    Hardware and Software Tested in the Cloud CPE Solution

    The Cloud CPE solution requires commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) node servers or servers, specific network devices, and specific software versions. These sections lists the hardware and software that have been tested for the Cloud CPE solution.

    Node Servers and Servers Tested in the Cloud CPE Solution

    The Cloud CPE solution uses COTS node servers or servers for both the centralized and distributed deployments for the following functions:

    • Contrail Service Orchestration central and regional servers
    • Contrail Analytics servers
    • Contrail Cloud Platform in the centralized deployment

    Table 1 lists the node servers and servers that have been tested for these functions in the Cloud CPE solution.
