Mavenir | July 12, 2022

Mavenir, the Network Software Provider building the future of networks with cloud-native software that runs on any cloud and transforms the way the world connects, today announced multiple Communications Service Providers (CSPs) are upgrading their Business Support System (BSS) with Mavenir’s Digital Enablement Platform (MDE) to offer new digital services that monetize 5G network investments MDE is a cloud-native, catalog-driven digital BSS that enables CSPs to easily create new 5G digital offerings or complete the 5G network transformation with charging and mediation functions and can also be used to design a digital marketplace experience, bundling cross-industry partner products and services into unified offerings. “With Mavenir’s MDE platform, CSPs can innovate fearlessly by rapidly introducing new services, and capture their customers’ interest, to become an integral part of their digital life,” said Sandeep Singh, GM Digital Enablement at Mavenir. MDE can run as a comprehensive BSS or importantly, as a digital overlay with existing legacy BSS for minimal risk and disruption. BSS digital overlay systems can help CSPs to maximize returns in the 5G era. Analysys Mason forecasts, “The digital overlay approach can also reduce costs considerably, potentially saving CSPs up to 50% over 3-5 years when compared with traditional transformation approaches.1” Recent deployment examples of Mavenir’s MDE include: - A leading CSP in Japan for business-to-business (B2B) mobility services CSP successfully launched its Mobility Bundle Services targeted toward business customers. The typical service includes a bundle of SIM+Handsets purchased in bulk (10s-1000s). The BSS provided a first-of-its-kind agile, co-development, automated CI/CD enabling quarterly updates including modules like Product Catalog, CRM, CPQ, Order Management, Provisioning, Inventory tracking, Offline Rating & Charging, Billing, Invoicing, Payments and Collections. Mavenir’s digital BSS, deployed as overlay BSS, is the primary for managing B2B customer account lifecycle and connects back to the existing consumer BSS, to leverage capabilities for Individual SIM activation, Number Portability workflow, Resource Inventory management and Network Mediation. Deployment is on CSP's private cloud over the Kubernetes-based Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS) and Platform as a service (PaaS) layer. - Large MVNO in Germany transitioning to MNO deploying MDE converged charging system (CCS) & Charging Gateway Function (CGF) for 4G+5G Converged Charging Transitioning to becoming an MNO with owned RAN, Core, IT, BSS, and Charging system. The CCS includes the 4G OCS enabling Voice, SMS, Data service rating, and charging on real-time Diameter interfaces by integrating with the EPC and IMS network elements. The same core CCS engine also includes 5G CHF, integrated with Mavenir 5GC (5G Core) NFs. The Charging Gateway Function (CGF), also part of the CCS solution, provides for a modern microservice-based network and billing mediation functionality. While the first set of services, including 5G FWA is expected to go live in 2022, the solution is designed to deliver charging for Voice, Messaging, Data (4G+5G eMBB) and IoT in truly agile CI/CD based updates over the next two years. Deployment is on CSP's private cloud over the Kubernetes-based CaaS and PaaS layer. - Greenfield CSP in Guyana selects MDE for E2E BSS and Charging Deploying end-to-end BSS and Charging for their 4G+5G Mobile and Fixed Wireless service rollout. The first phase of this multi-phase enables the CSP to launch Prepaid LTE Voice, Data, and SMS services in 2022, leveraging a 4G OCS (Online Charging System) solution for prepaid voice, data, and messaging charging. The second phase will introduce Postpaid services built on top of the BSS. The final phase includes the launch of the 5G eMBB service that will be deployed using MDE 5G CCS integrated with the other vendor's 5GC. About Mavenir: Mavenir is building the future of networks and pioneering advanced technology, focusing on the vision of a single, software-based automated network that runs on any cloud.

An Extension of its NetCloud Architecture Addressing the Intersection of 5G, SD-WAN, and Zero Trust Networking

Cradlepoint | August 18, 2022

Cradlepoint, the global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network solutions, today announced NetCloud Exchange, an architectural extension of its NetCloud solution, to help lean IT organisations transform their business and amplify their 5G experience with advanced SD-WAN and Zero Trust capabilities. NetCloud Exchange is an intuitive, cloud-native solution built on policy-driven, zero-trust principles that delivers multiple SD-WAN and security services. As business transformation continues to fuel increased cloud, mobility, and IoT adoption, WAN architectures have proven too limited and inflexible for securely connecting distributed enterprise sites, vehicles, remote employees, and devices. 5G is quickly emerging as an essential WAN infrastructure and will drive WAN expansion and evolution. However, these trends can produce a larger attack surface, unique, cloud-driven traffic patterns, and a greater number of connected endpoints. “Most network solutions today are designed for wired-only deployments, With the new NetCloud Exchange extension, NetCloud now offers new 5G- and security-first services to support enterprise WAN transformation, including end-to-end secure connectivity, hybrid SD-WAN, and Zero Trust networking – all lifecycle-managed through a single-pane-of-glass.” Todd Krautkremer, Chief Marketing Officer for Cradlepoint The following new NetCloud Services will be delivered based on the NetCloud Exchange extension: Secure Connect: An agile LTE/5G VPN-like service that enables secure end-to-end connections for thousands of locations in just 3-simple steps. It overcomes the operational complexities of traditional VPNs through automated tunnel orchestration, efficient encryption, name-based routing, and simplified IP address management. NetCloud Exchange Secure Connect utilises Zero Trust principles that include IP address cloaking and no default network access to change the traditional VPN paradigm from “connect and then secure”, to “secure and then connect” provide least privileged-based access. Advanced SD-WAN: A future service that extends Cradlepoint’s current SD-WAN capabilities by adding end-to-end support and advanced application optimisation. This enhanced service will enable features like 5G network slicing, simplified configuration at scale, more advanced cloud integration, more resilient and flexible traffic steering, and more scalable and resilient private and cloud data centre terminations. Zero Trust Network Access: A future service that is simple to deploy and uses flexible, fine-grained user-, site-, application-, and resource-based policies that leverage identity, context and 5G attributes to control network access. All services are delivered using the NetCloud Exchange Service Gateway — a scalable, resilient, software-based solution for private and cloud data centres that aggregates remote connections, provides flow-level visibility, and acts as the policy-enforcement point for the services it supports. “Over the years, WAN technologies have gone through a number of iterations, from MPLS to broadband VPN and from on-premise to the cloud,” said Paul Chakour, Director of Technology & Innovation, Wevo. “Cradlepoint NetCloud Exchange offers simplified SD-WAN configuration and orchestration and what we’re really excited about, is that the new SD-WAN service offers advanced cloud and 5G integration, future-proofing our customers’ investments and providing mass scalability.” “As businesses increasingly adopt cloud solutions and operate remote and mobile workplaces more and more, we’re seeing rapid growth in demand for 5G infrastructure in Australia,” said Stephen Aravopoulos Managing Director, MobileCorp. “The great thing for our customers is that the new service from Cradlepoint is simple to deploy and manage, is secure, and is compatible with existing Cradlepoint edge router solutions, and we’re excited to be able to offer our customers a pay-as-you-grow model, where additional capacity can be added on demand.” "As organisations continue to undergo digital transformation, IT teams must evolve how they manage the network edge,” said Rohit Mehra, group vice president, network and telecom infrastructure at IDC. “Cradlepoint’s innovation in Wireless WAN is enabling enterprises to deploy 5G with the management and security functions needed to scale.” NetCloud Exchange Secure Connect and NetCloud Exchange Service Gateway are available immediately while other solutions will be available in the fourth quarter of 2022.
