Considering Virtual CPE to Secure Your Unified Communications? Here Is What You Need to Know!
Tuesday, September 12, 2017
11:00 a.m New York/ 4:00 p.m. London
In order to streamline the delivery of cloud-based IP communications services to enterprise customers, service providers are now leveraging network functions virtualization (NFV) architectures and orchestration tools to instantiate network services, such as a run-time ready session border controller (SBC) for secure, robust, SIP-based services in just minutes.
With a virtual, cloud-native SBC, service providers can deliver the security, scalability, interworking and high-availability that enterprise customers have come to expect from hardware-only solutions.
In this webinar, you will learn why enterprises should consider deploying a managed virtual CPE (vCPE) solution in their Unified Communication (UC) networks. Concepts in this webinar will include:
- The security impacts of integrating vCPE into existing UC networks
- Best practices for implementing a holistic enterprise security strategy
- vCPE and UC integration reference architecture
- Why an MPLS network is not enough
- Avoiding interoperability and protocol translation issues with legacy equipment
- Achievable capex savings vCPE can deliver
