Telco Systems and AdcareIT have jointly announced a multiyear engagement for AdcareIT to deploy managed secure SD-WAN services using an integrated NFV edge solution from Telco Systems and Clavister.
AdcareIT targets SMEs and large enterprises across Kenya with its new managed SD-WAN and cybersecurity services.
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.
“These new connectivity and cybersecurity services are the initial steps of our strategic plan to expand our service portfolio and grow our customer base,” explained Tobias Seda, Managing Director of AdcareIT. “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 virtualized services without replacing the existing hardware.”
Telco Systems’ NFVTime provides a complete environment for quick service deployments with centralized management and ongoing orchestration while Clavister’s secure SD-WAN VNF is an IT administrator managing security infrastructure for multisite customers to simplify their deployment and maintenance routines while saving cost.
The integrated NFV edge solution from Telco Systems and Clavister supports zero-touch provisioning that minimizes service delivery logistics and eliminates the need for costly on-site technicians, enabling AdcareIT to design, deploy, and monitor services for multiple customers operating across multiple locations in one centralized 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. “Working with our great partner Telco Systems on its NFVTime uCPE makes all that possible.”
“We are proud to be working with Adcare IT on this exciting project and expanding our well-established presence in East Africa as well as strengthening our partnership with Clavister,” explained Ariel Efrati, CEO at Telco Systems. “As a managed service provider in an emerging economy, AdcareIT exemplifies the logistic and business benefits of providing secure SD-WAN services on our NFVTime uCPE solution.”
