Point of Delivery (POD) is the method in which a blueprint is deployed to a edge site. For example a edge location could have a single server or multiple servers contain in one or more racks. As the blueprint uses the declarative configuration, Point of delivery (POD) allows the way to declare the way the edge devices are organized for the deployment. POD allows cookie-cutter method to deploy on a larger scale (e.g., 10,000 plus locations) at a reduced cost.
As an example, the below figure shows various PODs specifically from the Network Cloud blueprint family such as Cruiser, Tricycle, Unicycle, Satellite, and Rover blueprint species. Each POD has different hardware components to meet the particular Telco and enterprise use cases.
