Mavenir Digital Enablement

The Mavenir Digital Enablement (MDE) platform helps CSPs innovate freely, respond to market demands quickly, and fully monetize new 5G business models.

Mavenir’s Digital Enablement (MDE) is a cloud-native, catalog-driven digital BSS that enables CSPs to easily create new 5G digital offerings or complete the 5G network transformation with charging and mediation functions and can also be used to design a digital marketplace experience, bundling cross-industry partner products and services into unified offerings. 

MDE is built on a MACH (Microservice, API First, Cloud Native, Headless frontends) architecture that can run as a comprehensive BSS or importantly, as a digital overlay with existing legacy BSS for minimal risk and disruption.  BSS digital overlay systems can help CSPs to maximize returns in the 5G era. 

The digital overlay approach can also reduce costs considerably, potentially saving CSPs up to 50% over 3-5 years when compared with traditional transformation approaches.

With MDE, CSPs can design and create modern digital experiences for subscribers and partners, economically and with scale.

The configurable platform gives CSPs the tools needed for a fast response to market changes and the agility to leap forward by creating and delivering next-generation use cases.

Mavenir’s Converged Charging System (CCS) is a modern telecom charging system and can be deployed alongside the existing charging solution.

The microservices-based, API-first, cloud-native, and headless (MACH) architecture supports the next-generation rating and charging requirements, including 5G, mIoT, MEC, and Network-as-a-Service.

Mavenir’s CCS supports complete convergence of charging models and is service or network agnostic for charging offer and rule definitions.

This robust mediation layer is built with a cloud-native, multi-tenant design on modern technologies to enable 5G use cases while still supporting traditional mediation functions, both online and offline. 

Mavenir’s CGF addresses the event capture, processing, and transformation functions before the consumption of charging or billing nodes to handle non-traditional event charging requirements. CGF simplifies convergence by enriching and correlating data from networks to the respective OSS/BSS. The intuitive, UI-driven rules platform for configuring rules and creating adaptors makes handling any new use case easy.

Bringing true web-scale flexibility, CSPs can use the MDE Marketplace to quickly bundle their connectivity services with cross-industry partner offerings. It unlocks monetization opportunities by enabling CSPs to offer flexible billing models including SaaS.

Newly created, personalized offerings for consumer or enterprise customers and the ability to collaborate with vendors who supply the right hardware or services lets CSPs develop new, cross-industry services today that enhance the customer perception and broadly expand the revenue opportunities of tomorrow.

Set up quickly, go to market even faster, deliver rich customer experiences, and disrupt the competition with future-proof technology. Use MDE to remove the barriers of legacy systems and gain a first-mover advantage as a modern digital brand. Stay lean and launch new MVNO platforms with optimal results.

Mavenir’s open architecture and API-first approach brings risk-free product experimentation, seamless third-party or MNO integration, and a BSS specialized for the MVNO’s line of business.

Start small and add services along the way. The MDE library helps MVNO’s control the end-to-end customer experience from purchase, discounts, charging and, billing over multiple digital channels.

See how Mavenir’s IoT business management solution provides future-proof technologies and frameworks to help CSPs monetize their network investment. They can address modern business cases for IoT and network slicing with an open and adaptable solution.

The IoT solution is completely cloud-native, supports multiple connectivity technologies, and provides a unified model for orchestration of any IoT scenario. Coupled with comprehensive device and application management features, Mavenir enables an end-to-end business management service for CSPs to meet the complex demands of IoT customers.

MDE Portfolio Across the Network and IT Planes

Composable BSS — Start Building Improved Customer Interactions with the Reusable Microservices and APIs

With an ever-growing library of microservices and open APIs, MDE allows CSPs to build and customize systems in a few simple clicks with no coding required. Compose services that accommodate broad customer segments or conduct rapid product experiments over agile sprint cycles to reduce the risks of failure. All MDE solutions are built on a future-proof, microservices framework designed for agile experience creation. The MACH-based abstraction layer aggregates common business logic to enable CSPs to reuse their existing BSS, so they can build, own, and reuse software components.



Independent, stateless pieces of software



All application functionality is exposed via OpenAPIs



Software is built natively to support cloud deployments



Supports any type of frontend device (cell phone, tablet, laptop, desktop, wearable) without changes to the backend

The MDE catalog-driven platform enables better experiences by easily bundling offerings, products, and services from external partners. It’s simple to test new ideas and deploy new offerings without the traditional development costs and slow timelines. Using a cloud-native design approach MDE is built around microservices, a proven architecture, a no-code UI using headless design, and agile experience creation. CSPs can also offer their B2B customers a cloud infrastructure, connectivity, and service assurance, all bundled into a single, on-demand service that is billed in real-time and transparently settled across partners.
