RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- Overture today announced the introduction of a turnkey network functions virtualization (NFV) solution for virtual managed enterprise CPE (vE-CPE). The pre-integrated vE-CPE Ensemble Solution Pack makes it easier for service providers to create more flexible and cost-effective alternatives to today’s managed business services. The solution pack leverages Overture’s strength in Carrier Ethernet 2.0, with Ensemble OSA NFV orchestration and control software, a set of third-party virtual network functions (VNFs), Overture enablement services, and technical support to create a fully integrated solution.

“In our recent survey of 25 Tier 1 service providers and their NFV strategies, virtual CPE was the top use case identified,” said Lee Doyle, principal analyst, Doyle Research. “Virtualizing the managed business CPE addresses a real and immediate industry pain point. As such, it is has the potential to be hugely disruptive in what is currently a multi-billion-dollar market.”

The first in a series of Ensemble Solution Packs from Overture, the virtual managed Enterprise CPE (vE-CPE) includes a virtual branch office router, VPN and next generation firewall VNFs to support the most popular managed service offerings. Additional pre-integrated VNFs are available as options. Through the Overture Ensemble orchestration and control software, the vE-CPE functions can be deployed in a centralized environment, such as a datacenter or central office, or may be distributed out to virtualization platforms on the customer premise.

“In a growing ecosystem of independent software vendors, communications service providers (CSPs) that want to explore modern virtualization options may be resource-constrained to adequately evaluate all of the choices as well as perform all the required system integration work,” said Mike Aquino, president and CEO, Overture. “The Overture vE-CPE Ensemble Solution Pack provides an open, pre-integrated, fully-supported NFV solution to help them accelerate their enterprise service deployments.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
