5G Mena 2018

9 April 2018 - 10 April 2018
Dubai, Saudi Arabia
5G Mena
Join Mavenir at 5G Mena in Dubai, to discuss the challenges and solutions unifying the 4G and 5G ecosystem that is changing the mobile communications landscape.

The mobile industry is at a tipping point. In the 5G era, status quo network economics are unsustainable. Mobile operators cannot carry on business-as-usual and expect to meet surging bandwidth demand, compete with web-scale rivals and prepare for a 5G future. The cost-per-bit model must change, revenue-generating services must be explored and revenue must be protected from fraud and hacking.

Mavenir's vision to transform mobile network economics is built on innovative, software-based solutions that enable new revenue streams, protect existing ones, and significantly lower capex and opex. As a proven expert in mobile network transformation since 2005, Mavenir is leveraging our innovation DNA and hardware-free approach to disrupt the status quo and enable CSPs to compete and grow revenues within the 4G/5G evolution.
