The cloud-native architecture where applications and services are purpose-built for the cloud model offers easy scaling, hardware decoupling, agility, portability, and resilience across public, private, and hybrid clouds. A granular microservice architecture provides carrier-grade resiliency that meets web-scale requirements such as high availability, security, and performance.

100% Cloud-Native, 100% Containerized, 100% Multi-Generational Support​

  • Support existing subscribers while deploying new commercial-grade 5G use cases, standalone or not ​
  • Reduce costs with a light hardware footprint while fine-grained microservices lend control and simplicity to the environment
  • Rely on a cloud-native environment to create and sustain a culture where building, testing, releasing, and deploying happens swiftly and consistently

Service-Based, Access Agnostic Core Architecture

  • Use open, standards-based APIs to provide flexible, extensible service agility
  • Rapidly launch new services and use AI/ML to scale networks automatically and reduce OPEX
  •  Serve all types of access (3GPP, non-3GPP, and wireline convergence) using a common core that allows seamless interworking between them and enables operational efficiencies

Converged Packet Core

Mavenir’s Converged Packet Core accelerates the move to 5G by supporting a flexible evolutionary path with minimal risk, unlimited scale, and greatly improved speed, security, and reliability. This fully-containerized, cloud-native Converged Packet Core solution provides support for “all Gs” on one network that can be deployed on any cloud.

Converged to the Core

Mavenir’s Converged Packet Core solution offers 5GC NF applications that are de-coupled and built independently of the platform. With the ability to run in any underlying CaaS, PaaS, and IaaS layer, Mavenir provides a truly disaggregated and independently scalable packet core architecture.​

Rely on a network that is customizable, better performing, and can launch new services at rapid speed. Open APIs can integrate with any 3rd party observability framework and provide flexible, extensible service agility.

Mavenir is committed to changing network economics and driving positive business outcomes. Mavenir’s packet core network architecture simplifies network transformation and focuses on core principles that consistently result in customer success.​
