RICHARDSON, Texas & LONDON - Thursday, August 29th 2013
Mavenir Systems®, a leading provider of software-based mobile communications solutions, announced today that it has launched a commercial deployment of virtualized Rich Communication Services (RCS-e) in a multi-tenant Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) environment.
Mavenir has demonstrated significant CAPEX reductions for IMS-based RCS deployments when utilizing multi-tenancy on a centrally deployed common platform. Mobile operators are leveraging NFV technologies to build and manage their next generation networks in a more efficient and cost effective manner that will also enable increased network flexibility and service velocity. A recent survey by TelecomTV Futures1, in association with HP and Intel, indicated that 78% of respondents rated NFV as either ‘important’ or ‘very important’ to service provider success in the future.
“We are seeing increased pressure on mobile operators to reduce the cost and complexity of network service deployment creating a market for disruptive transformation with more efficient NFV based networks,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO, Mavenir Systems. “Many of our customers are already seeing the agility and the benefits of Virtualized IMS in their live networks, not just in lab trials.”
Utilizing Mavenir’s previously announced Virtualized IMS platform, leading Tier-1 operators in Europe are currently rolling out Mavenir's NFV technology as part of their VoLTE /RCS rollouts. The commercial deployment of RCS-e services in a virtualized, multi-tenant environment was launched in 2013 to serve subscribers across multiple countries.
Mavenir is leveraging its virtualization technology to provide the multi-tenancy capability needed by multi-national mobile operator groups. Importantly, virtualization also provides the capacity elasticity and operational flexibility to allow traffic pattern shifts from legacy messaging to IP messaging services.
