Mavenir’s fully containerized cloud-native IMS demonstrates scalability, flexibility, and most importantly automation.”
Mavenir’s fully containerized, OpenRAN vRAN solution enables operators to rapidly deploy new features into the network, without waiting for new hardware revisions, or even having to forklift the hardware. It is easy to migrate from 4G to 5G with just a software update, and operators can customize their own software and put features of their choice in their network.
As the #1 IMS provider of NFV IMS, voice, video, and messaging, Mavenir transforms mobile networks with a fully virtualized and containerized cloud-native IMS platform where devices, applications, and services can run on an automated network using open architecture, containers, and artificial intelligence.
