Virtual CPE (vCPE)

vCPE solutions enable the replacement of multiple disconnected, expensive and usually proprietary pieces of equipment providing network functions – routing, firewall, VPN, NAT, access control, policy management, etc. – with a single, general purpose hardware platform that can be easily upgraded and more cost effectively. Depending on specific requirements, vCPE can be a relatively simple Ethernet device with applications such as firewall, VPN, VoIP, etc. moved to the cloud.
