In 2017, the hype and buzz around software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN), virtual customer premises equipment (vCPE) and universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) reached new highs. SD-WAN is one of the hottest topics on SDxCentral and represents one of the pre-eminent use cases for software-defined networking (SDN) technology.

The 2017 SD-WAN and Virtual Edge report focuses on how the enterprise edge is being upgraded with SDN technology that is more flexible, intelligent and agile than the past model of specialized proprietary equipment, including branch-office routers. It will also report on market drivers and adoption rates, as well as the results of our 2017 SD-WAN and Virtual Edge Report survey.

The findings of this report include:

  • The need and drivers behind SD-WAN
  • Overview of architectural approaches to SD-WAN, vCPE/uCPE and managed SD-WAN
  • Top features that end users are looking for in SD-WAN services
  • Key use cases being deployed today
  • Profiles of uCPE, vCPE, SD-WAN solutions in the market, including key features available today

B4N vCPE, which had been included in the SDxCentral’s report, is an end-to-end solution for Communications Service Providers that helps them to extend product offerings portfolio built around Carrier Ethernet (CE) services with value-added virtual network services. The solution based on Brain4Net’s primary product – B4N Service Platform. Brain4Net’s approach assumes that vCPE is not just VNF in the Cloud or On-Premise device. It’s the comprehensive CSP service that engages connectivity in Metro Network, physical and virtual network infrastructure within Data Center, Cloud environment, and Lifecycle Service Orchestration.

Leveraging both SDN and NFV technologies, Brain4Net’s solution enables CSP to implement the agile and fully abstracted network and virtualization environment (named Network-as-a-Platform) for quick deployment of any vendor vCPE VNFs or Open Source solutions
