Vodafone Portugal picks Mavenir’s MAVcore solution

By

Vodafone Portugal will be using the MAVcore solution for its fully containerised Converged Packet Core network after it selected Mavenir as strategic 5G converged core supplier.

The MAVcore solution features the Converged Packet Core and Policy Control. This will transform a containerised and automated cloud-native network, providing flexibility for the launch of 5G standalone applications for Vodafone customers in Portugal.

The 5G Converged Packet Core solution is designed with cloud-native containerised techniques providing a fully scalable and virtualised network architecture. The solution uses software running on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware.

Mavenir Converged Packet Core with multi-access support (2G, 3G, 4G, 5G) allows Communication Service Providers (CSPs) like Vodafone to plan for future growth. It simplifies network transformation and enables automation.

“The industry defines several steps for 5G – the first one was launched back in November – but it is the second step, the 5G standalone Core, that brings the more powerful technology revolution in terms of use cases. For our strategic 5G standalone core supplier, we wanted a vendor who would have innovation at its heart and equally provide us with a technically leading converged Packet Core solution. We have been working on 5G SA with Mavenir in our lab for over one year and are now ready to deliver a cloud-native Packet Core platform that will transform our network and prepare it for powerful applications and differentiating use cases, as the 5G solution evolves,” comments Vodafone Portugal network director Paulino Corrêa.

“We are delighted to now be part of Mavenir’s next-generation Converged Packet Core network under the Spring 3 Cosmos program. We look forward to transforming Vodafone Portugal’s existing network into a dynamic, agile, fully automated for simplified operation and cloud-native based platform,” says Mavenir chief marketing officer Stefano Cantarelli.
