NFV Zone

Telco Systems today unveiled the first two TelcoApps, as it calls them, to run on its CloudMetro distributed network functions virtualization demarcation and aggregation platforms. Those apps are vFirewall and vRouter.

The vFirewall application leverages Check Point firewall and security technology to allow service providers to centrally manage and create vFirewall instances as needed. It enables service providers to sell this capability as a service as well.

The vRouter solution, meanwhile, virtualizes Layer 3 routing in an effort to save service providers on upfront and ongoing costs.
