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.”

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 his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

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 Soli...
