Mavenir has launched its programmable cloud communications platform, Multi-ID, which offers unified messaging and more for carriers.
Consumers today have personas for work, home and their personal lives, often requiring them to manage several different contact numbers. Mavenir allows operators to deliver a native experience where end users can send and receive voice, video and messaging across multiple devices using a single number, including messages, call logs and voicemail synchronization, and the ability to assign multiple numbers to a single device.
Mavenir’s network function virtualization (NFV)-based software platform enables advanced feature sets and allows service providers to combine communications “building blocks” to rapidly bring services to market.
In contrast, over-the-top (OTT) applications rely on best-efforts delivery mechanisms and deliver fragmented end user experiences that exist outside of the native user interface on the device–users must first open and sign into an app to use OTT services.
“Building on our expertise in delivering carrier grade software solutions, Mavenir continues to bring innovative and disruptive solutions to an area considered to be legacy by traditional vendors,” said Pardeep Kohli, president and CEO, Mavenir. “We were first to launch VoLTE in 2012, which brought voice over 4G/LTE to the market, but with no evolution of voice and messaging features as compared to 2G/3G networks. We are now leveraging all the benefits of IP-based 4G/LTE networks with new innovation to deliver the next generation of voice and messaging applications. Multi-ID brings the experience of emails to the telecom world. Just like consumers can login with their email address & password anywhere in the world, on any device, irrespective of ISP, we are creating a similar experience for voice and messaging.”
“In the competitive world of mobile services, operators work hard to create and launch new offerings and find new sources of revenue,” added Chris DePuy, founder and technology analyst, 650 Group, “Mavenir’s Multi-ID allows service providers to create numerous new services that can be as unique to each company as their team’s imagination.”
