Re-Architecting the Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) in a Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Cloud Native World
Last Updated: Oct 04, 2021
The future viability of NFV-based networking equipment running on general-purpose servers hinges on the ability to service ever-increasing traffic volume in a cost-effective manner. This paper presents architectural considerations and benchmarking data that demonstrate the huge potential for NFV-based packet processing. In addition, CoSPs can deliver network connectivity and new services from the edge of the network using a combination of BNG and service-edge solutions.
