A cloud-native network opens several new possibilities for the service providers to deliver a differentiated experience and accelerate the launch of new services even as they bring down the total cost of ownership of running the network.
Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are transitioning from physical to cloud networks to improve operational efficiency and network resiliency while also reducing operating costs.
Mavenir’s Ashok Khuntia, President of Core Networks, discusses the recent announcement by customer Deutsche Telekom of their deployment of Mavenir’s Converged Packet Core to power their 5G standalone (SA) network
The journey towards full cloud-native networks needs to be meticulously planned and executed so service providers are able to reap the promised benefits. In a recent interview with TelecomTV, Mavenir’s Bejoy Pankajakshan, EVP Chief Technology and Strategy Officer, elaborates on the key milestones for building a fully cloud-native network.
The real key to unlocking the value of the O-RAN RIC is having CU/DUs support both the O- and E2- interface capabilities. Without both, CSPs get nothing more than a variant of legacy SON, instead of true near-RT RAN optimization and cost advantages.
Fixed and mobile broadband bring connectivity to most, but some rural and suburban areas still lack reliable high-speed internet. Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) has the unique capability to connect the unconnected and bring affordable broadband services to all.
Hyperscalers have redefined network transformation with cloud technology, driving partnerships with CSPs seeking a competitive advantage. But the learning curve of the Telco-specific requirements can be steep.
CI/CD is a crucial tool for Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to adapt, especially as networks are increasingly becoming software-driven with cloud-native functions that require automation.
Mavenir commends President Biden for signing the legislation into law, which will enhance the global Open RAN ecosystem, advance deployments, and increase vendor diversity.
CSPs are using hybrid cloud to retain private workloads while still reaping the scalability, performance, and costs benefits from the public cloud.
