While legacy enterprise networking solutions consist of proprietary and closed hardware-based appliances from single suppliers, network functions virtualization (NFV)-based vE-CPE allows for a logical and flexible separation of hardware and software. Vertical silos with vendor lock-in are transformed into a flexible mix-and-match approach that allows service providers to gain maximum efficiency and flexibility by procuring hardware and software optimized for target use cases.

However, in a fast-moving competitive environment, the time from service evaluation to development and final deployment needs to be accelerated. CSPs require the ability to correctly size the compute, offload, memory and network throughput needed to sustain changing CPE workloads and network traffic types in the white box vE-CPE devices that they will eventually deploy.

This webinar will address the drivers, vE-CPE architectures, key use cases such as SD-WAN and discuss the implementation and test strategies that are vital to achieve successful vE-CPE implementations.
