MEC creates a new ecosystem and value chain, enabling CSPs to securely open their Radio Access Network (RAN) edge to authorized third-parties while allowing them the flexibility to deploy innovative applications and services.
Nobody else provides a vEPC with the scalability and flexibility of Mavenir’s. Not even close. With 3G and 4G networks, the ability to scale up was an important capability for an EPC. But Mavenir recognizes that scaling a vEPC down to just 4 or 6 cores, along with a vBBU, opens the door to all kinds of revenue-generating use cases today and in the future with 5G.
Edge computing is one of the latest and hottest buzzwords in the wireless industry. Already, AT&T is testing edge computing designs and Verizon has gone as far as to coin the term “intelligent edge network” for its latest upgrade efforts.
A 32% local breakout will extend the current macrocell backhaul and EPC capacity by 25.6 months
RICHARDSON, TX – May 15, 2018: Mavenir, a leader in software-based, end-to-end Cloud Native network solutions, today released a new study showing that U.S. mobile carriers could realize savings of more than $546 million over a five-year period by utilizing a virtualized media breakout controller (vMBC) to offload 32% of video traffic.
Operators face a choice in how to design a network architecture that can enable low system latencies for future applications. This guest post from Mavenir describes how its containerised, cloud-native vEPC, with control and user plane separation, can enable the edge cloud core.
In 2018, US software-based telecom networking provider, Mavenir, will continue to embrace disruptive, innovative technology architectures and business models that drive service agility, flexibility and velocity, the company's president told Telecom Review. Ahead of Mobile World Congress 2018, BG Kumar discussed Mavenir's recent projects and acquisitions that serve the telecom sector.
On the Telecom Infra Project's third birthday, Deutsche Telekom's Axel Clauberg says the collaborative group is celebrating the move of mobile network technologies out of the research phase and into the production stage.
Operators are facing a dilemma – How to remain profitable while cost-effectively meeting rapidly escalating network capacity demands. Nearly 80 percent of user data that transmits an operator’s network is an encrypted video that only benefits OTTs. It is in each operator’s best interest to architect the network to off-load this traffic at the nearest point possible.
