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.
