Mavenir Systems Brings RCS to Life

-Expands converged services product portfolio -offers operators fast start to advanced services

RICHARDSON, Texas, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mavenir Systems, a leading innovator of infrastructure solutions for mobile operators, today confirmed that the RCS 5 version of the GSMA's Rich Communication Services has been fully integrated into its converged services product portfolio.  The development makes the company the first to offer full RCS 5 solutions including voice, video and messaging solutions.

The latest RCS standard brings together RCS v1-4 and RCS-e v1.2 – adds Converged IP Messaging (CPM) for service interworking to SMS/MMS and will enable mobile carriers to have full interoperability of services across each other's networks.

The confirmation comes hard on the heels of the 31st October announcement by MetroPCS of its Mavenir-enabled first commercial launch of RCS 5 services.  As a result of the launch, MetroPCS is delivering new innovative features such as a mobile address book enhanced with social presence and one-click content sharing, IP voice and video calling, and threaded multimedia messaging.  MetroPCS was able to quickly launch its RCS 5.0 services as a new service on the same Mavenir mOne® Platform that enables MetroPCS' first-to-market Voice over LTE (VoLTE) service.

"Operators are looking for innovative services and ideas to monetize their investment in LTE networks, create a competitive edge and compete against the so-called over-the-top (OTT) providers and other rivals," said Pardeep Kohli, president & chief executive officer of Mavenir Systems.  "RCS can help provide those services quickly and with an improved return on investment for operators as they build out their core LTE networks."

The GSMA welcomed the early deployment of a Rich Communication Service that includes a joyn™ accredited set of services based on the latest RCS standard by Mavenir and MetroPCS. joyn, represents ubiquity, security, service quality and interconnection and is available for operators to use in order to give one global 'face' to RCS services. Through the joyn brand users will know that the device is RCS enabled , which means it automatically 'knows and shows' ways to share with contacts via chat, video, call or files, at any moment in time.

"We believe that all mobile subscribers deserve to enjoy the ever-growing richness of services that RCS delivers and the speed to market of new IP based communications services," said Attilio Zani, senior director, GSMA. "The GSMA's joyn accreditation process allows operators to swiftly deploy a robust set of services for their end users, with the knowledge that they will interoperate seamlessly around the world."

Mavenir's suite of RCS application servers - including the Presence Server, MMTEL Telephony Application Server (TAS), Rich Messaging Server (RMS), - are all based on its mOne® Convergence Platform which is designed to simplify carriers' network transformations.

Mavenir will be at Mobile World Congress Booth 6E60 with an RCS demo.  If you can't wait, contact [email protected] for a demonstration.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
