China Telecom Tests Huawei's Virtual Customer Premises Equipment

China Telecom Corporation Limited Beijing Research Institute completed live network tests of Huawei's Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) based Virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE).

The idea with vCPE is to "cloudify" and simplify enterprise service functions, such as firewalls, that have traditionally been implemented in the CPE.  Upgrading such equipment is costly and slow, whereas changes can be more flexibly implemented in the network.


Mr. Chen Yunqing, Vice President, China Telecom Corporation Limited Beijing Research Institute, said, "Through this live network test of vCPE, we have realized the immense benefits of Network Functions Virtualization to carriers. This provides software and hardware support for future development and deployment of integrated Cloud services, helping carriers address challenges from cloud computing and big data."

The successful vCPE test demonstrates the partnership China Telecom and Huawei have developed. The two parties are also exploring the commercialization of NFV and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) on carrier networks. As industry leaders, Huawei and China Telecom will continue to develop new technologies and improve current network functions and architecture. Both parties aim to play a leading role in the commercialization and full popularization of NFV and SDN.
