Radisys® 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 (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 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 Systems.
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 (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 service 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 business models.
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.”
Radisys will be showcasing its Media Resource Function solutions in Stand 5G34, Hall 5 at Mobile World Congress, February 25-28 in Barcelona. To schedule a meeting with Radisys’ wireless infrastructure experts, contact [email protected].

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value. In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT influence Big Data: Device, Connectivity, Context, and Intelligence. He will dive deep to the matrix...

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied ho...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
