Telco Systems Unveils CloudMetro 10, a 1GE virtualization platform

Telco Systems, a provider of innovative CE 2.0, MPLS, IP and SDN & NFV solutions, has released CloudMetro 10, a new 1GE virtualization platform, for carrier-grade performance achieved by a unique acceleration technology and has recently completed a series of commercial trials with Tier 1 service providers around the world.

CloudMetro 10 is a new member of Telco Systems innovative Open Metro Edge (OME) solution portfolio of metro edge solutions, designed to help telcos and other communications service providers transition their networks to SDN and NFV infrastructure.

The OME portfolio includes CloudMetro vCPE 1GE to 10GE family of virtualization platforms, EdgeGenie Orchestrator for management and orchestration, and TelcoApps library of pre-configured packages of virtualized network functions. CloudMetro 10 supports hardware acceleration and pre-integrated VNF applications enabling carrier-grade performance with multi-service chaining.

Telco Systems has also expanded its library of VNF applications. These VNF applications are used by service providers to deliver NFV-enabled IT management and security services to their enterprise customers. Telco Systems already offers VNF applications for security, routing, SD-WAN and WAN-optimization services from leading vendors, including Check Point, Audio Codes, Palo Alto and Netrounds, and has recently successfully tested additional VNF applications with Cisco, Brocade, Juniper, Silver Peak, Riverbed and Fortinet.

“We are proud of the progress and achievements we have made with our CloudMetro platforms and OME solution,” commented Raanan Tzemach, Vice President of Product and Marketing at Telco Systems. “We are positioning our customers to take full advantage of the benefits of SDN and NFV and efficiently offer a new set of virtualized services with flexible business models based on our VNF-packages.”

Telco Systems recently completed a series of high profile proof-of-concept (PoC) trials of its OME solution at a number of Tier 1 service providers in the United States, Europe and Asia. During these PoCs, Telco Systems proved that the CloudMetro platform and its library of VNF applications support the high performance, carrier-grade multiple service chaining requirements of Tier 1 service providers.

Telco Systems will be exhibiting its OME portfolio at the Big Communications Event in Austin, Texas at Booth #200 during May 24-25 and at CommunicAsia in Singapore at Booth #6 in the Israeli Pavilion during May 31 to June 3.
