The move to virtualised IMS should facilitate operator’s network transition to 4G/LTE and 5G.
Telekom Romania Mobile Communications has chosen Mavenir to deploy a cloud-native IP muylti-media subsystem (vIMS) platform with voice over LTE (VoLTE) and voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) microservices.
The combination is intended to provide continuity of voice services for Telekom Romania while helping the company strengthen its 4G/LTE network and facilitate the transition to 5G.
Mavenir’s network software solutions are running on Deutsche Telekom’s pan-European cross-border PAN-NET telco cloud network with the aims of reducing OpEx and faster time-to-market.
Jovan Cetkovic, Director, Governance and Transformation at Telekom Romania said, “Through this partnership, we continue our journey to a modern, agile digital company, ready to deliver all the smart digital solutions needed by customers in their lives and businesses.
"IMS will give us greater flexibility and strengthen our competitive position while Mavenir’s VoLTE and VoWi-Fi applications will enhance our core voice offering as we continue to migrate to 4G and 5G.”
Brandon Larson, SVP, GM, Multimedia Business Unit at Mavenir said, “By deploying on Deutsche Telekom’s PAN-NET, this project is another great example of how Mavenir’s market-leading network software solutions can run on any cloud.
"We’re very proud to provide Telekom Romania with tools to help it compete successfully in the future.”
