The Edge NFV section enables customers to deploy third party Virtual Network Functions (VNF) on service ready Edge platforms.

The current service ready Edge platform models are 520v and 840. When the Operator enables Edge NFV (by selecting BOTH the Enable Edge NFV and the corresponding Security VNFs checkboxes), the customer will be able to configure and deploy VNFs and VNF licenses from the their network services. The Operator must check BOTH checkboxes in the Edge NFV area:
  • the Enable Edge NFV checkbox enables the ability to deploy VNF on the Edge
  • the Security VNFs checkbox will specifically enable the ability to deploy security VNFs on the Edge
