Richardson, TX – February 10, 2014 – Mavenir Systems (NYSE: MVNR), today announced its Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (EPC), specifically designed to optimize the deployment of data and voice services for mobile operators transforming their networks to 4G LTE. Mavenir’s EPC solution provides a full suite of standards-defined wireless functions (SGW, PGW and MME) on a virtualized software platform that provides mobile operators the flexibility and cost efficiencies needed to cope with burgeoning growth in mobile data traffic.

Mavenir’s EPC is a software-based, carrier grade solution that can be deployed on cloud-based infrastructures using Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to rapidly scale capacity and adapt to new deployment models. Mavenir’s EPC is based on a unique distributed architecture that splits control and bearer planes which optimizes packet processing and introduces capacity gains and cost efficiencies, as compared to conventional EPC solutions.

“With this latest innovation, Mavenir is redefining the 4G LTE mobile core network,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and Chief Executive Officer, Mavenir Systems. “Our revolutionary approach optimizes the overall LTE architecture with the integration of EPC and IMS on cloud-based infrastructure and makes the mobile core network access independent.”

Typical LTE architectures today are based on monolithic, purpose-built platforms that are deployed in centralized data centers, and have dedicated infrastructure for separate access networks, such as LTE or Wi-Fi. Mavenir’s approach simplifies the mobile core network by optionally integrating Mavenir’s recently announced Session Border Controller (SBC) with the EPC thus providing flexible and unified access to 4G LTE services.  Customer trials will start in 2Q14.

Mavenir™ will be at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona from February 24th – 27th, at Booth 6G40. To schedule a meeting, contact marketing@mavenir.com.
