Telefónica Teams with Mavenir, AWS on IoT Service
Telefónica is working with Mavenir and Amazon Web Services (AWS) on a pre-commercial managed IoT connectivity service that the operator expects to offer using Mavenir’s packet core solution and AWS’s cloud infrastructure.
Telefónica’s Core Innovation team is developing the service in collaboration with Telefónica Tech’s IoT & Big Data unit. The pre-commercial activities cover the deployment of the Mavenir Packet Core on AWS, integration with Telefónica Tech’s KITE platform, and automation of the end-to-end service.
“Mavenir’s converged packet core built upon web-scale technology and cloud-native principles provides support for 4G functionalities and facilitates easy deployment on AWS, offering a compact and efficient model in terms of cost and resources,” said Ashok Khuntia, EVP/GM, Packet Computing at Mavenir, in a statement. “We are excited to work with Telefónica to integrate our packet core solution with Telefonica’s KITE platform over AWS.”
