MAVENIR LOOKS TO CASH IN ON ANTI-HUAWEI FRENZY

29 January 2020

Top officials from Mavenir are now promoting the company to US government officials as a US-based alternative to Chinese suppliers like Huawei.

“Mavenir noted that it is the industry’s only US-owned, US-headquartered, end-to-end network software provider delivering OpenRAN and virtualized networks,” the company told FCC officials, according to filings it made with the agency. “Mavenir shared how the OpenRAN concept could stimulate US-based suppliers to enter the 5G supply chain on a secure basis and stimulate US manufacturing of technology and software rather than offshoring it to China.”
