Global Virtual Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) Market is valued approximately at USD 1283.09 million in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 37% over the forecast period 2020-2027. Virtual CPE is a means of delivering network services such as routing, firewall security and virtual private network connectivity to businesses through the use of software rather than dedicated hardware devices. By virtualizing CPE, providers will significantly simplify and speed service delivery, securely customize and control equipment, and enable consumers to request new services or change current ones on demand. The growing need for accessibility, rising demand for virtual networking technology and facilities such as such as virtual LANs (VLANs) and containers such as virtual machines (VMs) Network storage devices, as well as changing traffic dynamics and increasing network complexities, are rising the acceptance of V-CPE across end-users. V-CPE offers upgraded physical networking facilities that can be converted into common virtual services that are accessible from anywhere without the need of any networking equipment. The concept of virtual infrastructure has reduced the hardware dependence of enterprises and minimized the cost of networking infrastructure. However, security and reliability concerns related to virtual architecture and lack of skilled workforce and limited knowledge among end-users are limiting the growth of V-CPE solutions on the market. The application of V-CPE in the education sector transforms the education system by providing the benefits of virtualization technology such as online programs, group discussions and information exchange are made possible through virtualization technology. With the education system moving from classroom learning to learning through computers and universities integrating content into their existing networking or IT courses, V-CPE solutions enable the education sector to manage educational programs and university data efficiently. However, high initial cost associated with virtual CPE solutions coupled with Security and reliability concern related to virtual architecture may act as a hindrance to the market growth. Various service providers of virtual CPE are adopting the strategy of product launch to gain competitive edge over other players operating in the marketplace. For instance, In June 2016, IBM expanded its suite of semantic interface applications for Network functions virtualization (NFV) and consumer premises. The company launched IBM Spectrum Computing, built to extract maximum value from results, to automate high-performance analytics or machine learning.
