Virtual business CPE has the potential to create a win-win situation for small and midsize businesses and network operators. Small and midsize businesses are trying to develop network-centric business models, but networks present challenges that are beyond these businesses' managerial and technical capabilities.

Virtual CPE can resolve this dilemma by increasing network service velocity while reducing initial and recurring service costs.
