Telco Systems has teamed up with NXP Semiconductors to introduce an Arm-based uCPE solution that will enable service providers to deploy securely multiple VNFs with high performance in multi-vendor environment.
In close collaboration with Arm, a multi-national semiconductor and software design company, the solution combines a rich uCPE feature set on a multicore communications platform that enables a performance, power and cost point not available in the market with existing architectures.
This advanced solution fulfills a market demand for multi-technology and multi-vendor uCPE white box solutions that enable telecom and managed service providers with more options to choose the best technology to address their operational environment and business targets.
By using NFVTime as the common uCPE NFVi OS software for Arm-based and other popular white box devices, service providers are now able to introduce this Arm uCPE without complicating the operation processes or compromising functionality and service capabilities at the MANO integration layer.
Telco Systems’ NFVTime is an open uCPE that includes a hardware agnostic NFVi-OS and uCPE MANO software solutions. NFVTime is service-ready with out-of-the-box support for SD-WAN, managed router, managed security, and other VNFs, which can be added remotely at any time.
The advanced uCPE white box offering is based on the Layerscape LS2088A processor with eight 64-bit Arm Cortex-A72 Cores. The processor cores in combination with integrated hardware acceleration for cryptographic processing, virtual forwarding and traffic management provide performance to support multi-gigabit routing and network services.
