Telco Systems Unveils SDN Orchestrator

By Paula Bernier June 09, 2015

It’s been a busy week for Telco Systems. Just yesterday the company unveiled a new multimodal demarcation device that can support software-defined networking deployments. Today the company came out with an orchestrator for SDN management.

The EdgeGenie Orchestrator has an embedded OpenDaylight controller and supports OpenFlow SDN devices and the OpenStack NFV controller.

Its OpenDaylight capability includes support for the latest software release. That release, called Helium, offers a new user interface, easier and customizable installation, deeper integration with OpenStack, and various other performance improvements and features over The OpenDaylight Project’s initial release, which was called Hydrogen. While there are various versions of Hydrogen, all of them included a modular, extensible, scalable and multiprotocol SDN controller based on OSGi; an OpenFlow plugin; an OpenFlow protocol library; Open vSwitch Database configuration and management protocol support; and Java-based NETCONF YANG tooling for OpenDaylight projects.

The EdgeGenie Orchestrator can help with everything from planning to managing, monitoring and maintaining network services. And it can be used not only to provision NFV and SDN, but also for Carrier Ethernet 2.0, Ethernet, and MPLS.

“Today, service provider networks are adopting and expanding both Carrier Ethernet and SDN/NFV technologies,” notes Moshe Shimon, TelcoSystems’ vice president of product line management and marketing. “They need a comprehensive management system that enables them to seamlessly manage their networks in transition. EdgeGenie Orchestrator helps service providers operate and transition their networks, and remain in complete control.” 

Telco Systems news yesterday involved the introduction of the T-Marc 3308. The demarcation device supports Carrier Ethernet 2.0, IP Layer 3, MPLS, and SDN – including support for OpenFlow and NETCONF.

“We are at a time of an upheaval in networking. In order to remain competitive, service providers must support current operations without so much as a hiccup while they adopt new technologies,” said Amos Sofer, T-Marc 3308 product manager.
