Hardware vs Software BNGs – Gaining Competitive Edge for a 5G Future

Presented by

Michael McFarland, VP Product Management, Benu Networks and Paul Mannion, SDN-NFV Market Segment Director  Intel

About this talk

Internet service providers (ISPs) are faced with the challenge of deploying a cost effective, future-proof broadband network gateway (BNG) to meet the needs of residential and business broadband subscribers. With most of the workforce working remotely, there’s a massive opportunity to not only meet the changing bandwidth requirements for residential subscribers, but also to reimagine the new residential broadband with 5G services layered on top. A next-gen BNG can help operators gain flexibility and provide an additional breadth of offerings, simplifying broadband service delivery and creating new options for converged services.. In this session, we’ll discuss: · Trade-offs between hardware and software BNGs · Benefits of a disaggregated, cloud-native architecture · Growing revenue with layered services · Enabling 5G services on fixed broadband and WiFi networks
