Mavenir Systems announces Five Industry Firsts with 4G LTE Voice
Mobile Operators can accelerate LTE Voice Strategy with '0 to VoLTE in 30days' offer
Reading, UK – January 25, 2012 – Mavenir Systems, a leading innovator of mobile infrastructure solutions for LTE operators, today announced ‘industry firsts’ with accelerated 4G/LTE core network deployments.
The five ready networks include four IMS-based Mobile VoIP, Voice and Messaging over LTE (VoLTE) deployments in the United States and one CSFB-based deployment in Western Europe. Mobile and Converged operators can quickly build on Mavenir’s momentum with expected first commercial Voice and SMS over LTE services (VoLTE) and first-of-its-kind live Mobile WiFi calling based on IMS, as they race to transform their core network towards all-IP 4G/LTE to offer a rich suite of converged communication services.
“Mavenir’s solution strategy resulted in significant time-to-Market (TTM) advantages as well as flexibility in network adaption and deployment for multiple operators”, said Pardeep Kohli, Mavenir’s president and chief executive officer. “We now broadly offer mobile operators an opportunity to leverage our advanced solutions and Time-to-Market insight to develop a competitive services roadmap strategy starting with VoLTE within 30 days.”
“Mobile operators are faced with declining voice revenues, substitute services, and growing competition from over-the-top providers. Launching IP-based voice and multimedia services provides an opportunity to re-engage with customers, using a more agile development framework,” said Mark Lowenstein, Managing Director, Mobile Ecosystem.
The offer of ‘0 to VoLTE in 30 days’ provides mobile operators with an opportunity to jump start their VoLTE strategy. Mavenir is offering LTE operators a chance to solidify their services roadmap and develop a final deployment plan including the review of network architecture and service requirements.
Operators will be able to offer LTE voice and messaging using CSFB or IMS based VoLTE, Voice over WiFi, VoIP over HSPA, RCS-e and RCS 5.0 (which includes HD Video Calling and Converged IP Messaging services) in 2012. All the solutions are based on the award winning Mavenir mOne™ Convergence Platform.
Mavenir is also releasing a new whitepaper, ‘Mobile Voice Strategies’ - which shows how voice is being transformed into a rich suite of communication services, by leading operators in the world, ensuring a key position of the operator in an open network paradigm. This new commissioned whitepaper was prepared by leading industry analyst, Mark Lowenstein.
