RICHARDSON, Texas -- Mavenir Systems (NYSE: MVNR), today announced the general availability of its Session Border Controller (SBC). Mavenir’s next generation SBC is specifically designed for wireless applications and addresses the demands for mobility, scalability and quality of service as required by Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Rich Communication Services (RCS) services.

Mavenir’s SBC provides the full suite of standards-defined wireless functions needed to launch VoLTE and RCS services, which mobile operators globally plan to commercially launch starting in early 2014.

“We believe that as VoLTE and RCS services are launched and carriers start peering at the IP layer, the demand will increase and traffic will grow,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and Chief Executive Officer, Mavenir Systems. “Our next generation SBC is built for wireless services and mobility, and is basically redefining Border Control.”

Conventional SBCs, based on purpose built hardware and designed for Voice over IP (VoIP) in Enterprise and Fixed networks, are not suited for the varied traffic models that characterize these new IP-based wireless services.

Mavenir’s SBC is a software-based, carrier grade solution that can be deployed on cloud-based infrastructures using Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Network (SDN) technologies, and its architecture provides the flexibility needed to adapt to the varied traffic models that these IP-based services impose on mobile operator networks.

NFV transition must marry capable HW in the cloud
The transition to NFV is undeniable. As all communications and content become data, transmitted over IP, communication vendors will be forced to transition to virtualized NFV solutions. However somewhere in the cloud, whether it is a Data Center or a Telecom cloud, Hardware technology from folks like ZNYX Networks is needed to deliver packets at line-rate to the VM.
