Mavenir delivers virtualized Media Breakout Controller (vMBC)
Software company Mavenir recently premiered its virtualized Media Breakout Controller (vMBC), which enables operators to host virtual routing, firewall and user plane data offload with white box routing.
Networks currently are under pressure to meet consumer demands for more bandwidth and less latency. Multi-access edge computing (MEC) has been heralded as a way to address these needs by processing tasks closer to the end-user; although, much traffic processing still takes place in the core. According to Mavenir, the vMBC is able to break out local traffic and direct traffic from the network edge instead of moving it through the core.
