Rental CPE Solutions
CenturyLink Wholesale Rental CPE Program will streamline how you conduct business with your customers

CenturyLink Wholesale simplifies your customer’s management by introducing a CPE rental program specifically targeted to Resellers and CLECs. Your customers will have the option to add either ADTRAN® or Cisco® data CPE to a new or existing Wholesale IP Solutions Internet, Private and Enhanced port with a small uplift in their Monthly Recurring Charge (MRC).

No Capital Quality

Because CenturyLink owns the devices, this rental program requires no capital outlay to run a similar CPE rental program in-house. CenturyLink will order, stage and drop-ship the Plug 'N' Play™ Rental CPE Packages* to a location of your choice and simply add the monthly rental fee as a separate line item on your invoice. At the end of the CPE term, simply put the CPE back in the box it was shipped in and send it back to CenturyLink. CenturyLink will even pay the shipping charges!

CPE Rental Targets SMBs

CenturyLink Wholesale understands that IP networking is becoming increasingly more complex as small and medium size businesses (“SMBs”Ł) look to converge their applications and communication between remote sites via IP instead of legacy protocols such as Frame Relay, ATM and Private Line. SMBs are also concerned about security and costs associated with managing networks internally. SMBs often wonder if they have the skill set to keep up with this always changing technology and are looking for ways to lower cost by outsourcing the management of their network.

If your customer has the same concerns as outlined here, these CPE rental packages are the right fit for you.
