The Challenge with Existing vCPE solutions
Conflicts of Interest
Many of the existing vCPE solutions cannibalize carrier’s existing MPLS and CPE business. On top of this, they also provide vCPE solutions directly to enterprises, putting them in a conflicting position with that of the carrier.
Long Time to ROI with a Substantial Initial Investment
Most vCPE solutions require an entirely new virtual CPE to be adopted, as well as a virtual cloud infrastructure as the basis to run their solution. This imposes a significant undertaking and large investment by the carrier to replace both their current internal and CPE infrastructure to fully adopt a vCPE solution.
As a result, carriers can’t leverage their existing assets and skill set to their advantage. In fact it’s quite the contrary, those assets become a disadvantage rather than an advantage.
Most of the existing vCPE solutions in the market come with a proprietary stack, which imposes a high degree of lock-in and dependency on the vCPE providers.
