Transforming Networks with Cloud-Native IMS is Critical for 5G Automation and Future-Proofing Voice Services
Mavenir’s Cloud-Native IMS platform serves as the foundational technology for all IP communications services in 4G and 5G networks. CSPs can achieve web-scale economics, increase productivity, and leverage current network investments with a 5G-ready, cloud-native IMS platform.
Transform Your Network for 5G
Now is the time for CSPs to leverage cloud technology as they prepare for the 5G future. Mavenir’s Cloud-Native IMS helps CSPs evolve today’s mobile voice services, building on existing 4G networks to prepare for the 5G evolution. Cloud-native solutions offer CSPs the ability to:
- Move to web-scale networks
- Maximize hardware resource efficiency
- Enable faster service delivery
- Increase operational productivity
Cloud-Native IMS also provides continuity in voice services that is often overlooked in the rush to move to 5G. Now, CSPs can seamlessly evolve voice services and the access technology changes from 2G/3G to 4G (aka VoLTE) and now 5G. Mavenir eases the transition with support for both VoLTE and Voice over New Radio (VoNR) or 5G Voice using a common IMS core. This enables a single IMS investment to support multiple generations of voice services over 4G or 5G, guarantees service parity, and facilitates voice continuity between 4G and 5G.
Now you can operate in any cloud environment, public or private, where any device or service, and all applications can run on an automated network, utilizing open architecture, containers, and artificial intelligence. A microservices architecture, built for the cloud allows CSPs to utilize the same IMS core for VoLTE and 5G voice and enjoy a more efficient deployment of new services. When combined with Mavenir’s Rich Communications Services , Cloud-Native IMS enables even more innovation in the 5G era.
Generate New Revenue
As CSPs strive to keep up with flat to decreasing subscriber ARPUs, the need has increased to offer differentiated services to enterprise and consumers such as;
- HD Voice Over LTE (VoLTE)
- Wi-Fi Calling (VoWiFi)
- Messaging as a Platform (MaaP)
- Mobile Business Communications and Collaboration
- Rich Communication Services (RCS)
While others claim to offer a cloud-native IMS solution that is scalable, agile, with robust management of load and resiliency — the proof is in the architecture and deployments. Mavenir is the leading provider of cloud-native, containerized IMS globally for mobile core.
Proven, Reliable and Built for Web-Scale
Many CSPs have yet to move to a 4G IMS Core have deployed early 4G IMS networks, predominantly for fixed-voice networks on older purpose-built hardware or ATCA chassis. Ultimately, all CSPs need to get to fully virtualized, cloud-native networks to remain viable and competitive in the long term. While a move to a fully virtualized IMS platform is not an easy process as providers must deal with legacy equipment, operating systems, and ultimately customer migrations, there is significant long-term value in upgrading and will give CSPs more control and reduced operating costs.
Only a virtualized network, evolved into a fully web-scale platform, can meet the requirements for a successful 5G network. Mavenir’s Cloud-Native IMS platform is completely virtualized – with no legacy hardware platforms or migration from a fixed IMS platform. This mobile-first architecture has been deployed globally in a variety of large multivendor environments offering distinct advantages:
- Proven scale (both up and down) with carrier-grade reliability in large mobile networks
- Full standards compliance and interface interoperability
- Flexible framework supporting a multitude of applications and services
- Field hardened advanced load-balancing and resiliency features
These capabilities can change the economic equation for mobile operators and make 5G networks a reality.
