Mavenir Brings Virtualized IMS Solutions for VoLTE and RCS to Mobile Operator Core Networks

- Leveraging Cloud Infrastructure for Rapid, Cost Effective Scaling of New Communication Services

RICHARDSON, Texas, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mavenir Systems, a leading provider of software-based networking solutions, today announced another market game changer, Virtualized IMS Solutions for 4G core networks, including VoLTE & RCS 5, based on the mOne® Convergence Platform.

Using Mavenir's Automated mCloud™ Manager in conjunction with VMware's virtualization technology combined with Mavenir's Automated mCloud™ Manager allows the creation and management of Telco grade service availability in an environment based on a wide range of off-the-shelf hardware solutions. Mavenir brings its expertise in creating highly scalable and resilient IMS solutions to the technologies that are commonly used in large scale IT data centers. These virtualized IMS solutions can be flexibly deployed to meet business needs such as multi-tenancy and capacity elasticity.

Leading Tier-1 operators in Europe are currently rolling out Mavenir's Virtualized IMS technology as part of their VoLTE / IMS rollouts.

Pardeep Kohli, president and CEO Mavenir Systems, said, "Virtualization is a means for mobile operators to build the next generation core network, while fundamentally changing the cost equation that historically involved paying price premiums for proprietary HW to provide optimal, cost effective performance. Simply put, virtualization enables an economy of scale not previously available to mobile operators."

"Mavenir's virtualization technology provides the capacity and elasticity to cost-effectively manage the anticipated growth in VoLTE and RCS," he added.

Mavenir's mOne®  Convergence Platform intelligently uses standard APIs to dynamically provision additional hardware resources in response to spikes in traffic, or to share hardware resources with other applications to scale hardware utilization for scheduled peak periods. These software-based core networks, in which applications are abstracted from hardware, provide operators with a deployment model that leverages the economic benefits of cloud infrastructure, and enables them to rapidly add new communications services and scale as the market evolves.  

"Mobile operators need and want programmable and elastic core networks," said Gabriel Brown, senior analyst, Heavy Reading. "IMS virtualization is an opportunity to capture the efficiency gains associated with commercial hardware and, even more importantly, to create a forward-looking core network architecture that can be configured in software to better fit different customer types, use-cases and scaling scenarios."

These Virtualized IMS Solutions build on Mavenir's IMS expertise and experience in solving network transformation issues, and are key enablers in the rapid delivery of IP-based voice, video, rich communications and enhanced messaging services in 2013.

There will be a demonstration of 'Capacity Elasticity of a Virtualized IMS System' at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, at Booth 6E60. Interested?

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
