Network software company Mavenir believes it can break into the top three of wireless infrastructure vendors within the next five years, taking market share from Ericsson, Nokia, and Huawei.
Mavenir announced earlier this month that it had landed a deal with a Tier 1 North American carrier for Its NFV-based CloudRange platform.
TRANSFORMING HYPERGROWTH INTO A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE
THE NEXT GENERATION OF MOBILE NETWORKS
Exponential growth in network traffic, new use cases, and shared spectrum resources have placed a tremendous pressure on MNOs to find the most efficient use of their allocated radio spectrum. There is a need for a New Radio evolution to improve spectral efficiency and superior network capacity.
Mavenir vEPC is an innovative Evolved Packet Core (EPC) specifically designed from the ground up for virtualized environments. Organized in independent slices of the control, user, and management planes, Mavenir vEPC is free of the architectural restrictions posed by traditional, physical node-based packet cores.
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.
The concept of open goes beyond just standards interoperability. A RAN built by Nokia, Ericsson or Huawei will be interoperable with any device, any core, any transmission network attaching to it – due to its conformance with standards. That is a standards-based network.
Rapid advances in mobile computing power are pushing machine intelligence to the very edge of the network.
Known as Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), this development is a critical success factor in the rise of the new 5G mobile networks that will deliver unheard of data speeds to an exponentially larger user base, and all at a fraction of the cost-per-bit expense.
