NEXCOM, a supplier of network appliances, and Telco Systems, a provider of edge compute solutions, today announced the availability of a commercial-ready solution for SOHOs and mid-range businesses looking to run virtual workloads at the network edge.
Most business processes and services today run through the cloud. From work from home and data storage services to accessing company servers and sensitive data protection, these processes depend on edge devices that connect to the company’s network. To support new business models driven by digital transformation, IT teams need advanced tools for deploying and running services and applications at the network edge, as well as simplifying management, security and maintenance of edge devices.
The joint NEXCOM-Telco Systems offering is based on NEXCOM’s DTA 1164W, a 5G-ready desktop uCPE, pre-installed with Telco Systems’ Edgility smart edge computing software. With full support for 5G/IoT connectivity, this solution comes ready to support a wide range of cloud native deployments, while its flexible configuration easily adapts to today’s dynamic IT environments.
NEXCOM’s DTA 1164W uCPE is ideally suited to meet the requirements of SOHO and mid-range enterprises. Its I/O interface features eight Ethernet ports for physical network connectivity to multiple devices, together with an additional wireless route. This uCPE supports Wi-Fi 5/6, 4G LTE, and high-speed reliable 5G connectivity using the Thales Cinterion® MV31-W IoT modem card, which can be operated and managed via Edgility.
“Based on our successful long-term partnership with Telco Systems, we are onboarding their edge compute software onto our 5G uCPE,” said Allan Chiu, VP of Network & Communication Solutions at NEXCOM. “This market-ready solution with pre-installed software suits those of our customers who are seeking an easy-to-deploy product for automating edge device management for SD-WAN networks.”
Edgility provides enterprises with a simple and easy-to-use toolset to deploy, manage, and operate multiple virtual services/functions on up to thousands of edge devices at multiple sites. Zero-touch provisioning enables deploying new services (or sites) in a matter of minutes – rather than days – without the need for technical personnel on-site. This smart edge computing platform comprises two components: Edgility OS, a high-performance and small footprint operating system, and Edgility Central, a cloud-based Management and Orchestration (MANO) system.
“As small and medium-sized businesses move business services to the edge as part of their digital transformation initiatives, their IT teams must adapt on the fly to enable fast deployment of new virtual workloads. Our joint offering with NEXCOM offers businesses an agile, cost-efficient solution to simplify the deployment and management of edge devices while reducing operational costs,” said Ariel Efrati, CEO of Telco Systems.
