Mavenir, an enabler in accelerating software network transformation and transforming mobile network economics for communications service providers (CSPs), has been selected by Cellcom, provider of nationwide communications services throughout Michigan and Wisconsin, to deploy its virtualized IMS mobile core and voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) software solutions, after an exhaustive search of the leading global telecommunications infrastructure providers.

Mavenir is a leading provider of a Virtualized IMS Core suite including VoLTE, VoWiFi, and RCS solutions based on NFV-based platform. This virtualized technology allows operators to quickly and easily create and manage Telco-grade services based on a wide range of commercially available off-the-shelf hardware.

For Cellcom, an IMS core for all network access types and a common provisioning and management system help decrease operational costs and allows convergence of the network to deliver voice and rich multimedia services across any network access (LTE, Wi-Fi, and eventually 5G).

Lee Thibaudeau, Cellcom’s CTO and Vice President of Engineering said, “We look to Mavenir to help us transition our network to enable rapid service deployment for our customers. Mavenir’s deep expertise and extensive knowledge of implementing and deploying IMS and supporting services, will help us launch new product offerings on time and on budget. We look forward to partnering with Mavenir to deploy these new services for the benefit of our customers.”

“We are excited to help support Cellcom in transforming their network to a software-based IMS platform,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO of Mavenir. “This will enable advanced new services for their customers and increased revenue opportunities for Cellcom.”

Mavenir will be at CCA Mobile Carriers Show speaking on ‘Virtualized RAN: A Forcing Factor in Mobile Economics’ and ‘Innovative Small Cell Solutions’.
