  1. vCPE and uCPE: How much cloud do we really need?

    CPE virtualization abolishes proprietary hardware, vendor lock-in, congested rack space and expensive on-site maintenance. How has the cloud transformed CPE and what are the CPE deployment models that best fit today’s diverse traffic? This blog post discusses virtualized CPE (vCPE) and universal CPE (uCPE) in the context of how DPI enables the development of network architectures that are aligned to today’s traffic needs. It illustrates in detail how deep intelligence on traffic and applications enables the optimization of CPE architecture covering options that include on-premises, data center and cloud deployments and the assessment of these options in terms of overall cost, network efficiency and application performance.

  2. Enhancing network visibility for SD-WAN in the era of cloud and SaaS

    One of the most touted benefits of SD-WAN is the execution of network policies via dynamic provisioning of network services such as firewalls, load balancers and session controllers. With SD-WAN, centrally controlled orchestrators can now control network functions remotely, allowing network services to respond instantaneously to the type of application that is being delivered. However, to respond to the demands of the traffic and dynamically provision network services by application types, networks require network visibility through application awareness. Identifying an application, its attribute or its application family allows networks to become intelligent enforcing corresponding policies.
