New York, Sept. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Global Virtual Customer Premises Equipment Market Size, Share & Industry Trends Analysis Report By Vertical, By Organization Size, By Deployment Type, By Component, By Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022 – 2028" -
at the customer’s premises. To replace heavy-duty CPEs with lightweight ones and move common operations and sophisticated traffic processing into POP (points-of-presence) or a centralized Datacenter, network devices are virtualized utilizing the ETSI NFV framework.

It may provide numerous services to lines of business that need various physical devices from various vendors due to the vCPE solution. The technology speeds up service activation while providing enormous CapEx and OpEx savings for hundreds of remote locations. The most popular use case for network function emulation has come to be the vCPE solution.

To dynamically alter the capacity in response to client demand, several service providers (CSP, MSP), system integrators, and businesses (with distributed locations like Retail Branch offices, and ATMs) have embraced vCPE. Enterprises can receive network services including routing, firewall security, and connection for virtual private networks by using software rather than specialized hardware through the use of virtual customer premises equipment (vCPE).

By virtualizing CPE, service providers can significantly streamline and speed up the delivery of services by remotely setting and managing devices and enabling customers to order new services or make on-demand changes to existing ones. Customer premises equipment (CPE) is often comprised of specialized hardware devices owned by providers and installed at branch office locations. Deploying additional services can be time-consuming and costly because providers must dispatch network specialists onsite to deliver and set up CPE.
