Enterprises and service providers can take advantage of the opportunities presented through moving to the cloud without compromising on performance and security by harnessing universal CPE (uCPE). uCPE can host virtual network functions (VNFs), including firewalls, encryption, SD-WAN and other services.
Michael Heffner and the BCE panel will discuss how to go about choosing the right uCPE platform, how open and flexible they are and how easy they are to deploy as well as whether it is better to use generic or branded VNFs.
