Optimized software and hardware platform for uCPE
Cavium, a provider of semiconductor products that enable secure and intelligent processing for enterprise, data center, wired and wireless networking, and Enea, a global supplier of network software platforms and services, helping customers develop amazing functions for the connected society, have announced availability of optimized uCPE solutions based on Cavium OCTEON TX ARMv8 processor SoC families and Enea NFV Access software platform.
Using universal customer premises equipment (uCPE), service providers offer their enterprise customers on-demand deployment with flexibility of choosing from a range of virtualized network appliances in terms of specific virtual network functions (VNF) and VNF vendors. In addition to the agile and flexible deployment benefits, the uCPE software platform provides a consistent management interface regardless of the selected network functions, and service-function-chaining of the subscribed VNFs for individual enterprise subscribers.
“uCPE provides on-demand deployment of multiple network functions previously each implemented as its own purpose built appliance, plus virtualization software platform in cost effective single-box COTS systems,” said Raj Singh Vice President & General Manager of the Network & Communication Group at Cavium. “Cavium’s highly integrated OCTEON TX ARMv8 processor SoC families, with high performance processing, exceptional power efficiency, hardware accelerators abstracted by standard APIs like DPDK, standard software eco-systems and cost effective and scalable white box hardware eco-systems, offer highly optimized uCPE processing solutions.”
“Enea NFV Access offers out-of-the-box VNF management and service function chaining for orchestrating on-demand agile VNF deployment - without the overhead that solutions originally developed for data centers carry with them,” said Karl Mörner, SVP Product Management, Enea. “Enea NFV Access is a versatile virtualization software platform streamlined for high networking performance and minimal footprint, and contributes to uCPE agility and innovation, reducing cost and complexity for computing at the network edge.”
