Mavenir announced its virtualized network slicing software solution that on its newly introduced NFV and container management and orchestration platform, CloudRange.

The new CloudRange Network Slice Suite enable end-to-end network slicing for radio, core and applications. It allows Operators to use their existing network for slicing selected services and create additional slices for new, differentiated services that increase revenues.

The Network Slice Suite works across end to end network and applications to allow criteria that are required for practical deployments such as subscriber data/intelligence in the network, MVNO network setup, and network upgrade with virtualized multi-vendor deployments.

According to the company, the new solution includes slicing selection function (SSF) for radio, NAS network selection function (NNSF) for the packet core and mobility management entities selection and core gateway network selection (CGNS) for the packet core and user plane. Service Orchestration (SO) allows E2E setup of services and interfaces with SDN-C for programming the underlying network.

CloudRange, Mavenir’s network functions virtualization (NFV) and container management and orchestration (MANO) platform, is built with a Cloud Native and Web-Scale architecture, drastically driving down the network economics for mobile operators with scalability, efficiency and automation.

Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO, Mavenir
Having the capability to apply network slicing to existing 4G networks today provides operators with a new set of options to offer new bespoke services and reduce costs of existing traffic. We have built a slicing orchestrator function that works across the radio, the core and applications.

Mchael Howard, Executive Director, Research and Analysis, Carrier Networks, IHS Markit 
Mavenir now offers a new approach with virtualized end-to-end operations including the radio slicing, which changes the cost equation for most operators and makes it easier for them to deploy 4G and 5G networks.
