NEW YORK -- Light Reading has published the results of an evaluation of Cloud CPE, a network functions virtualization (NFV) platform developed by Juniper Networks. The test was conducted by leading networking technology test company EANTC, an internationally recognized test center, and was paid for by Light Reading.

EANTC performed a number of tests to evaluate Cloud CPE, which has been designed to simplify the way in which communications service providers (CSPs) can introduce and offer services based on virtual network functions (VNFs) to their enterprise customers and, as a result, develop new business opportunities as well as benefit from new cost efficiencies.

The tests conducted centered around: system deployment and manageability; ease of VNF deployment and service creation; the ability to automate service delivery, lifecycle management, system availability and resiliency; and the capability to support commercial-scale deployments.

"The evaluation results produced by EANTC show that Juniper has clearly thought through the various steps that will make it easier for a network operator to implement its NFV strategy and has then developed its Cloud CPE solution to address those requirements," said Light Reading Editor-in-Chief, Ray Le Maistre. "It is clear that Juniper has identified and developed capabilities to support the key business opportunities that NFV can offer to CSPs, in particular, the customer portal that enables enterprise users to provision and manage the services they want and need -- that's impressive," added Le Maistre.

"In our independent evaluation, we found that Juniper's virtualization portfolio -- including Contrail Networking, Contrail Service Orchestration, Cloud CPE and the vSRX Virtual Firewall -- is well integrated, enabling easily managed, highly available business VPN services at scale," said Carsten Rossenhoevel, Managing Director, EANTC. "Juniper has progressed well to resolve one of the major challenges of virtualization: Abstracting the service provider's provisioning interface from the operational complexity of cloud VPN services and reducing the volume of operator activities by enabling a rich customer self-service portal."

"We are pleased to have worked with Light Reading and EANTC in their study of Cloud CPE in order to demonstrate the capabilities and performance of our solution," said Paul Obsitnik, Vice President of Service Provider Portfolio Marketing at Juniper Networks. "As we continue to work with our Service Provider customers to turn NFV into a commercial reality, testing opportunities such as this are becoming more and more important."

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.
