Mavenir Launches VoWiFi for Cable

RICHARDSON, Texas -- Mavenir Systems® (NYSE:MVNR), a leading provider of software-based networking solutions, today announced the availability of its Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) solution for cable operators.

Mavenir’s VoWi-Fi solution is a complete offering that includes session control, application/messaging servers, access/border gateways, subscriber management/activation systems, and clients. It integrates with an operator’s existing IMS core network or can be deployed as a greenfield network to offer voice, video, and messaging applications using Wi-Fi access. Mavenir is engaged with multiple cable operators to plan VoWi-Fi as a part of their MVNO strategies or as a standalone offering paired with the standard video and content distribution offer.

Cable operators have been rapidly expanding their Wi-Fi reach and recognize the opportunity to leverage the ubiquity of Wi-Fi access to provide cost effective wireless service to better serve their customers. Voice over Wi-Fi provides cable operators the opportunity to bundle TV and internet service, with a low cost mobile service that only works on Wi-Fi.

“We believe that VoWiFi changes the competitive landscape for cable operators,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and Chief Executive Officer, Mavenir Systems. “Mavenir’s converged IMS solution provides cable operators the benefit of seamless mobility between Wi-Fi and cellular networks, as well as proven interoperability and a native user experience on the latest Wi-Fi Calling enabled devices, such as Apple’s iPhone 6.”

As part of Mavenir’s virtualized portfolio, the VoWi-Fi solution leverages Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to deploy new services on service providers’ cloud infrastructure. It is based on Mavenir’s mOne® Convergence platform and proven technology including the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) Core and Application Servers and cross-platform mobile clients. Mavenir is the only provider to have over thirty virtualized software products that enable the complete delivery of a cloud-based, end-to-end IMS network and is leveraging its pedigree in transforming mobile networks through software-based solutions and virtualization to rapidly create new and differentiated services for cable operators.
