Juniper Networks and Amdocs showcased an automated virtualized customer premises equipment (vCPE) solution to meet enterprise customer demands for new, user-defined services at Mobile World Congress in early March.

Available today, the vCPE solution, which leverages Juniper Networks vMX router and vSRX firewall to deliver full-featured capabilities and industry-leading performance as a virtual function, enables service providers to quickly introduce a broad set of services for their enterprise customers using virtual CPE.

In addition, the joint offering also utilizes Juniper Networks Contrail Networking, an open SDN solution for cloud and network functions virtualization (NFV).

The Amdocs Network Cloud Service Orchestrator allows provisioning and rapid fulfillment of both virtual and physical network functions services.

As part of the joint offering, Juniper and Amdocs are also providing a user portal for self-service selection, a service catalog and service creation capability, and a wide range of delivery and managed services options to help service providers transition to an IT cloud operating model.

Gabriel Brown, senior analyst at Heavy Reading, said, “Service providers recognize the business value of software-powered service chaining as they seek to make their networks more dynamic and better able to adapt to rapid change. Virtual CPE is one of the primary use-cases for NFV and there is clear evidence that service providers will invest in the technology if they have the software solutions they need to achieve true service agility.”
