Radisys and Mavenir Partner on VoLTE Deployments in Europe and the U.S.
HILLSBORO, Ore. --(Business Wire)--
Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a market leader enabling wireless
infrastructure solutions, is partnering with Mavenir
Systems, a leading provider of software-based networking solutions,
on Voice over LTE (News - Alert) (VoLTE) deployments based on Mavenir's mOne®
Convergence Platform integrated with Radisys' Software
Media Resource Function (MRF). These can both also be deployed in
virtualized cloud environments, providing scalability as operators grow
their VoLTE subscriber base. Radisys and Mavenir have secured a growing
list of VoLTE wins in both the U.S. and Europe, and are actively engaged
in multiple trials in both regions. Leading operators are expected to go
live with the joint VoLTE solution in the second half of 2013.
"The integration of our mOne® Convergence (News - Alert) Platform with
Radisys' MRF has provided the economic and functional differentiation
for growing commercial success for our VoLTE and mobile service
deployments, including the world's first VoLTE deployment at MetroPCS,"
said Ian Maclean, vice president, Strategy and Marketing, Mavenir
Operators that have rolled out LTE networks are turning to VoLTE and
Rich Communications Services (RCS) delivering High Definition (HD)
voice, Video Ringback Tones (VRBT), Interactive Voice and Video Response
(IVVR), Conferencing and other value-added services to win back revenue
from over-the-top (OTT) and content providers that have been the early
beneficiaries of LTE's increased bandwidth and access speeds.
Next-generation IP Multimedia Subsystem (News - Alert) (IMS) architectures, with an MRF
processing real-time audio and video media streams, are the underlying
foundation supporting these services.
"While 2012 was the year of LTE, 2013 is shaping up to be the year of
VoLTE service rollouts," said Phil Kendall, Director of Strategy
Analytics' Wireless Operator Strategies program. "South Korea, Japan and
the USA will lead the way with VoLTE, though will be joined by a wave of
mobile operators globally over the next 24 months as they look to secure
and evolve their communications businesses for the next decade. We
predict 1.6B LTE connections by end of 2017, and VoLTE and other mobile
video services are essential for growing revenues beyond LTE data plans.
Standards-based IMS ervice delivery platforms, such as Mavenir's mOne®
Convergence Platform and Radisys' MRF, deliver compelling video and
voice services that maximize revenue options for operators."
Providing mobile operators with improved economics, scalability and
next-generation communications services, the deployment-proven Mavenir
mOne® Convergence Platform addresses subscribers' needs in a
mobile market that is changing rapidly. Offering voice, video,
multimedia and social messaging, the platform performs an integral role
in subscriber growth and revenue generation for mobile operators. Its
built-in network optimization and open network interfaces bring
additional cost reduction to operators, along with flexibility for new
The collaboration of Radisys' Software MRF and Mavenir's mOne®
comes at an ideal time, given the growing number of VoLTE trials
underway. Radisys' Software MRF can be deployed to run as a virtualized
application with other virtualized applications on the same server
hardware in a cloud data center, providing scalability as operators grow
their VoLTE subscriber base to accommodate increased market demand. It
also comes with built-in support for AMR-WB high definition audio codec
specified for VoLTE devices, while supporting automatic transcoding with
other audio codecs that might be necessary when connecting a VoLTE call
to a 3G and PSTN device. In addition, the Software MRF provides
operators the necessary flexibility to support small trial deployments
all the way up to thousands of endpoints on a single server.
Radisys' Software MRF shares the same capabilities as the rest of the
Radisys MRF product family. This provides Mavenir's customers an upgrade
path to the powerful MPX-12000
Broadband MRF, based on Radisys' T-Series
ATCA platform. The MPX-12000 has been selected and is currently
undergoing final interoperability testing for a VoLTE trial with a Tier1
operator in India.
"Enabling operators to generate new revenue through VoLTE, video
value-added services, conferencing and more is at the core of the
investments we continue to make in our MRF product portfolio," said Amit
Agarwal, vice president and general manager, Software and Solutions,
Radisys. "Our growing commercial success with our partner Mavenir is a
testament that we've made the right investments. To date, Radisys' MRF
is participating in seven VoLTE trial deployments and is clearly
emerging as the undisputed global market leader of MRF solution for
VoLTE and RCS."
