In the last few years, Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) have been introduced in the Internet as a new way to design, deploy and manage networking services. Working together, they are able to consolidate and deliver the networking components using standard IT virtualization technologies not only on high-volume servers, but even in the end user premises. In this context, this paper presents the NetFATE architecture, a platform aimed at putting virtual network functions (VNF) at the edge of the network. This platform is based on free and open source software on Provider Equipment (PE) and Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) nodes, so allowing function deployment simplification and management cost reduction. Finally, the paper proposes a case study, consisting in the implementation of two virtual personal firewalls used by two clients moving between two access points located at the edge of the core network.
