Network Slicing Enables Operators to Launch New Business Models Quickly and Easily
Mavenir, focused on transforming mobile network economics for Communications Service Providers (CSPs), today announced that a Tier-1 North American Operator has launched new services using CloudRangeTM, its industry leading NFV platform based on MANO/ONAP architecture, as part of a pre-integrated network services deployment model.
With CloudRangeTM, operators can use their existing network for slicing selected services and create additional slices for new and differentiated services that increase revenues, while delivering efficiency in the network and enhancing quality of service and security. This capability works across the radio, core, and applications to allow for practical deployments such as subscriber data/intelligence in the network, MVNO network setup, and network upgrade with virtualized OpenStack multi-vendor deployments.
Mavenir’s Pre-Integrated network services allow operators to generate revenue by deploying network slices for specific groups of users at market speed. It can be used by operators with existing networks to offer tailored services to target groups without impacting the current network or by greenfield operators to cost effectively launch with a small deployment and grow as needed. Once deployed, the NFV solution has the capability for control and Life Cycle management of network resources.
“Operators are looking for a new economic model to reduce their costs and generate new revenues quickly and easily. This customer is taking advantage of our unique pre-integrated services deployment model combined with our CloudRangeTM platform to provide the agility and flexibility needed in today’s networks,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO of Mavenir. “This configuration gives operators the agility to rapidly launch and scale new business models as well as the flexibility to adjust deployments based on subscriber behavior.”
Mavenir’s Pre-Integrated network services provide an IP Multimedia Core Network Subsystem (IMS) core with Evolved Packet Core (EPC), including Packet Gateway (PGW), Home Subscriber Server (HSS), and Evolved Packet Data Gateway (ePDG). Interconnection with PSTN and other carriers is supported, as well as connection with provisioning and billing interfaces. Many of Mavenir’s fully virtualized, award-winning and carrier-grade solutions can be delivered in an Integrated Services configuration including VoLTE, VoWiFi, RCS, Messaging as a Platform (MaaP), etc.
