Mavenir Systems (NYSE:MVNR), a leading provider of software-based IP networking solutions, today announced its advanced SDN-enabled Evolved Packet Core (EPC).

"The SDN EPC is specifically designed to optimise the deployment of data and voice services for mobile operators transforming their networks to 4G LTE," said Pardeep Kohli, President and Chief Executive Officer, Mavenir Systems. "As operators respond to the rapid increase in mobile data usage, adding new proprietary EPC hardware to scale networks linearly is cost prohibitive. Our innovative approach of combining NFV and SDN delivers a truly unique solution that addresses this problem statement."

The Mavenir SDN EPC is based on a unique architecture that combines NFV and SDN technologies into the Evolved Packet Core and is ideally suited to address the challenges of managing the explosive growth in mobile data traffic and real-time communication services that will be driven by voice over LTE. The Mavenir SDN EPC solution is fully virtualised with independently scalable control and media planes, and has the unique capability of managing distributed GTP-aware forwarding planes from a centralised SDN Controller.

Added Kohli:"Our approach makes the wireless network more efficient by moving data closer to the network edge, thus reducing backhaul and latency, which also prepares the network for the stringent latency requirements of LTE Advanced and 5G."

Mavenir provides a full suite of standards-defined EPC functions (SGW, PGW, MME and ePDG) on a virtualised software platform that provides the flexibility and efficiency needed to cost effectively scale Evolved Packet Core networks. Mavenir also provides mobile operators a comprehensive suite of virtualised core network functions, including session border controller (SBC), diameter routing agent (DRA), IP multimedia subsystem (IMS), and security gateway (SEG), under the powerful mOne software platform. Through service chaining of multiple Mavenir functions, operators can simplify network operations, secure the network, and reduce costs ? quickly realising the operational benefits of network functions virtualisation (NFV).
