Vendor Interoperability with Service-Based Architecture
A Service-Based Architecture (SBA) allows Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to source the best independent vendors based on their expertise. This flexibility enables new business opportunities and avoids the lock-in of a single vendor’s roadmap.
It’s time to replace longstanding and significant investments that resist change and openness. The traditional use of a single vendor for mobile network software drives inevitable high investments and costs for integration, maintenance, and licenses. Mavenir’s Dejan Leskaroski shares thoughts on how using an SBA can drive the change CSPs, enterprises, and other industry players need to break free and deliver the innovative 5G services customers want.
Mavenir supports this new ecosystem that enriches a mobile network by bringing specific vendor expertise, more competitive NF features, diverse service types, and reduced costs. SBA brings the opportunity to enable a converged digital future by re-architecting mobile networks to become more open, cloud-native, and shift to a software paradigm that makes it easier to integrate, re-use, and re-configure networks.
