Hungary’s Magyar Telekom – a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom – has selected Mavenir to deploy its cloud-native containerised Converged Packet Core.
The solution will lay the foundation for quickly and easily deploying new enterprise applications and services, taking advantage of 5G features such as low latency and network slicing. Using open architecture, it will offer network slicing with dedicated control and user plane network functions for meeting strict service level agreements.
The fully containerised solution is based on stateless microservice architecture that allows better resiliency and faster recovery in the event of network failures. It also enables the easy onboarding of users on Deutsche Telekom Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS).
Laszlo Boka, Platform and Core Services Tribe Lead at Magyar Telekom said: “It was important for us to partner with a software provider that could deliver on three main fronts: a Converged Packet Core to support all access technology integration from 2G to 5G, an open architecture that could run on our specified hardware and software platforms, and seamless integration with third-party network functions.”
Magyar Telekom will use Deutsche Telekom’s locally deployed private cloud solution. The converged architecture of Mavenir’s packet core will support 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G non-standalone (NSA), and 5G standalone (SA) modes and enable all access technologies to run on the common cloud-native platform provided by Deutsche Telekom.
Ashok Khuntia, President for Core Networks at Mavenir, said, “Working with Mobile Network Operators globally, we’ve created an agile software delivery process that accommodates specific integration and feature requirements. Integrating Mavenir’s Converged Packet Core into Magyar Telekom’s existing network will enable a fully automated network with the reliability, scale and flexibility to deliver innovative services.”
