Tomorrow’s CPE: the Wimbledon of network virtualization?

tomorrow s cpe the wimbledon of network virtualization

 

Despite the industry’s charge toward network virtualization, the need for customers to connect their routers to non-Ethernet legacy connections is not going away. Couple this with the fact that a bunch of emerging network functions require an on-prem appliance, and the virtualized ‘CPE of the future’ starts to feel, well, really rather physical. So, is the CPE the Wimbledon of the network; ever-present, resistant to change, but perhaps also capable of surprising us all with its innovations?

NFV: Time to Get Back to (Virtual) Reality, for the Sake of the Operators

Pravin Mirchandani, CMO, OneAccess, calls for 'plausible NFV' amid a world of ill-judged proof-of-concepts.

OneAccess - SDN/NFV

NFV has been voraciously hyped and with good reason; there is much to get excited about. The potential benefits to operators and communication service providers (CSPs) of enabling a virtualized and service oriented network environment are vast: increased network flexibility, additional security, reductions in network OPEX/CAPEX, dynamic capacity adaptation according to network needs and, perhaps most crucial of all, reduced time to market for new, revenue generating network services that can combat declining ARPUs.  NFV really could be the silver bullet that operators and CSPs have been looking for.

SDN/NFV – Is it the breakthrough CSPs need to help level the OTT playing field?

I think that it is fair to say that the business communications services market is going through one of its most challenging periods at the moment as CSPs struggle to come to terms with the demand for faster, more reliable and feature-rich services from their customers, whilst also dealing with increased competition and the inevitable pressure this puts on prices. Although this is a typical and predictable scenario in what is a rapidly maturing tech-based market, it means that service providers cannot afford to assume that their customers will continue to renew their contracts out of a sense of loyalty, no matter what.
