Dr Zvi Marom, Chief Executive Officer of BATM, said: “We are delighted to have achieved this first milestone under our joint development agreement with Arm to offer a full ecosystem of VNF services that are optimised to run on Arm’s architecture and to be used by Arm partners.”
“FatPipe is a leading provider of SD-WAN, which is vital to today’s enterprises, and we are very pleased that they have chosen to partner with us. This joint offering will enable operators to easily and rapidly launch SD-WAN services over Intel and Arm architectures, being optimised for Arm, as well as any additional VNF services.”
“We look forward to working together to deliver this market-leading solution and to continuing to expand our partners for the provision of further VNF services.”
BATM will also be able to extend and enhance its NFV offering to provide a more wide-ranging and competitive solution, as well as expanding its market presence of its joint venture partner and its sales and marketing resources.
Dr Ragula Bhaskar, CEO of FatPipe Networks, said: “This partnership and joint offering emphasises the need for service providers to have a fully integrated SD-WAN VNF combined with a high-performance open uCPE to virtually deploy more network functions to meet the growing requirements of offering new services to business customers.”
