Edge Networks Metephors Supertrain alusion even more apt when you appreciate that it ended up as Snowpiercer. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCYQtwIwAQ&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DvcGdmh0_toY&ei=YhnJVJS2D8vjoASP7YAY&usg=AFQjCNH9j92bJnDJDqPRlkGIxoHMZpd6tw&sig2=yNcaawCUxn5WaIPFMQ82ew&bvm=bv.84607526,d.cGU

Everyone on the bandwagon One of the main first applications for ALU Nuage platform is virtual CPE.  Juniper has also put quite a bit of work into developing a virtual CPE strategy as well.   Juniper calls it Cloud CPE and I think a lot of the work came out of their collaboration with Colt.

vCPE has another context as well which involves running a mature network OS on a piece of commodity hardware like fanless systems from Lanner and many other vendors.  You still need some hardware at the premise so it is these stripped down boxes basically tunneling traffic to the cloud vendors will need as well.

Re: Edge networks Nice article Mitch. I am currently doing a report and plan some custom research in this area, but I agree it's moving ahead and I expect to see some traction at MWC 2015. 

I also see vCPE and D-NFV as a way to simplify the integration of NFV and SDN.

Edge networks Other edge network technologies, not just CPE, are candidates for getting started with software networks. The keys are to be able to encapsulate from the network as a whole, and for quantifying business value to be a straightforward profit.
