Mavenir™ Announces Commercial Deployment of Virtualized RCS Based on NFV
RICHARDSON, Texas & LONDON --(Business Wire)--
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 (News - Alert), 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 (News - Alert). "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.
