The combination of the company’s Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certified solutions, along with Intel processors will provide highly innovative and open network edge solutions. In addition, Telco Systems’ support of NETCONF protocols and the company's roadmap towards OpenFlow creates an innovative and future-proof solution.

“We are very excited to join the Intel® Network Builders program,” commented Nir Halachmi, Director of Strategic Product Management and Innovation. “These ecosystems are essential to the service provider market to unlock the openness and innovation in their networks. It will surely help create joint solutions and cooperation between the members and the service providers.”
