Telco Systems, a BATM company (LSE: BVC, TASE: BATM) and a leading provider of CE 2.0 multi-service Carrier Ethernet and MPLS edge access solutions for mobile backhaul, business Ethernet services and cloud networking, is pleased to announce E-Access Plus, an expansion of their E-Access and provider exchange solutions enabling flexible external network-to-network interfacing (E-NNI) for their customer install base.
As one of the first companies that successfully passed all types of MEF CE 2.0 service certifications, including Access EPL and Access-EVPL, Telco Systems expands its exchange and wholesale offering with its newly announced E-Access Plus solution. Telco Systems’ E-Access Plus hybrid Carrier Ethernet & MPLS devices can be collocated at carrier hotel locations to provide immediate MEF CE 2.0 E-Access service compliance without the need for costly fork lift upgrades of existing legacy switch and router platforms. Telco Systems’ E-Access Plus capable devices offer switching capacities from 5Gbps up to 1Tbps and support thousands of MEF compliant services per device.
Exchange and wholesale service providers are challenged with business opportunities that require them to provide bandwidth outside of their coverage area (i.e. off-net). They are faced with the option of partnering with various providers and need the capability of supplementing their coverage across broad geographies.
E-Access Plus enables adjustable E-NNI to address the evolving challenges of the exchange application, including multi-tagging technology, any traffic level manipulation, optimized quality of service (QoS), and automated provisioning of access network interconnections. “With E-Access Plus, providers are able to benefit from operation simplicity, fast time to market, simple manageability, and highly flexible edge solutions,” stated Moshe Shimon, VP of Product Management for Telco Systems.
In order to establish this type of interconnect, Telco Systems’ E-Access Plus portfolio should be used for its flexibility and scalability, combined with the powerful service management system, EdgeGenie. This promotes a superior total cost of ownership by using EdgeGenie to accelerate network planning, deployment, ongoing management of new services, modifiable bandwidth management and service assurance via robust, integrated operations, administration & maintenance (OAM) monitoring and testing tools. Moreover, it has been fully tested and field proven using Telco Systems’ T-Marc and T-Metro product lines, and allows for simple, standardized deployment of new services. This powerful combination provides intelligent and remotely managed network connectivity.
“Telco Systems’ E-Access Plus and provider exchange solutions enable us to get to our customers with flexible E-NNI capabilities and off-net services, empowering us to optimize our network to gain more revenues," said Ande Hornig, Principal at Metro Optical Solutions. "By leveraging Telco Systems' CE 2.0 compliant, end-to-end Ethernet product portfolio, Metro Optical is able to offer their customers new services at a rapid pace, allowing for optimal user experience and assured SLAs."
Telco Systems’ T-Metro 8006 is currently used at various provider exchange sites in the US market as an E-NNI off-net aggregator. Along with the T-Metro 8006, Telco Systems offers a complete provider Exchange solution through their Carrier Ethernet aggregation and demarcation portfolio.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

Recently announced Azure Data Lake addresses the big data 3V challenges; volume, velocity and variety. It is one more storage feature in addition to blobs and SQL Azure database. Azure Data Lake (should have been Azure Data Ocean IMHO) is really omnipotent. Just look at the key capabilities of Azure Data Lake:

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...

As the world moves towards more DevOps and microservices, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, NetFlix and so on, is at the heart of Cloud Foundry - a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS) that is IaaS agnostic and supports vCloud, OpenStack and AWS. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Raghavan "Rags" Srinivas, an Architect/Developer Evangeli...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated a...

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
