With its new RCS Platform and Hub, Mavenir provides Communications Service Providers (CSPs) with an innovative approach to quickly and efficiently deploy secure and advanced communications, while capitalizing on new monetization services but without the high costs and complexity associated with large-scale network infrastructure projects.
The Mavenir RCS Platform can be easily deployed either directly in the operator network, as a Mavenir-hosted model or managed across a hybrid model that results in a combination of both. This unique approach, allows CSPs to decide which functionalities they want to remain in their network, such as customer data - bringing back control to the operators and expanding their role in the digital economy.
To underscore its commitment to value-added RCS evolution, the company has also ensured its RCS platform provides an open environment that can leverage the innovation of the wider industry ecosystem so that CSPs can fully benefit from the emerging opportunities of RCS.
“We’ve listened to our service provider customers across the world who want a new approach to RCS, something that lowers the barriers to entry, enables faster deployment options and drives new monetization opportunities,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO at Mavenir. “As a leader in software-based, virtualized network solutions with messaging systems at our core, no one understands RCS better than Mavenir, having the largest global installed base of SMS, MMS, Voicemail and RCS systems, and carrying billions of messages every day across the world. Our RCS Platform and Hub can meet CSPs advanced communications requirements, where we can connect them to other service providers and ultimately to billions of subscribers, without the efforts of building out their own networks. One of our strategies is to enable connectivity of SMSC and MMSC to our cloud-based RCS Hub for convergence and backward compatibility.”
These new additions to Mavenir’s suite of RCS solutions, provides CSPs with greater control over their RCS deployment options, driving openness and interoperability. Key benefits include:
- Operators can remain in control of the messaging ecosystem and customer data.
- Time to market of services is reduced from months to weeks for full suite of RCS services that meet GSMA’s RCS specifications and Universal Profile standards.
- Accelerates the ability to extend offerings to include fully converged IP messaging solutions.
- Access to additional monetization opportunities via new services such as Multi-ID, Chatbots and Messaging as a Platform (MaaP).
- The integrated solution also supports a wide range of RCS-enabled devices and contains the latest network based Security, Spam, and Fraud protection using Mavenir’s machine-learning based Spam and Fraud Platform and Signaling Firewall.
- An open and interoperable RCS ecosystem not dominated by 3rd party providers.
Mavenir’s unique offering in RCS solutions is underpinned by its dedication to driving an industry-wide ecosystem, open to any business who plays a part in advanced communications. This will support the roll out of richer experiences to device users and provide CSPs with access to new monetization channels from enterprise application to person (A2P) flows to dynamic mobile marketing and chatbot frameworks. Such a capability is critical, as CSPs move to NFV environments, and start to support Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G network traffic.
“Achieving global scale remains a challenge for RCS,” said Pamela Clark-Dickson, lead analyst, Digital Communications and Social Networking at Ovum. “If RCS is to succeed, it will require more operator RCS deployments, more interconnection between operators’ RCS services, greater penetration of interworking native RCS clients such as Android Messages, and an ecosystem that enables monetization, including engagement between enterprises and consumers.”
“As an industry, we can create incredible business opportunities from RCS, IoT and 5G, and it is our job to ensure our CSP customers can continue to grow lucrative new revenue streams from the latest services. Their success is our success, and a key principle of our business is to work side-by-side with CSPs to build intelligent, flexible solutions which can be the catalyst for innovation and growth. Together with our partners of more than 350+ operators, we can accelerate next generation communications for our combined 3.5 billion subscriber base, moving them into the future. Unlike other widely-publicized over-the-top (OTT) solutions, with the Mavenir platform, CSPs will remain in control of their services and subscriber data, and can launch tailored new offerings to suit users’ behaviours, generating revenue quickly without having to build out their RCS networks from scratch. They can simply connect to the Mavenir Cloud for immediate access to infrastructure and services,” concluded Kohli.
Mavenir’s industry first commercially available RCS solution currently handles live traffic for millions of subscribers globally, supporting numerous customers and devices.

Now that the world has connected “things,” we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Eng...

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...
