV applications that give our service-provider customers the ability to expand their service offerings quickly and very cost-effectively,” stated Moshe Shimon, VP of product management and marketing at Telco Systems.
“SDN & NFV constitute a bold step in network advancement and we are dedicated to providing our customers with a trouble-free, manageable transition to this valuable way of planning and managing networks.”
