GROUND-UP APPROACH TO COMPLETE 5G CORE SOLUTION WITH CLOUD-NATIVE ARCHITECTURE

Mobile World Congress Los Angeles, CA: October 21, 2019 – Mavenira US-based Network Software Provider, and the industry’s only end-to-end cloud-native vendor for CSPs, announced today its 5G Core platform, which includes a comprehensive set of 5G core functions on a containerized cloud-native platform. The decomposition of functions into these modular units provides the operators the flexibility to scale them independently; scalability and flexibility that wasn’t possible with 4G EPC.

Mavenir has invested heavily in developing the 5G Core solution from the ground-up on cloud-native principles that can still be retrofitted on EPCs. The solution encompasses all the major 5G core elements, such as AMF, SMF, UPF, NRF, UDSF, PCF, UDM, UDR, NSSF, AUSF, BSF, N3IWF, SCP, SEPP, and SMSF. All these functions are implemented as micro-services in containers. In addition, Mavenir is also building remaining 5G core functions, NEF, 5G-EIR, NWDAF etc.

The Mavenir 5G Core also combines 4G EPC functionality and offers a ‘Converged Mobile Core’ solution that supports both 4G and 5G subscribers. In addition, the Mavenir 5G Core supports all Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) options. This includes 5G SA Option 2 and Option 5, as well as 5G NSA Option 4 and Option 7. With this comprehensive solution, operators will be able to support in parallel existing 4G subscribers, deploy new commercial grade 5G use cases and reap the benefit of a full array of features and capabilities that 5G promises in early 2020.

Mavenir’s investment in building the 5G Core in a future proof way has generated tremendous interest from service providers around the globe. Mavenir’s 5G Core is being tested at Tier-1 operators in Asia Pacific, Europe and in North America.

“Mavenir is engaged with almost all the leading operators in all regions that are showing eagerness in being early adopters and taking advantage of a truly cloud-native microservices-based 5G Core solution,” said Pardeep Kohli, Mavenir’s President and CEO.  “This 5G Core allows mobile operators to move directly to next generation technology instead of investing in older 4G elements and Mavenir has the resources and plans to continue to develop the entire scope of 5G Core portfolio.”

Added Kohli, “This 5G Core solution, along with Mavenir’s recent announcement of 4G/5G OpenRAN, affirms the fact that Mavenir is a truly end-to-end network provider.” 

At Mobile World Congress Los Angeles, Mavenir will be showcasing the deployment of 6 different 5GC CNFs. Mavenir’s 5G Core solution will be demonstrated along with automation to deploy the Container as a Service (CaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) based on Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) open source components. To complement the leading edge 5G Core solution, Mavenir has developed automation of deployment and configuration of the CaaS, PaaS and 5G Core Container Network Functions (CNFs).
