The strategic partnership between albis-elcon and Telco Systems was established as an outcome of extensive joint testing of this integrated solution according to specific market requirements and will benefit customers with the latest cutting-edge Cloud Computing technologies.
“The transition towards next generation architectures with dynamic service offerings based on virtualized functions requires a network- and solution-oriented approach for which Telco Systems’ innovative virtualization technology is delivering significant value in the Cloud Computing domain,” said Werner Neubauer, CEO of albis-elcon. “Telco Systems is a world leader in its market and large vendors like Arm and CheckPoint have been using its technology inside their products for many years. Our partnership with Telco Systems accelerates the availability of new technologies, new service models for our customers.”
“The Network Edge is clearly the future of virtualized business services and we are already pursuing joint opportunities with albis-elcon at several tier 1 operators in Europe and Latin America,” stated Ariel Efrati, CEO of Telco Systems. “Our collaboration with albis-elcon will greatly expand the market footprint for both companies with stronger market presence and wider global coverage as well as empower telcos and MSPs to leverage the vast networking experience of our two companies and quickly benefit from offering new virtualized business services.”
