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.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
