AdcareIT, a leading provider of outsourced technology services, has selected Telco Systems and Clavister to roll out integrated NFV-based secure SD-WAN services in Kenya. AdcareIT is considered as one of the fastest-growing managed service providers (MSPs) in Kenya. The newly launched SD-WAN and cybersecurity services from the AdcareIT targets Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) as well as large enterprises across the country.

The combined efforts are from Clavister’s connectivity and cybersecurity virtual network functions (VNFs) running on Telco Systems’ NFVTime uCPE solution. Reducing entry barriers and expanding the addressable market of AdcareIT, the Telco Systems-Clavister solution gives a flexible, pay-as-you-grow subscription model.

NFVTime from Telco Systems is an open plug-and-play virtualization suite. With centralized management and ongoing orchestration, the suite is capable of providing an entirely new surrounding for the deployment of quick services. The NFVi-OS is the only operating system from NFVTime that can run on both x86 and Arm-based devices. A secure SD-WAN VNF from Clavister not only helps in cost-cutting but also supports IT administrators in managing security infrastructure for multisite customers by simplifying their deployment and maintenance routines.

“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,” were the words of Tobias Seda, Managing Director of AdcareIT.

The Telco Systems and Clavister integrated NFV edge system facilitate zero-touch provisioning that minimizes the complexities of service delivery and removes the need for expensive on-site technicians. Based on low-cost, high-performance Arm-based hardware architecture, this collaborative approach allows AdcareIT to develop, implement, and control multiple customer services in one unified management system across various locations.

“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.
