As organizations take advantage of emerging network services, such as SD-WAN and enhanced security, the industry is recognizing there is a better way to deploy these over the traditional dedicated network appliance model of the past. Through the use of open, standards-based cloud/server technology, organizations are now able to leverage edge service platforms, known as universal customer premises equipment (uCPE), to deploy and manage services in a shared, open architecture that reduces cost, eliminates vendor lock-in, provides future-proofing for new services, and simplifies operations.

In this presentation, Kevin McCartney will cover how this is being done across the industry and how it’s impacting the way organizations view the evolution of the network edge for the future of their businesses. Register for the event beginning November 9.
