This webinar–moderated by Light Reading Editor-at-Large Carol Wilson– covers one of the hottest topics in the network performance assurance market: operator opportunities and challenges associated with deploying virtualized customer premises equipment (vCPE). Panelists: Mike Sapien, Principal Analyst, Enterprise, Ovum and Michael Rezek, Accedian VP Business Development and Strategic Partnerships.
Enterprise vCPE strategies have clear benefits: reducing cost and complexity, improving scalability, accelerating time to revenue and enabling customer self-care and new services/revenue streams.
While the benefits are obvious, the way to realize them often ignites debate, and there are many deployment options available that take different approaches to where virtual network functions should sit, how service quality is attained and guaranteed and how still-developing standards around orchestration and management will impact what can be deployed today.
This webinar brings together the expertise gained and hard lessons learned from hundreds of operators at different deployment stages, serving a wide range of business customers.
