Pave the way for vCPE with SDN and NFV  

Telecom and cable service providers began commercial rollouts of virtual customer premise equipment (vCPE) products this year, after several years of successful lab tests and customer trials. Early reports from the field are encouraging and we should see large-scale deployments later this year.

Software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) technologies make it possible for operators to remotely update equipment and add new services more easily. For example, a user who experiences poor streaming video quality from the cloud can now upgrade his service delivery with just a few quick clicks.

The benefits are clear: users receive services on-demand without long term contracts or commitments, while operators circumvent the need to add additional infrastructure.

The 64-bit QorIQ LS1043A communication processors offer a powerful, yet flexible platform for vCPE developers. In this video, Senior Product Manager Piotr Weglicki discusses how you can implement QorIQ technology to offer both a small footprint and low power consumption in cutting-edge vCPE applications.
