Last week, I attended the Mavenir Analyst Day in Dallas, Texas. It has been nine months since Mavenir was spun-out of Mitel, and the timing was right for Mavenir to inform the analyst community what the “new” Mavenir was all about. The new Mavenir is more than the old Mavenir.  It is now the collection of four companies’ product portfolios.

  • Old Mavenir – IMS Core and Voice and Messaging Clients and Application Servers (VoLTE, VoWiFi, RCS, and MaaP), gateway functions, an diameter signaling
  • XURA – Messaging and Voicemail, Network Monetization and Advanced VAS solutions, and Network Security and Fraud Management
  • BROCADE – Virtualized Evolved Packet Core
  • RANZURE – 4G / 5G Cloud RAN

There are now over 250 Service Providers (including 25 tier-ones) across six continents in 130 countries using Mavenir solutions. On the Enterprise front, Mavenir has hundreds of Fortune 500 customers and many others utilizing its messaging solutions.

Mavenir is now focused on being a 100 percent software end-to-end cloud native solution provider providing the benefits of cost reduction, revenue generation, and revenue protection. The leaders in end-to-end solutions in this market space are currently Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia, and ZTE (in alphabetical order).

Here at Dell’Oro Group, we track the RAN, Voice Core, Packet Core, and NFV/SDN market segments that Mavenir has targeted and estimate the annual revenue in 2018 for these segments will approach $11 B (RAN only includes LTE small cells).

Anytime there is a transition in technology, for example, 4G to 5G or from a physical network to a virtual network, the “digital transformation,” opens up an opportunity for new solution providers.  Mavenir has positioned itself to leverage off its past successes and has developed the end-to-end solutions to capitalize on the next generation wireless networks.
