Leveraging a foundation of software and API-led connectivity, deep AI/ML knowledge and virtualized network expertise critical for 5G AI use cases

Richardson, TX – March 11, 2021 – Mavenir, the industry’s only end-to-end cloud-native Network Software Provider and a leader in accelerating software network transformation for communications service providers (CSPs), announced today its extended Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Analytics portfolio to enable closed-loop automation and drive digital transformation.

AI and machine learning (ML) in mobile network infrastructure is expected to lower costs by automating functions that typically require human interaction and to speed new revenue generating service offerings, becoming increasingly important as edge, open radio access networks (Open RAN), and 5G cores get deployed.

Mavenir’s AI and Analytics portfolio includes solutions designed to analyze and derive inferences from vast amounts of unstructured data to automate networks, achieve cost savings, and build out 5G use cases. Many Industry 4.0 use cases such as Intelligent Video Analytics and AR/VR are enabled by 5G that require AI-driven inferences at the edge. Mavenir’s portfolio includes these AI-enabled applications for Network Automation, Intelligent Operations, EdgeAI, and Network Security.

Network Automation: Mavenir’s RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) and Network Data Analytics Function (NWDAF) follow the specifications introduced by the O-RAN Alliance and 3GPP and operate as the heart of a network automation vision. The RIC and NWDAF enable the network to dynamically adapt to traffic conditions using machine learning (ML)-based algorithms and applications that can be deployed in any network in a multi-vendor environment. Mavenir’s containerized RIC and NWDAF product capabilities include:

  • Non-RT RIC: designed to host advanced ML algorithms (rApps) to optimize network performance and train ML models using long-term RAN data for dynamic and adaptive policy for RAN performance optimization.
  • Near-RT RIC: designed to host trained AI/ML models (xApps) to infer and control O-RAN functional elements in near-real time.
  • NWDAF: designed to ingest data from  5G standalone (SA) network functions and to provide various analytics and intelligence services for smart network operation.

Intelligent Operations: By automating network operational processes with AI and analytics solutions, operators should be able to substantially reduce the cost and time from traditional, more labor-intensive methods such as drive testing, log inspection, troubleshooting, and manual calibration. With AI-based prediction engines, operators can achieve intelligent capacity planning and reduce the possibility of large-scale network outages. With anomaly detection capability, operators can uncover underlying network faults that are not easily visible. This AI-driven Operations (AIOps) solution using ML techniques plays a key role in reducing operating expenses and gives operators complete control over their networks.

5G EdgeAI: Mavenir’s 5G EdgeAI solution includes Intelligent Video Analytics that can support myriad of use cases from facial recognition to anomaly detection for smart city and industry 4.0 use cases. Next generation of AR/VR applications are accelerated and enhanced by this edge platform. Large number of sensor data gets analyzed and actions are taken in a matter of milliseconds by the edge Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) analytics application.

Network security: As new vulnerabilities arise, Mavenir’s Fraud Management and Security Suite protect the network in real-time with predictive analytics and ML. The Real-Time Fraud Management and Security analytics is leveraging unique ML algorithms and a specifically designed framework suited to manage the volume, velocity, and variety of structured and unstructured data over wireless networks.

“Mavenir Security and Anti-Fraud Solutions based on AI/ML are taking care of on-going revenue savings at Telefónica Argentina”, says Diego Quevedo, Core Network Solution Design Lead, Telefónica Argentina. “We are in close cooperation with Mavenir to ensure the up-to-date protection of our network.”

“Mavenir’s approach of applying Real-Time Machine Learning technology to protect key operator services and revenue has been highly valued by customers”, said Ilia Abramov, VP and GM, Mavenir Security BU. “New threats raised in the recent years and increasing attack vectors on Mobile Network Services have been successfully detected and blocked though our installed base. The increased level of trust of our AI/ML technology has been confirmed with substantial growth in additional network implementations in the last year.”

“Leveraging our deep AI/ML knowledge and advanced capabilities enables Communications Service Providers to optimize, automate and advance their mobile networks for the future of 5G,” said BG Kumar, President, Mavenir’s Communications Services Business Group. “Network automation and service protection driven by AI/ML are core capabilities of Mavenir and one of the highest priorities of our customers, and we are proud to provide this solution set to enable them to realize their vision.”

Mavenir’s AI/ML and Analytics solutions and Fraud/Security solutions are deployed at multiple Tier 1 operator networks across North America, EMEA, and APAC regions. Additionally, Mavenir is dedicated to continuous AI/ML innovation through the R&D Center of Excellence in Brno, Czech Republic, and R&D in Richardson TX and Bangalore, India.
