RAD Launches vCPE Platform

RAD introduced a carrier-grade virtual CPE (vCPE) platform with Distributed NFV (D-NFV) capability.

RAD’s ETX-2i is an IP and Carrier Ethernet NID/NTU with a field pluggable x86 NFV module for hosting virtual network functions (VNFs).  It can be managed by RAD’s D-NFV Orchestrator or any third-party orchestrator using open standards, and supports various options for vCPE architecture and VNF placement to meet agility, performance, security and cost needs.

RAD said its vCPE solution supports dynamic forwarding to enable chaining flexibility for embedded and virtualized functions. Moreover, it features a high-scale built-in router and modular network interfaces for any access infrastructure – fiber, PDH, SDH/SONET, SHDSL, or VDSL.
