Telefónica Deutschland is deploying Mavenir’s virtualized IMS solution (vIMS) for VoLTE and VoWiFi in their nationwide UNICA Data Centers Infrastructure, which is based on the Telefonica Group blueprint for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) architecture.
The solution will support mobile and fixed services for more than 45 million customer connections. The NFV environment is based on OpenStack and will include automation, life cycle management and integration with Management and Orchestration (MANO) capabilities from the Telefónica UNICA platform. The Mavenir advanced vIMS solution will enable automation from day one and will support existing voice digital services as well as the launch of new services.
Mavenir claims that it is a perfect match with Telefonica UNICA NFV strategy, where the company can offer very flexible and optimized solutions to Telefonica, reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and opening countless possibilities of new services. Mavenir vIMS will allow Telefónica Deutschland to offer new propositions for all customer segments, moving the Telco services to the new era of IP convergence and Virtualisation.
