AdcareIT is deploying managed secure SD-WAN services using an integrated NFV edge solution from Telco Systems and Clavister.
The joint solution features Clavister’s connectivity and cybersecurity VNFs running on Telco Systems’ NFVTime uCPE solution. To reduce barriers of entry and expand the addressable market for AdcareIT, the Telco Systems-Clavister solution has been provided on a flexible, pay-as-you-grow subscription model.
AdcareIT is one of the fastest growing managed service providers (MSPs) in Kenya. The company is targeting SMEs and large enterprises across the country with its new managed SD-WAN and cybersecurity services.
Telco Systems’ NFVTime is an open plug-and-play virtualisation suite. It provides a complete environment for quick service deployments with centralised management and ongoing orchestration. NFVTime’s operating system is the only available NFVi-OS that can run on both x86 and Arm-based devices. Clavister’s secure SD-WAN VNF helps IT administrators managing security infrastructure for multisite customers to simplify their deployment and maintenance routines, while saving cost.
Tobias Seda, Managing Director of AdcareIT, said: “With this joint solution from Telco Systems and Clavister, we gain a significant competitive advantage and can quickly deploy cost efficient SD-WAN and security services in a low risk framework and expand to new virtualised services without replacing the existing hardware.”
The integrated NFV edge solution from Telco Systems and Clavister supports zero touch provisioning that minimises service delivery logistics and eliminates the need for costly on-site technicians. Running on low cost, high performance Arm-based hardware architecture, this joint solution enables AdcareIT to design, deploy and monitor services for multiple customers operating across multiple locations in one centralised management solution.
“This is a very exciting development in terms of both the deployment for our security offering for SD-WAN, but also our belief that service providers will be the predominant form to deliver SD-WAN to customers cost effectively and with minimal effort,” said Przemek Sienkiewicz, Chief Strategy Officer at Clavister.
