vCPE

vCPE, the Virtual Customer Premise Equipment illustrates the advantages of network functions virtualization (NFV). CPEs are physical devices installed at the end-customer location. They provide connectivity for switching, routing and other functions; security as firewall and IPS; and gateway functionality as session border controllers, WAN acceleration and NAT/DHCP functionality. 

Problem
L3 service delivery requires two dedicated devices (L3 CPE and L2 demarcation device). This in turn translates into Management complexity; long time to revenues and high costs

Our Solution
Telco Systems virtual CPE solution provides edge vCPE security and gateway functionality and complies with carrier grade service level requirements of MEF services, CE 2.0/MPLS and OAM. 

The solution is based on wire speed packet forwarding with sophisticated acceleration technology for VNFs. Carriers can chose between 1GE or 10GE-based devices, each with multiple ports. The solution is integrated with best-of-breed VNFs and open architecture enables rapid integration with new ones.

Customer Benefits
  • Rapid service attachments – new services are just a click away from provisioning. Service providers and/or end-customers can deploy new services in minutes as vCPE functions, compared to days or weeks for deployment of dedicated function appliances.
  • 40% CAPEX saving – multi-purpose vCPE devices reduce the need for dedicated hardware and reduces associated costs.
  • 80% OPEX saving – installation, management and support of VNFs are performed remotely instead of deployment and integration of hardware devices. The same teams provide support to all customers.
  • Dynamic service chaining – advanced service chaining of vCPE virtual functions breaks the inline architecture under which all traffic traverses all network functions. With the vCPE only relevant flows are sent to each virtual function, reducing demands on functions and increasing availability
  • Expediting time to market of new services – new services can be integrated into vCPE NFV infrastructure in days and made available for business users. In addition, it enables CSPs to quickly adapt to new customer requirements.
Telco Systems with the OME solution provide a lean migration path to vCPE services. A hybrid vCPE device approach enables CSPs to maintain carrier grade standards with the switching sub-system, while providing vCPE functionality via the Intel x86 NFV sub-system. Once the technology matures and performance improves, the entire vCPE will be based on a pure Intel x86 platform.
