    Benefits of the Cloud CPE Centralized Deployment Model

    Use of traditional hardware-based customer premises equipment (CPE) requires dedicated network devices and proprietary software. Ordering, obtaining, and installing the equipment requires a significant amount of time. In addition, trained staff must be available to configure and maintain the equipment. This model is expensive, particularly for small and medium enterprises. Moving from traditional hardware-based CPE to the Cloud CPE Centralized Deployment Model offers opportunities for service providers and their enterprise customers to save time, save money, and increase convenience.

    Using the Cloud CPE Centralized Deployment Model, service providers can:

    • Quickly introduce new services.
    • Dynamically update existing services that customers are using.
    • Deliver customized services.
    • Quickly expand services offerings into new sites and enterprises.
    • Offer network services based on virtualized network functions (VNFs) from multiple vendors.
    • Reduce capital expenditure (CAPEX) through use of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) servers and VNFs instead of dedicated network devices.
    • Reduce operating expenses (OPEX) through faster and easier release of network services.

    Customers can use the Customer Portal or other OSS/BSS systems to quickly and easily:

    • Add new sites to the Cloud CPE Centralized Deployment Model.
    • Add new services for specific sites and for the enterprise.
    • Manage services and sites.
