What is v-SAE-GW? This a virtualized gateway function of the vEPC. It is the main component of the Evolved Packet Core (EPC), also known as the SAE Core. Mavenir's innovative cloud core architecture allows for the vEPC platform to be deployed flexibly as a collapsed all-in-one vEPC, or as a vEPC with a separately instantiated Mavenir vHSS, or as a standalone Mavenir vPGW, Mavenir vSAE-GW, or Mavenir vC-SGN.
