RAD, the industry pioneer of network edge virtualization, provides flexible vCPE platforms for the customer edge to fit diverse deployment scenarios. RAD offers a complete solution that includes L2/L3 NIDs featuring a virtualization engine, physical CPE (pCPE) and uCPE (universal CPE) devices, enhanced whitebox offerings, pluggable devices to accelerate server performance, management and orchestration for the network edge.

This solution is complemented by RAD’s D-NFV Alliance, an ecosystem of network orchestrator and VNF vendors, as well as international system integrators specializing in new pre-certified NFV/vCPE applications.

RAD offers centralized (pCPE) and de-centralized (uCPE) vCPE architectures. This diversified portfolio features:
  • A cost-optimized whitebox vCPE for business services with optional license-based physical network functions (PNFs): routing, NID, tunneling, performance monitoring
  • A scalable solution allowing operators to spin-up virtual managed services, from security to routing, SD-WAN to IT services, and much more
  • A powerful, carrier-class operating system allowing service providers to control all devices and functions; integrated networking functions and flexible access management
  • Wire-speed networking performance while preserving CPU resources for instantiation of additional VNFs using the Whitebox+ hybrid platform with D-NFV
  • A single hardware platform to optimize inventory
  • Preserve established network operations procedures, avoid extra boxes
  • Plugable PNFs to enhance whiteboxes, including an MEF 2.0 NID, a performance monitoring responder/generator, a PDH/SDH/SONET uplink, a TDM user interface, and a 1588 PTP Grandmaster
This innovative approach enables service providers to start with a whitebox uCPE that can host VNFs, and then later activate licensed-based PNFs (e.g., a NID or hardware-based router functionality). Alternatively, a customer can begin with a L2/L3 NID and later on add a modular pico-cloud x86 server for VNF hosting and full uCPE functionality. www.rad.com/
