Join Azhar Sayeed, Red Hat chief architect, for a webinar discussion of the most popular use cases for network functions virtualization (NFV): vEPC, a mobile-core network system that accommodates LTE access systems, and virtual customer premise equipment (vCPE), which is a way to deliver network services such as routing, firewall security and virtual private network connectivity to enterprises by using software rather than dedicated hardware devices.
vEPC and vCPE are pursued by different types of providers: vCPE is considered by wireline and cable providers to drive down costs for residential and business services, while vEPC is of interest to mobile providers for various services in the area of Internet of Things (IoT) and to scale LTE and A-LTE deployments as the foundation for 5G is put in place.
The webinar covers a variety of topics related to vEPC and vCPE, including:
- Driving down cost while providing flexibility of services
- Scaling to customers’ needs
- Understanding performance requirements of VMs
