Service Provider Outlook

whitePaper | July 20, 2021

In 2Q21, Heavy Reading surveyed 86 communications service providers (CSPs) across global regions on their plans for customer premises equipment overall and universal CPE (uCPE) specifically. This report presents the highlights of that survey. Omdia’s uCPE Tracker – 1H21 Annual Forecast report projects that the worldwide uCPE hardware market will grow from $52.5m in 2020 to $2.3bn in 2025—an impressive CAGR of 113% over five years. With this in mind, Heavy Reading expected to see good support for uCPE from survey respondents, and we were not disappointed. We targeted the survey at CSPs planning to implement uCPE within, at most, 24 months. Nevertheless, the respondent pool showed a more lively than anticipated adoption of uCPE. 59% of US, 61% of Asia Pacific (APAC), and 39% of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) respondents have already deployed uCPE.

Cisco ACI and F5 BIG-IP Design Guide

whitePaper | May 12, 2022

The document discusses load balancer design considerations and deployment options in Cisco ACI, specifically with F5 BIG-IP from three aspects: network design, F5 design, and multi-tenant design. This document covers features up to Cisco ACI Release 5.2. One of the key considerations of the network design with load balancer is to ensure incoming and return traffic go through the same load balancer (one exception is direct server return (DSR), which doesn't have this requirement). There are various options you can use to insert the load balancer. One way is to use the load balancer as a gateway for servers or as a routing next hop for routing instances. Another option is to use Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) on the load balancer or use ACI Policy-Based Redirect (PBR) to make the return traffic go back to the load balancer.

Lavelle Networks SD-WAN Improves Branch Office Cloud Access

whitePaper | January 5, 2020

The popularity of cloud services has meant big changes for branch office networks, which have been operating for years utilizing only dedicated multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) connections back to a corporate data centers. Now, there’s a need to add broadband connections for faster cloud access. But these links are less secure and complicate network management and policy enforcement. Software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) systems enable branch offices to have both their broadband connections and to enforce policies designed to improve network security and performance.
