Intel-RAD Solution Brief Details an Effective Strategy for uCPE Mass Deployment
Describes How Service Providers Can Overcome Challenges, Reap NFV Benefits
"There is a compelling case for mass deployment of virtualization at the edge and therefore an urgency to overcome deployment challenges, such as white box hardware costs, VNF licensing (eg. vRouter and vFirewall) and secure remote device provisioning with integration into existing NFV managers and orchestrators,"
RAD's vCPE-OS provides all the essential networking capabilities – such as Customer Edge Routing (so there is no need for an additional costly third-party Router VNF), NFVI, and service level assurance. RAD's vCPE-OS' lean footprint allows service providers to conserve white box hardware resources, such as CPU cores, RAM and storage, and to use them for new, revenue-generating value added services. In addition, it utilizes high-performance vector packet processing (VPP), combined with SR-IOV and Intel® QAT acceleration, to ensure customer quality of experience (QoE) by maximizing throughput regardless of packet size.
