The explosive growth of mobile data combined with emerging machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity means that mobile operators need native virtualization solutions now after having seen that the node based ported virtualization fails to create flexible, scalable, and easy-to-deploy packet cores. Brocade’s highly-differentiated vEPC solution has unique architectural attributes that leverage cloud computing, network virtualization, and software networking technologies to deliver higher scale and efficiency on industry-standard x86-based servers. The software can scale from a single microprocessing core to a rack of servers depending on the use case as it maps dimensions of mobile workload independently to cloud resources, while maintaining the capability to integrate with traditional node-based EPC architectures.
Combined with Mavenir’s existing Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) offerings, the vEPC is a key part of a mobile edge computing and IOT strategy. Supporting low-latency use cases at the network edge enables service providers and enterprises to connect mobile and IoT devices, data centers, and public or private clouds.
“We are building a 5G architecture with control plane-user plane separation and stateless VNFs. The small footprint, combined with a highly scalable architecture and built-in HSS, is ideal for Fixed Wireless Access (FWA), private LTE and industrial IoT spaces,” said Ashok Khuntia, GM and EVP of Mavenir’s Access Products division. “When bundled with our virtualized radio access network product, Mavenir offers a complete, fully virtualized end-to-end next generation core and access network.”
“As the industry transitions towards LTE and 5G, there is a critical and growing requirement for a new, more distributed network architecture and that includes a flexible, microservices-based EPC that allows for the independent scaling of control, data and users in response to different workloads. It provides inherent capability for network slicing,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO of Mavenir. “We aim to be a key provider of next-generation network services, with a path to 5G and edge computing for our customers.”
Kohli added, “With this acquisition, Mavenir continues to deliver the innovation and differentiated services that customers expect from us.”
In connection with the transaction, Mavenir is hiring certain Brocade employees associated with the vEPC business. This team will be working closely together with Mavenir to support customers of Brocade vEPC as well as deliver differentiable end-to-end solutions in future to ensure continued support for customers.
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Mavenir is the leader in accelerating and redefining network transformation for Service Providers, by offering a comprehensive product portfolio across every layer of the network infrastructure stack. From 4G and 5G application/service layers to packet core and RAN – Mavenir leads the way in evolved, cloud-native networking solutions enabling innovative and secure experiences for end users.
Through its industry first VoLTE, VoWiFi, Advanced Messaging (RCS), Multi-ID, Visual Voicemail and Cloud RAN solutions, and serving 350+ CSPs across 3.5 billion subscribers, Mavenir’s platform enables Service Providers to successfully deliver their next generation vision today and realize new revenue streams and operational efficiencies. www.mavenir.com.
