New open vCPE Solution for SD-WAN


Telecom network communications solutions provider Telco Systems and broadband and hybrid WAN supplier Silver Peak have teamed up to offer a new open virtual customer premises equipment package for managed software-defined networking in wide area network services.

The new vCPE SD-WAN solution is claimed to allow service providers to introduce new tiered, high-performance, virtualised services with minimum delay.

It also claims to allow telcos and managed service providers to deliver on what network functions virtualisation has promised: to be an agile, open and flexible service delivery platform that supports any virtualised network function service in parallel to, or as part of, a service chain with SD-WAN services.

This is said to remove the time and expense previously needed to deploy stand-alone appliances on a customer’s premises for each service.

A statement said the new solution "integrated the Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect virtual SD-WAN solution with Telco Systems’ Verge platform. The latter is an open, service-ready, plug-and-play vCPE based on industry standard x86 hardware platforms and is part of Telco Systems’ new NFVTime suite".

The Silver Peak EdgeConnect virtual SD-WAN solution is claimed to be a scalable, multi-tenant SD-WAN solution that provides secure, virtual overlays to connect users to applications and let them use any combination of MPLS, broadband and LTE transport services without degrading network or application performance.

The setup can be centrally managed with Silver Peak's Unity OrchestratorSP management platform. Application-driven security policies can be set up for connectivity to trusted SaaS and Web applications from any branch location.

The joint solution is also claimed to "provide zero touch provisioning and deployment, orchestration and portal integration. The integrated solution is extensible to include third-party functions, such as virtual firewalls and virtual SLA probes drawn from both companies extensive VNF partner ecosystem".

Telco Systems vice-president of Product Management, Raanan Tzemach, said: “We are excited to get more involved in the rapidly growing SD-WAN market and to partner with the emerging market leader in this space.

“Our joint offering with Silver Peak delivers the freedom telcos and managed service providers have been searching for to pick and choose the VNF services they want to offer without the traditional constraints of any particular vCPE or SD-WAN platform.”

Silver Peak vice-president for Service Providers and Cloud, Shayne Stubbs, said: “The Silver Peak partnership with Telco Systems underscores the value of combining a best in class CPE virtualisation platform with a complete SD-WAN software solution, bringing the future of managed business services to telcos and service providers today.

“Our collaboration with Telco Systems expands our market reach and allows us to better serve our telco and managed service provider customers by offering our award winning SD-WAN solution as a turnkey VNF service.”

The new solution is being demonstrated at the NFV World Congress being held in San Jose, California, from 2 to 5 May.
