This webinar, presented by ENEA, examines the importance of “openness” and interoperability of SD-WAN solutions with a specific focus on uCPE offers.
The service provider is hoping to launch a cost-effective uCPE platform that supports more VNFs along with its SD-WAN early next year.
Achieving standard, commodity uCPEs will be a longer journey than anticipated.
The NFV vendor says it can demonstrate more than 30 percent cost savings on Arm-based hardware. Telco Systems now has three different manufacturers for Arm boxes.
“The path forward is an open platform,” said Adva’s Prayson Pate, adding that an open platform will meet the full-potential of an agile and flexible SD-WAN.
Vodafone said Juniper’s Contrail Service Orchestrator is a key part of the platform because it provides customers with a self-service portal.
The vCPE software market is expected to grow at a 68.3 percent CAGR.
