Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ:RSYS), a market leader enabling wireless infrastructure solutions, today announced new trial wins including global virtualized cloud deployments for Voice over LTE (VoLTE), in partnership with Mavenir Systems (NYSE:MVNR), a leading provider of software-based networking solutions. Mavenir’s mOne® Convergence Platform, combined with Radisys’ Media Resource Function (MRF), are now deployed in a growing list of mobile operator VoLTE rollouts in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Customers using Mavenir’s mOne® Convergence Platform with Radisys’ MRF include Vodafone, Tele2, Deutsche Telekom and MetroPCS (now T-Mobile).
Adding VoLTE to LTE Rollouts – a Lucrative Opportunity for Mobile Operators
As a significant revenue stream for global mobile operators, voice is central to their profitability. While investments in LTE to date have centered on meeting growing mobile data demand and capitalizing on revenues from data plans, mobile operators that migrate their voice service from legacy 3G or 2G network architectures to their LTE networks through investment in an IMS architecture have several advantages. Operators that support voice, data and video services all on a single LTE network can realize OPEX savings, as managing two networks is far more costly than one network. At the same time, operators must make decisions on their spectrum strategy for supporting the exponential growth in mobile traffic. Operators that deploy VoLTE can refarm their existing 3G and 2G allocations to service additional LTE growth, as an alternative to purchasing expensive new spectrum at auction.
Radisys’ MRF as part of an IMS architecture supports the real-time media processing requirements for VoLTE and other video value-added services (VAS), enabling operators that invest in an IMS architecture now to reap the benefits of VoLTE deployments for years to come. Mavenir’s IMS mOne® Convergence Platform uses Radisys’ MRF offerings for its VoLTE solutions.
“During the past year, we’ve helped mobile operators transform their networks and we’ve seen a major uptick in VoLTE trials and deployments with our mobile operator customers around the world, and we are now delivering VoLTE to the cloud,” said Ian Maclean, vice president, Strategy and Marketing, Mavenir Systems. “Leading Tier-1 mobile operators are currently deploying Mavenir’s virtualized IMS technology, powered by Radisys’ MRF, as part of their VoLTE/IMS rollouts. Virtualized IMS solutions can be flexibly deployed to meet business needs such as multi-tenancy and capacity elasticity, an attractive proposition for mobile operators.”
“More and more mobile operators are recognizing that VoLTE makes sense,” said Grant Henderson, vice president of marketing and product management, Radisys. “Adding VoLTE with their LTE rollouts delivers a sound business case, as the near-term virtualized IMS investments to support VoLTE and other revenue generating services can also save millions down the road in network operation and spectrum costs.”
Mavenir integrates the full range of Radisys’ flexible media processing solutions, from using Radisys’ MRF for virtualized cloud deployments and its Software MRF on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) servers to leveraging the high-density capabilities of its MPX-12000 Broadband MRF. Radisys’ broad MRF portfolio provides scalability and an easy migration path.
“Radisys is pleased to partner with Mavenir, a leader in VoLTE service solutions, and are thrilled with our growing success together helping mobile operators achieve the benefits of VoLTE around the globe,” added Henderson. “Supporting VoLTE, Video VAS, conferencing, and many other services is at the core of the investments that we continue to make in our MRF product portfolio. Our goal is to help mobile operators maximize service revenue opportunities from their LTE network investments.”

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
