Telco Systems, a subsidiary of BATM, has released the first product in its Edgility ecosystem of networking products and services based on the Group’s network function virtualisation (NFV) operating system. Called Edgility OS, this enables data processing to take place at the network edge, nearer to the end device, for faster response times and reduced bandwidth.
The first packaged product in the Edgility ecosystem is the Fast SD-WAN & firewall package for branch/home offices. This removes the need for a resilient but costly dedicated MPLS or SD-WAN line at the core of the network, leveraging multiple lines and the compute power of the edge device instead.
The Edgility Fast SD-WAN & Firewall comprises a small, rugged device pre-packaged with Edgility OS and integrated with Clavister’s SD-WAN and class A firewall, which can be deployed at a central office and branch offices and employee homes.
Telco Systems is targeting the solution at service providers and distributors who can use it to provide customers with a secure access service edge (SASE) solution that is low cost and quick to provision. Gartner predicts that by 2025 at least 60% of enterprises will have explicit strategies and timelines for SASE adoption encompassing user, branch and edge access, up from 10% in 2020.
