A Brave New World of Communications: Rakuten Mobile and Mavenir Combine the Best of the Internet with the Best of Cellular
Rakuten Mobile is using internet best practices to reinvent cellular services. A key partner in this endeavor is Mavenir, a Texas-based software company serving the global telecoms industry. In particular, Mavenir is helping Rakuten Mobile combine the rich capabilities of internet-based communications services with the reliability, reach and quality associated with telecom-provided voice and messaging / SMS services — the ubiquitous standards in the mobile industry. The result is Rakuten Link — a new Rakuten Mobile smartphone app that has the capability to support everything from instant messaging and group video calls to chatbots and online shopping.
