16 – 18 September 2019 Providence, Rhode Island

Join Mavenir at CCA’s Annual Convention in Providence, Rhode Island to discuss the latest mobile innovations, smart strategies, and business opportunities for CSPs.

5G will only accelerate the variety and volume of data traffic further shattering legacy service delivery models and impacting the network economics.  Mobile operators face the technical test of squeezing more data into a much faster and more efficient, yet less expensive, pipe.

The new and forming OpenRAN ecosystem provides a solid foundation for new network economics. A key component for such a future-proof network is the Virtualized RAN (vRAN) – with architecture and interfaces that are already fully specified and open.

Mavenir’s innovative vRAN solution is designed to address the requirements of pre-5G networks with design and programming capabilities that enable simple and inexpensive upgrades to 5G – providing investment protection and deployment flexibility.
