MANSFIELD, MA, June 19th, 2014 – Telco Systems, a BATM company (LSE: BVC, TASE: BATM) and a leading provider of innovative SDN & NFV solutions as well as CE 2.0 multi-service Carrier Ethernet and MPLS edge access solutions for mobile backhaul, business Ethernet services and cloud networking, has announced that it has joined the Intel® Network Builders program.

This news comes following Telco Systems’ announcement of a strategic transition of their portfolio towards SDN & NFV and introduction of its innovative Open Metro Edge (OME) solution. As part of the OME, Telco Systems introduced their new CloudMetro product line of demarcation and aggregation products that embed additional CPUs to host different Virtual Networking Functions (VNF) at the edge of the network.

The CloudMetro product line uses Intel® architecture which utilizes open hardware standards like AdvancedTCA and more to provide the processing resources. This architecture will help transform edge devices from single-purpose devices to multi-functional devices. 

Also utilizing Intel architecture, Telco Systems’ newly announced TelcoApps – an assortment of innovative virtual networking applications – enables virtualized network functions to be hosted on not only Telco Systems’ platforms, but also on any Intel processor anywhere in the network. The combination of the company’s Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certified solutions, along with Intel processors will provide highly innovative and open network edge solutions. In addition, Telco Systems’ support of NETCONF protocols and the company's roadmap towards OpenFlow creates an innovative and future-proof solution.
