Mavenir takes pride in having developed an advanced Network Security and Fraud Management Suite
What kind of value addition is Mavenir offering to the Indian Communications Service Providers (CSPs)?
Mavenir is known as a disruptive innovator and the only end-to-end network software provider. Using our technology DNA, the 5G Core goes above and beyond 3GPP standards to provide operators with faster TTM and more cost-efficient functionality. Focused on the mobile network economics for operators in India, our 5G Core will provide much needed cost reduction in the network while enabling innovative new revenue generating use cases/services including network slicing.
Utilizing Cloud Native micro-services, we uniquely implement interoperable solutions that 3GPP definitions do not address, including working with legacy protocols. Additionally, we are in a position to offer operators in India numerous flexible options for delivering rapid value that greatly reduces risk while delivering unlimited scale and significantly improved speed, security and reliability.
Our containerized approach to automation help operators begin the transition to a disaggregated and modular, containerized micro service software-based network running on general purpose processing platforms, providing the opportunity to train employees, adjust operational processes and test drive DevOps based software deployment – all while reducing cost and risk.
Which are the key focus verticals you are targeting?
Mavenir is committed to cloud-centric infrastructure across its end-to-end 5G portfolio (vRAN, vEPC, IMS, Security, and other critical solutions), using open development techniques and programming tools to deliver the networks of the future. Our vRAN technology extends the virtualization to the edge of the network and provides strategic differentiation by enabling the Remote Radio Units (RRUs) to interwork with the virtualized Cloud Base Band Unit (vBBU) over ethernet Fronthaul (FH), overcoming the traditional constraints of Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) over fiber.
We have developed the industry's most advanced Network Security and Fraud Management Suite, a unique platform built with AI/Machine Learning & Big Data Analytics providing Real-Time Network Protection and Fraud Prevention. Apart from these services, we have successfully developed Mobile Business Fabric which is a dynamic and fluid business communications framework designed to meet the evolving digital needs of businesses as mobility becomes a primary driver and customers demand change. It comprises a mobile-native portfolio of business communications solutions that enables communications service providers (CSPs) and channel partners to deliver disruptive mobile user experience.
How is Mavenir positioned in the current situation, more so, when the Indian service providers are under severe financial stress?
