uCPE is a general purpose platform that integrates compute, storage and networking on a commodity, off-the-shelf server, allowing it to provide network services such as SD WAN and firewall, as virtual functions to any site on a network. uCPE is the equivalent of a “Cloud for network services”, but basically at the customer premise. As virtualization is becoming more commonplace across the industry, general purpose processors in customer-edge equipment has grown with it. Simply put, this means where once networks would rely on, or be limited by, specialized hardware to deliver services – a router, a firewall, a WAN optimizer – either some or all of that functionality is now delivered virtually as software. Now all these different Virtual Network Functions can run on a universal CPE, placed in a central or branch location.
