Mavenir™ Virtualized RCS Solution Wins Best RCS at 2014 IMS Industry Awards

Mavenir Systems®, a leading provider of software-based mobile communications solutions, today announced that its virtualized Rich Communication Services (RCS) platform designed for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) environments received the award for Best RCS Package at the Informa IMS Industry Awards, which took place at the IMS World Forum 2014 in Barcelona.

Mavenir’s virtualized RCS solution conforms to GSMA Blackbird v3 and provides a complete suite of services and capabilities including:

  • Real-time interactive instant and multimedia 1:1 and group messaging
  • Real-time voice and video calling and conferencing
  • Rich contextual communications and content delivery
  • Personalized social presence, location sharing and multi-device availability
  • Persistent user content storage and message archival
  • Security features including anti-spam filtering

Mavenir’s RCS platform enables mobile operators to offer fully interoperable OTT-like (Over-The-Top) services that are native to the phone and not tied to any specific community of users or social network. Mavenir’s virtualized RCS platform includes Mavenir’s Rich Messaging Server (RMS), mStore™ and Presence and Resource List Server (PRS), which are flexibly deployed on cloud-based infrastructure and provide a seamless evolution path to NFV architectures.

“Top tier operators globally are leveraging virtualization to evolve into software defined operators with efficient and simplified networks,” said Ian Maclean, Vice President of Strategy and Marketing, Mavenir Systems. “Mavenir’s solutions provide our customers improved service agility, greater deployment flexibility, time to market advantage, and capex/opex savings. This award is recognition of our unique approach to providing innovative virtualized solutions that transform mobile networks to 4G LTE.“

This technology leverages Mavenir’s expertise in RCS solutions gained from working with 14 mobile operators globally.

Also shortlisted for the IMS Awards this year were Mavenir’s Web RTC Gateway and IMS Mobile Core. Along with the virtualized RCS platform, these products leverage NFV to optimally scale and deploy on mobile operators’ cloud-based infrastructure. They are based on Mavenir's mOne® Convergence Platform and proven technology including Unified Access Gateway (UAG), Call Session Control Function (CSCF) and Session Border Controller (SBC) products.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
