Telco Systems and Stem Connect Collaborate to Accelerate the Rollout of Service Virtualization on Telecommunications Networks
Telco Systems, a leading provider of innovative Network Edge solutions for communications infrastructure and service management, and Stem Connect, a leading supplier of ultra-reliable business connectivity solutions, announced today a joint offering for a service virtualization solution in the United Kingdom, France, and South Africa. The new service will be built on Telco Systems' fast edge technology and Stem Connect's expertise in providing enterprise-grade networking solutions in these regions.

This strategic collaboration was formed after successful testing of the integrated solution in accordance with particular market needs, which included Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) such as SD-WAN and Firewall. Customers will get access to the latest Edge Computing technology as well as a localized, field-proven deployment capability. With enterprises looking for quick and efficient solutions that reduce time to market, the focus of this collaboration is on pre-packaged technology and a streamlined delivery and service approach. The solution goes beyond connection and security because Telco Systems' edge device allows other applications to be installed on the device at a low cost, allowing Stem Connect to deploy additional applications required by the enterprise customer.

Third-party VNFs and new white box devices can be set up and fully operational in minutes thanks to Telco Systems' virtualization technology. This technology allows telcos, managed service providers, and governments to rapidly deploy new VNF-based business services with centralized administration and ongoing orchestration. Telco Systems' Edge computing solution also enables MSPs to operate on Intel or Arm-based devices while using native Cloud environments for network management and operations.

The adoption of cloud services poses dilemmas for companies at every stage of their journey. At the outset, all-ornothing solutions can force IT to commit prematurely to a single vendor, roadmap or timeframe. As more cloud services enter the environment, complexity rises for users and IT alike, as users confront a fragmented experience, and IT struggles to secure, monitor and manage it all.
