vCPE (Virtualized Customer Premise Equipment) and vPE (Virtualized Provider Edge) promises greater service agility, lower cost, and faster time to market for business and residential services deployments. Service edge routers or provider edge routers deliver business, residential and mobile subscriber services with functions such as BNG, BGP VPNs and Evolved Packet Cores. With the advent of NFV many of these services can be disaggregated and provided through modular virtual network functions with service function chaining which offers great flexibility to compose, deploy and automate services. These can be used to deliver a rich vCPE services such as triple play and IoT to residential and SMB customers while using the virtualized edge routers to provide core business services.
Service Providers are exploring methods
In this talk, Principal architects will share considerations in designing virtual infrastructure to deliver vCPE and vPE based services. The speakers will provide some background on service function chaining, service edge routing, Openstack clouds and discuss virtualized architectures that can solve Service Provider problems to achieve agility and richness of cloud based services
Attendees will learn the service edge routers and how virtualizing the functions through vPE could add greater flexibility, service richness, and faster time to market.
