MANSFIELD, Mass. and LD, Israel, October 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Telco Systems, a leading provider of innovative network edge solutions for managing communications infrastructure and services, and AudioCodes, a leading provider of productivity software, products and solutions communications solutions for the digital workplace, today announced the launch of a collaboration solution that meets the growing demand from communications service providers and enterprises looking for a unified approach to delivering integrated access , advanced computing and VoIP capabilities that are simple and cost-effective to deploy and operate.

The solution enables service providers to manage both advanced communication services and value-added applications on a single edge computing device, greatly simplifying deployment and ongoing operation. Combining state-of-the-art computing capabilities with communication services such as xDSL, LTE, fiber and copper access, IP PBX and ISDN equipment, is a huge step forward for businesses looking for a unified ICT platform. Beyond reducing CAPEX and OPEX, the single device also accelerates business flexibility to utilize new services on the platform.

The solution is powered by Telco Systems Edgility, a proven computing platform that will be installed on AudioCodes devices, either prior to shipment or remotely at the customer site. With an ultra-low footprint, Edgility’s operating system runs on the edge device and leaves significant computing resources for any virtual service, without the need for expensive resources. AudioCodes customers will be able to leverage the well-established AudioCodes Mediant 800 Multi-Service Business Router (MSBR) devices to run any IT application, including SD-WAN and security, making it a universal CPE (uCPE) ready to be deployed. Both companies are reporting strong marketing demand for this combination.

To increase deployment flexibility and network resiliency, the joint solution comes with a variety of WAN interfaces, including fiber, copper, and wireless (with built-in LTE modem), which can be used simultaneously. On the local network, the company will be able to manage a unified communications platform supporting both local PBXs and IP-PBXs, legacy ISDN telephony, etc. The solution is managed by a feature-rich cloud-based management system. The centralized service orchestrator supports zero-touch deployments and full lifecycle automation.

“The Network Edge is clearly the future of virtualized enterprise services. We are proud and excited to partner with a global leader like AudioCodes and enable their customers around the world to grow into edge computing,” said Ariel Efrati, CEO of Telco Systems. “Our collaboration with AudioCodes will significantly expand the market footprint for both companies with a stronger market presence and wider global coverage, while allowing telcos and enterprises to leverage the vast experience of network of our two companies and to quickly benefit from the synergy of our advanced capabilities.”

“Our service provider customers are looking to enable enterprises to deploy new and advanced services and applications,” said Shaul Weissman, vice president of business development for AudioCodes. “Our field-proven uCPEs are now powered by Telco Systems’ intelligent and lean operating system which will make the solution even more flexible to connect across multiple WANs, integrate on-premises voice equipment and ultimately enable these businesses to modernize safely and quickly.”
