Telco Systems and 6WIND introduce vRouter on open uCPE

November 10, 2017 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Telco Systems and 6WIND have introduced the first vRouter on an open uCPE system with support for both Intel x86 and Arm architectures.

The design of this vRouter combines NFVTime from Telco Systems with Turbo Router from 6WIND. The joint system will create an open and agile service delivery platform, allowing service providers to rapidly launch and remotely manage managed router services on a standalone basis or as part of service chains that include additional virtual network functions.

NFVTime is a carrier-class NFVi-OS running on white box appliances. NFVTime includes a broad portfolio of certified VNFs, including SD-WAN, vRouter, vFirewall, vProbe, vSecurity and more, that are centrally managed and orchestrated from the network edge. With NFVTime, any new VNF service can be remotely launched at any time with zero touch, plug-and-play provisioning.

6WIND Turbo Router is a high performance, ready-to-use software network appliance deployed in bare metal environments or as a virtual machine. With 12 million packets per second per core of routing performance, Turbo Router provides the performance of hardware networking equipment with the ease of deployment and flexibility of software.

The new combined system from Telco Systems and 6WIND will be completely hardware agnostic and runs on both Intel x86 and Arm architectures. By supporting multiple technologies and multiple vendors, this system gives service providers more flexibility and greater cost savings with high performance over low cost hardware, such as Intel ATOM and Arm/NXP devices.
