Enabling Operators to Launch New Business Models with Network Slices
Pre-Integrated Network Services is a bundle of carrier-grade software functions that allows operators to increase revenue by rapidly launching a separate network slice for a specific user community. Operators with existing networks can use it to launch new offerings without disturbing their current network.
A complete, virtualized network solution, Pre-Integrated Services speeds time to market by eliminating the need for inter-vendor integration testing. Many of Mavenir’s award-winning solutions can be delivered in a Pre-Integrated Services configuration, including:
- Voice Evolution
- Rich Communications Services (RCS)
- Messaging as a Platform (MaaP)
- Internet of Things (IoT)
Pre-Integrated Services use cases can be customized rate plans with robust messaging solutions for enterprises, or new business models tailored for cruise ships, defense networks, and smart homes and cities. Operators with a low subscriber base can use Pre-Integrated Services to launch their offering with a small, low-cost footprint on commodity hardware.
