Whitepaper: Minimizing footprint to maximize uCPE value with Enea and Lanner

High Throughput, Low Footprint, and Low Latencies on Cost-effective uCPEs

The emergence of lower-cost, high volume white boxes along with standardized software APIs increases supplier choice and reduces risks. In order to maximize profits, CSPs need to use the most cost effective solutions on the customer premise, and increasingly, they are using universal customer premise equipment (uCPE).

High Performance and Exceptional Power Efficiency

uCPE simplifies customer site deployments by replacing dedicated appliances with universal platforms of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) servers, extending cloud-centric technologies all the way to the access part of the telco network.

Service providers can offer on-demand deployment, and choice from a range of VNFs and VNF vendors. In addition to the agile and flexible deployment benefits, the uCPE software platform provides a consistent management interface regardless of the selected network functions, and service-function-chaining of the subscribed VNFs.

uCPE provides on-demand zero touch deployment of multiple network functions, plus a virtualization software platform in a cost effective, single-box COTS systems.

The combination of Enea and Lanner technologies ensures a streamlined solution that optimizes networking performance and provides minimal footprint for both the platform and VNFs, resulting in very high compute density. It also provides a foundation for uCPE agility and innovation, reducing costs and computing complexity at the network edge.
