Allot Virtual CPE Solution Brief
With the ongoing advancement of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networks (SDN), virtual customer premises equipment (vCPE) has emerged as one of the leading ways for communication service providers (CSPs) to transition enterprise and VPN customers to cloud networking platforms. And it can be done today. This transition promises a substantial reduction in the costs associated with proprietary hardware deployed on-premise and ultimately will enable operators to create new revenue streams and service upsell opportunities using virtual network functions (VNFs). A primary focus of vCPE is in the realm of CSP services offered to business and residential customers. In this paper, we will focus on enterprise CPE, including use cases for small and medium businesses.
