Customer premises equipment

Customer premises equipment is also known as customer provided equipment (CPE) and it encompasses any hardware, terminal or associated equipment that is physically located at a subscriber’s premises but connect with the carrier’s telecommunication channel. Customer Premises Equipment includes telephones, routers, switches, residential gateways, set-top boxes, types of fixed mobile convergence products and internet access gateways. Generally, CPEincludes anything purchased by the subscriber, or provided by the service provider (or operator). Essentially, the service provider or operator still owns the equipment and it is loaned to the customer (although some customers do decide to purchase equipment, like in the instance of modems). Traditionally, the loan agreement shields the customer from the cost of any technology upgrades. The equipment can be provided to both residential addresses and businesses.
