Mavenir Systems, a leading provider of software-based networking solutions, today announced another market game changer, Virtualised 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 virtualisation technology 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 virtualised 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 Virtualised IMS technology as part of their VoLTE / IMS rollouts.

Pardeep Kohli, president and CEO Mavenir Systems said, “Virtualisation 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, virtualisation enables an economy of scale not previously available to mobile operators.”

“Mavenir’s virtualisation 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 utilisation 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 virtualisation 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 Virtualised 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.
