BARCELONA, SPAIN – February 24, 2019: Mavenir, transforming mobile network economics for Communications Service Providers (CSPs), has been selected by Partner Communications Ltd. (Nasdaq: PTNR), to transform and upgrade its core mobile network. Partner chose Mavenir’s software solutions for upgrading its network core and adding new capabilities, expanding existing voice services such as VoLTE (voice calls on a 4G network), VoWiFi calling, and installing virtualized technologies in its packet data core.
“Upgrading our core with Mavenir, is an important step that will enable Partner to maintain a technological advantage on our mobile network, install new advanced technologies and services, and expand the capabilities of the IoT network we launched last year.” Said Raz Bartov, Partner VP, Head of Technologies & IT.
With this upgrade, Partner will have the first virtualized network in Israel and will be able to support many 4G vIMS services as well as be prepared for new technologies. This upgrade also expands on the NB-IoT capabilities in their network that was launched previously. The main components involved in this core upgrade are the vIMS, vCTAS, vEPC and the vHSS.
“We are excited to support Partner in modernizing and transforming their network to a virtualized software-based platform that will enable cost reduction and revenue generation with new services for their customers,” said Pardeep Kohli, President, and CEO of Mavenir. “Partner is a very agile and innovative company and this win demonstrates Mavenir’s continued momentum and ability to transform the economic model for operators. It also highlights the challenges that Mavenir is able to face in implementing the new technologies required by mobile operators today, providing solutions that are managed in a life cycle via its automated and orchestrated capabilities like no one else.”
Mavenir is present in Israel with its development center in Ra’anana and provides an excellent platform to deploy this new technology and to support Partner in its transformation journey to virtualization and beyond.
