TPx Selects ADVA for Edge Device Innovation
LOS ANGELES, August 26, 2019 — Premier managed services provider TPx Communications announced it has selected ADVA Ensemble software to help power its new ReadyEdge uCPE platform. The software will enable TPx to quickly and easily deploy and manage multiple dynamic virtual network functions (VNFs), such as its managed SD-WAN and Firewall products, on a single dedicated hardware device at customer sites.
TPx currently delivers unified communications, managed IT, network security and network connectivity to more than 53,000 customer locations. With ADVA’s Ensemble software and ReadyEdge uCPE platform, TPx clients can look forward to an enhanced customer experience, faster provisioning and simpler deployments, as well as quicker reconfiguration of service changes.
“With this solution, TPx will consolidate a number of appliances into a single service platform based on an open, white box uCPE architecture that is field-proven,” said Jared Martin, Vice President, MSx Managed Services at TPx. “We will be able to support today’s services such as SD-WAN and firewalls at more flexible cost points than we can with dedicated appliances. We will also be able to offer our customers new services delivered dynamically and on demand, without having to change the hardware. That gives our customers the agility and responsiveness they need.”
The TPx managed hosting service leverages a number of products from the Ensemble suite, including Ensemble Orchestrator, Ensemble Virtualization Director and Ensemble Connector.
“Service providers and their customers are embracing cloud technologies for networking,” said James Buchanan, General Manager, Edge Cloud, ADVA. “They need openness and choice, but they also need a solution that is optimized for the far edge of the network. We answer that need with an open solution that includes a full set of field-tested operational features, supporting ease of deployment at a global scale.”
