Telecom Equipment

The Network Equipment Provider industry is facing increased competition as new players are entering with emerging technologies. There is, thus, a need for existing players to invest in and adopt new technologies such as Software Defined Networking/Network Function Virtualization, cloud, analytics, etc. This can enable them to help telecom operators increase service agility and efficiencies. The new technologies, however, throw up security related challenges. The trend, therefore, is for Network Equipment Providers (NEPs) to invest in ‘zero-trust’ based models for enhanced network security.

CredenceIS helps NEPs to address growth and security challenges through:

  • Engineering services to develop next generation Network and Telecom products across access, edge and core networks
  • System integration, deployment and management of network solutions/elements
  • Extending product life via engineering ownership and support for end-of-life products
  • Technology frameworks, accelerators, Centers of Excellence and strategic partnerships


A router is a networking device, commonly specialized hardware, that forwards data packets between computer networks. This creates an overlay internetwork, as a router is connected to two or more data lines from different networks. When a data packet comes in one of the lines, the router reads the address information in the packet to determine its ultimate destination. Then, using information in its routing table or routing policy, it directs the packet to the next network on its journey. Routers perform the "traffic directing" functions on the Internet. A data packet is typically forwarded from one router to another through the networks that constitute the internetwork until it reaches its destination node.


Most business networks today use switches to connect computers, printers and servers within a building or campus. A switch serves as a controller, enabling networked devices to talk to each other efficiently. Through information sharing and resource allocation, switches save businesses money and increase employee productivity.
