NFVTime is an open and neutral full NFV service environment that allows telecom service providers and network integrators a smooth launch path to NFV services. With NFVTime, SPs will easily provide their customers multiple managed, on-demand, business services that scale and grow with their needs.
Operators can now choose any x86 hardware to deploy multiple, tested, preconfigured and automatically provisioned VNF’s, and start providing rich carrier grade services – fast and simple.
NFVTime suite components includes:
NFVTime Suite Components
1. NFVTime-OS for uCPE and POD
An open-source, thin and robust NFVi-OS that turns any x86-device, low or high resource hardware, into a fully operational uCPE or POD.
With its small system footprint and high performance, optimized to extract superior performance from Intel™ processors, it is a perfect solution for operators seeking to rapidly deploy end-to-end, carrier-class services in the business or metro environment.
It can run any VNF service out of the box and requires zero setup – thanks to the NFVTime-Central provisioning and control server.
NFVTime-OS is tested and certified on many hardware types from a variety of vendors – or directly from Telco Systems.
A wide range of vCPE devices that meet any business and networking requirement. NFVTime Access devices run NFVTime-OS and are auto-configured out-of-the-box for customer needs with any combination of vRouter, vFW, vSD-WAN and any other VNF service from Telco Systems partners.
3. NFVTime Central
Telco Systems’ NFVTime Central is a complete remote management and control system for modern NFV edge deployments. It provides Zero Touch Provisioning, Disaster Recovery (Backup/Restore) and vCPE Controller for devices and services deployed with the NFVTime solution. It is natively integrated with Telco Systems CloudMetro™ 10/100 vCPE (Integrated CE NID and x86), Verge 1000/2000/3000 uCPE (pure x86 platform) and third party certified White Boxes (Bring your own device business model for x86 platforms), all based on NFVTime-OS, a robust, open source, comprehensive NFVi-OS.
The NFVTime management and operations solution starts with the zero-touch deployment of a device and follows with automatic activation, authentication, and upgrade of software components. The ability to define service templates with multiple VNFs and network profiles by the customer or by customer site, dramatically reduces deployment time, operational support costs, and provides for rapid reaction to create and offer new services.
NFVTime simplifies, accelerates, and automates the lifecycle procedures with Home Calling, Remote Backup and Restore, Remote Upgrade, and Customer-Service management features.
4. NFVTime-SEC, CyberGuard
NFV cyber security solution, protecting the NFV infrastructure against next-generation security vulnerabilities. Based on big data and advanced analytic algorithms.
CyberGuard monitors and protects the NFV network topology, flows and service chaining against unauthorized modifications.
Rich ecosystem for SDN-NFV services including partners and certified hardware and VNFs vendors. Telco Systems certifies and optimizes the offerings of its ecosystem partners to meet high performance and reliability metrics.
Key VNFs include routing, firewall, security, VPN encryption, WAN optimization, SD-WAN, unified communications, anti-spyware, content filtering and IDS/IPS from leading VNF vendors such as SilverPeak, Fortinet, Check Point, Netrounds, Certes, Juniper, Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, NEC/Netcracker, 6Wind, Trend Micro and Riverbed.
uCPE flexible, configurable platforms from a broad leading hardware vendors such as Advantech, Dell, Cisco-UCS, AAEON, Lanner, SuperMicro and Telco Systems.
