• Virtual CPE

Description

The current architecture of CPE like eRouters and the Wi-Fi gateways on the customer premise presents a number of challenges for operators, because an eRouter is a NAT function, behind the operator can’t see or influence the behavior of delivering services. A new architecture is needed to move the IP network logic or service logic that is locked in the CPE’s Wi-Fi access point/Router to the service aware edge cloud. Benu Networks’ Virtual Service Edge (VSE) platform achieves this by virtualizing the eRouter function in a multi-tenant virtualization platform that has been designed to aggregate large scale virtual CPE/routers. The SDN/NFV approach separates the Data Plane Function from the Control Plane Function to virtualize CPE services. Open programmable interfaces are leveraged from the Control Plane toward the Cloud and OSS/BSS systems. The VSE is based on an SDN implementation to virtualize CPE, addressing scale and service agility for Network Operators delivering Cloud-based managed services for Residential and B2B customer segments.
