The point of demarcation between a telco operator’s network and the end-user has been rife with innovation as operators have invested heavily in network functions virtualization (NFV), all in an effort to provide more agile delivery of virtual network functions (VNFs), such as routers, firewalls, and more. 
On this NMG hosted panel will discuss how telcos continue to pursue innovation at the customer edge via the deployment of universal CPEs or edge based NFV infrastructures comprised of white box hardware and open source software.
