Mavenir is focused on building the next-generation flexible Radio Access Network (RAN) by enabling the mobile networks to efficiently handle higher data volume, connect exponentially more devices, significantly reduce latency and bring new levels of reliability. Mavenir SmartC-RAN™ solution incorporates cloud and virtualization techniques that enable mobile networks to flex and adapt based on the usage and coverage. While the 5G(NR) is still being finalized, we believe it is important to create a RAN architecture that can address the immediate challenges of 4G today while being ready for 5G.
Founded by industry veterans with extensive experience in virtualized LTE core networks and Radio Access technologies, Mavenir is focused on paving the way for seamless superfast 5G networks. Mavenir is backed by LiveOak Venture Partners and Mitel. In addition to funding from Mitel, Mavenir will license Mitel Mobile technology for Evolved Packet Core (EPC) to support service providers as they build 5G networks for the Internet of Things. Mavenir is based in Richardson, Texas, with additional development centers in Ottawa, Canada, and Bengaluru, India.
The 5G networks are expected to address a very wide set of use cases, ranging from one extreme to the other in terms of speed, latency and mobility requirements (very high speed/throughput at high latency, to very low speed/throughput at ultra-low latency). These use cases may be categorized as:
The Mavenir SmartC-RAN™ solution is based on the COTS portfolio from Intel, addressing the technology challenges of mmWave, shared access management, and aggregation mechanisms for the RAN evolution to 5G. Mavenir's innovative SmartRRU™ and SmartC-BBU™ are designed to address today's LTE network needs (e.g. 3GPP Rel13 LAA & 5CCA) with the vision for easy upgrade to 5G(NR) – providing investment protection and deployment flexibility.
