Frost and Sullivan Spotlights TelcoBridges’ "Intelligent Edge" for Virtual Network Functions

Executive Brief Analyzes Intelligent Edge Service Delivery Strategy and Benefits

Montreal, Canada: May 20, 2019TelcoBridges, the leading designer and manufacturer of carrier-grade virtual session border controller software and Tmedia VoIP gateways, today announced that it has been featured in the Intelligent Edge Executive Brief by industry analyst firm Frost and Sullivan.

The brief outlines the benefits to service providers of moving key virtual network functions to the edge of their network utilizing the ETSI NFV architecture and universal customer premises equipment (uCPE). As the brief explains, the intersection of cost-effective uCPE equipment and ETSI’s NFV architecture enables delivery of network functions at the true edge of service provider networks. This creates opportunities for service providers to leverage Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), including TelcoBridges FreeSBC and ProSBC, to enable new services at the edge of their network on a “pay-as-you-grow” model.

"The key tenet of the intelligent edge is to easily deploy and manage a virtualized network and communications services," said Michael Brandenburg, Frost and Sullivan Industry Analyst. “When leveraging uCPE and a set of approved VNFs, a service provider can quickly implement and configure any combination of these services tailored to meet exact customer requirements. TelcoBridges' solutions align perfectly with the key tenets of the intelligent edge design approach, and its service provider customers are already taking advantage of the benefits that an intelligent edge gives them.”

“The Frost and Sullivan Executive Brief explains many of the challenges and benefits of the Intelligent Edge strategy,” said TelcoBridges’ Senior Director of Product Marketing Alan Percy. “Our customers have shown how the combination of FreeSBC and ProSBC as a VNF, with its disruptive pricing model is filling a void in the marketplace by delivering network security with SBCs at the very edge of their network.”
