Telco Systems, the leading provider of innovative SDN & NFV and multi-service Carrier Ethernet 2.0 and MPLS edge access solutions announced today that it has been awarded a significant contract to be the sole supplier for the delivery of a leading-edge cyber-security solution to a government defense ministry. Initially worth $3.7M, Telco Systems expects accumulated orders to increase to over $10M by 2017, with a total value estimated by the customer of approximately $20M over the next five years.
Telco Systems was awarded the long-term contract following a rigorous proof-of-concept (POC) program conducted over a two-year period in which its solution was deemed the best-of-breed among its competitors. The cyber-security solution, based on the company's premium 10G networking platforms and Celare's proprietary software, will be deployed in two stages in Q4 2015 and Q1 2016.
