Business Cases for Virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE) for end users

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) intends to leverage on recent results in computing infrastructure virtualization and network infrastructure programmability ("cloud" and "SDN" to use the buzzwords) to establish new mechanisms for deploying and operating network services. This presentation will introduce a mature, high-impact case of NFV application: vCPE, new model that aims to enhance end-user experience, reduce costs, and facilitate the roll out of new network services. In order to maximize its potential, it has to be accompanied by a reinterpretation of service delivery, and its orchestration mechanisms. The Network-as-a-Service paradigm plays a key role in this orchestration.
