Telco Systems Named SDN & NFV Market Disruptor

By Alicia Young March 23, 2017

In every industry there are certain companies whose seal of approval has the potential to help launch other businesses. GlobalData, a provider of market intelligence for global IT and telecom professionals, is one of those companies. And this week, it helped Telco Systems gain massive amounts of attention by recognizing it as a SDN & NFV Market Disruptor.

The SDN & NFV Market Disruptor recognition is GlobalData’s way of providing an overview and analysis of companies that are generating new competitive threats in their market spaces. GlobalData has published a Market Disruptor profile on Telco Systems, which praises the company for “effectively transitioning from a hardware-focused carrier Ethernet equipment supplier to a provider of virtual network solutions, enabling service providers to address new virtual customer premise, access and aggregation markets,” according to the announcement.

“Telco Systems has retained its rich portfolio of carrier Ethernet access capabilities, while fully virtualizing its product line to meet growing cloud-based service demands,” explained Glen Hunt Principal Analyst for Global Telecom Technology and Software at GlobalData. “In the process, the company has grown its partner ecosystem to offer its customers a broad range of software-based service functions and provides the management and orchestration tools needed to efficiently deploy a full complement of virtual CPE solutions.”

One of the major contributors to Telco Systems’ success is its NFVTime solution, which helps telcos launch new vCPE services. NFVTime provides the virtualized NFV infrastructure (NFVi) solution for running any VNF on any x86 hardware platform, either on third party or Telco Systems specific platforms. This approach transforms the current practice of using dedicated network appliances and relying on appliance stacking. According to GlobalData, Telco Systems’ approach is a big improvement.

Telco Systems is excited to receive this recognition from a prominent company like GlobalData, with Raanan Tzemach, Vice President of Product Management at Telco Systems, saying, “This important recognition confirms our approach for providing service providers with a turnkey solution that facilitates a short time-to-market and short time-to-revenue for the launch of NFV services without compromising on performance and functionality.” Tzemach continued on the say that the company has even seen an increase in demand for its NFVTime solution—and that’s what GlobalData’s efforts are all about.
