The applications for uCPE are growing as the edge grows in importance for customers looking to take advantage of Digital Initiatives, but success with these remote deployments is dependent on cost-effective management of these systems. Brian makes the case as to why the Edge is important to BT’s enterprise customers, how customers want to use these services at the edge and why data telemetry and analytics are critical to the successful scale-out of uCPE to these customers.
Splunk offers a powerful analytics platform that enables communications service providers (CommSPs) and the enterprises that they serve to gain end-to-end visibility of their uCPE infrastructure, WAN connections, security and other applications, with automatic response when network events violate network policies.
Although SDN and NFV have been around for a number of years, there have been fits and starts due to a variety of different reasons. What’s different this time around is there’s finally an integrated solution with partners aligned, working with service providers to help solve problems. However, as IoT devices continue to grow by some estimates, to 20B+ at the edge, the need to make data-driven decisions at the edge and the ability to deploy uCPE at scale are becoming increasingly vital.
Matt highlights Splunk’s Data to Everything platform, and how his team helps turn real-time data into doing. Splunk helps service providers bring real-time data to every question, decision, and action that affects their organization so they can turn that data into successful outcomes.
