Telco Systems Supplies Client with Hundreds of 10 Gbps Demarcation Devices

By Casey Houser June 06, 2016

Telco Systems, a manufacturer of hardware for a range of telecommunications infrastructure such as traditional and software-defined networking, announced this past week the latest delivery of its 10 Gigabit Ethernet demarcation devices.

It has supplied several hundred of its T-Marc 3348 devices to a Tier 1 service provider that operates in Southeast Asia. Telco Systems did not name its client in the news release. It only noted that the client will now have the capability to increase its network capacity to 10 Gigabit throughput on Ethernet, MPLS, and IP-based connections for various business services.

Raanan Tzemach, the vice president of product and marketing at Telco Systems, noted that the use of 10 Gigabit system has reached the point of ubiquity where at least the most influential telecoms have the ability to offer that connection speed.

“We are proud to be announcing an additional project extension with another Tier 1 customer of ours,” Tzemach said. “10GE is quickly becoming a requirement for service providers to meet the broadband demands of new services and customer usage. We are well positioned to help service providers around the world with this migration and we expect to be announcing similar projects soon.”

Product developers such as Telco Systems are also using their influence in hardware to spread the use of their software. Telco Systems paired the delivery of its T-Marcs in this arrangement with its EdgeGenie Orchestrator CE 2.0 software that will allow its client to define the location of its services within a network and control the provision of those services with a fine edge.

In the past year, Telco Systems has boosted the capability of its EdgeGenie network management software to include more protections for software-defined networking and its associated virtual network functions (NFV). It released its NFV CyberGuard software to work in tandem with EdgeGenie. It continuously scans individual applications to learn expected network behaviors and then have the capability to determine attacks in the form of advance persistent threats or denials of service. NFV CyberGuard can then take immediate action to eliminate threats before they become a network-wide problem.

The Southeast Asia telecom in a relationship here should have access to similar tools. It can now offer its own customers a higher quality of service regarding both speed and security.
