Telco Systems and 6WIND Introduce First vRouter on Open uCPE for Intel Denverton and Arm

New joint solution is designed to meet growing demand from telcos and managed service providers for increased performance, flexibility and cost savings

MANSFIELD, MA and SANTA CLARA, CA, November 9, 2017 — Telco Systems, the leading provider of innovative SDN/NFV, CE 2.0, MPLS and IP solutions, and 6WIND, a high performance networking software company, today announced that the two companies have introduced the first vRouter on an open uCPE solution with support for both Intel x86 and Arm architectures. 

The design of this new joint solution combines Telco Systems’ NFVTime solution with 6WIND’s Turbo Router. The joint solution will create an open and agile service delivery platform, allowing service providers to rapidly launch and remotely manage managed router services on a standalone basis or as part of service chains that include additional virtual network functions. 

NFVTime is a carrier-class NFVi-OS running on white box appliances. NFVTime includes a broad portfolio of certified VNFs, including SD-WAN, vRouter, vFirewall, vProbe, vSecurity and more, that are centrally managed and orchestrated from the network edge. With NFVTime, any new VNF service can be remotely launched at any time with zero touch, plug-and-play provisioning. 

6WIND Turbo Router is a high performance, ready-to-use software network appliance deployed in bare metal environments or as a virtual machine. With 12 million packets per second per core of routing performance, 6WIND Turbo Router provides the performance of hardware networking equipment with the ease of deployment and flexibility of software.

The new combined solution from Telco Systems and 6WIND will be completely hardware agnostic and runs on both Intel x86 and Arm architectures. By supporting multiple technologies and multiple vendors, this solution gives service providers more flexibility and greater cost savings with high performance over low cost hardware, such as Intel ATOM and Arm/NXP devices.

“We are excited to demonstrate 6WIND Turbo Router in both x86 and Arm frameworks enabled by the unique 100% hardware agnostic architectural approach of Telco Systems’ NFVTime,” said Eric Carmès, Founder and CEO of 6WIND. “NFVTime multiplies the value to VNF vendors and delivers important flexibility and cost effectiveness to service providers.” 

“More services on a smaller resource footprint in an open and flexible service delivery environment is a strong value proposition,” commented Ariel Efrati, CEO of Telco Systems. “6WIND is a great addition to our market leading portfolio of VNFs and we are especially proud to be a leading force behind the developments and innovations pushing the NFV market forward.” 

Telco Systems and 6WIND will be demonstrating this open uCPE solution at the upcoming MEF17 event in Orlando, Florida on November 13-16 at Telco Systems’ booth - #607.
