Abstract: Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is a new concept that is shifting network functions from dedicated hardware appliances to software running on commodity hardware. By levering NFV, A communications service provider or CSP can provide a virtual customer Premises Equipment (vCPE) solution which is a method to deliver network services to enterprises by using software rather than dedicated hardware appliances. However, the minimum types of VNF are currently supported in the existing open-source NFV vCPE projects. Therefore, we propose a customized VyOS image that can be deployed as the VNF in NFV vCPE system with multi-function supported. The experiment is conducted in a Tacker-based vCPE system to show the feasibility of the provided VyOS image.
