North Texas-Based Mavenir and Amazon Partner to Shape the Future of Telecom Networks with Cloud Technology on AWS

Mavenir and AWS's partnership aims to transform telecom operations with a new, secure, telco-grade deployment model, enhancing connectivity for businesses and consumers. The collaboration could improve 5G and RAN efficiency, lower costs, and spur industry-wide innovation and competitive pricing.

Richardson-based Mavenir has signed a five-year strategic collaboration agreement with Amazon Web Services to “revolutionize” the deployment of telecom workloads running on AWS.

Mavenir, a cloud-native network infrastructure provider building the future of networks, said the collaboration will pave the way for the companies to jointly design Mavenir’s technology to streamline the development, testing, integration, and application of cloud-native solutions. The move will harness the “high availability, scalability, and security capabilities” of AWS services to create a new telco-grade deployment model, the companies said. The new model aims to transform how operators launch 5G, IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem), Radio Access Network (RAN), and future network technologies.

“Building on our long-term partnership and individual leadership in cloud technology, Mavenir and AWS are now working together to leverage the key attributes of the public cloud to enable unprecedented adaptability of telco workloads,” Bejoy Pankajakshan, EVP, chief technology and strategy officer at Mavenir, said in a statement. “As part of this collaboration, we’re combining our strengths to support the ambition of operators to migrate into the public cloud, delivering uniquely optimized solutions that ensure fast and efficient deployment—and a dramatic reduction in total cost of ownership.”

“We believe that this partnership will revolutionize the telco industry, allowing us to deliver innovative, scalable, and secure solutions that will shape the future of cloud-native services,” he added.

Mavenir said the partnership transcends technical collaboration and co-development and will also focus on accelerating market adoption.

“While this is a potent combination of the flexibility and scalability of the AWS cloud with Mavenir’s market-leading cloud-native technology and deep telco domain expertise, as partners we will also collaborate on joint market development—with clear targets set to accelerate market adoption, bringing the value and power of cloud-based network solutions to telcos and their customers across the globe, leveraging our combined market channels and customer reach,” Aniruddho Basu, EVP of Emerging Business and Partnerships at Mavenir, said in a statement.

Digitizing telco networks

Mavenir said its cloud-native and containerized approach to software development, paired with the AWS cloud translates into a joint strategic alignment that will enable telecom operators and enterprises to explore and adapt new business models.

The company said that by simplifying network deployment, lowering total cost of ownership, and automating operations, cloud-based network solutions empower telco operators to transform their traditional business models and increase profitability, while bringing new technologies and innovative products to consumer and enterprise customers.

Last year, Mavenir closed a $100 million capital raise aimed at enabling the digitization of telco networks with cloud-native applications that include IMS, Converged Packet Core, and Open RAN.

The company said the funding came on the heels of its successful $250 million fund raise in 2022.

Mavenir says it’s “building the future of networks” with cloud-native, AI-enabled solutions that are green by design, empowering operators to realize the benefits of 5G and achieve “intelligent, automated, programmable networks.”

As a pioneer of Open RAN and “a proven industry disruptor,” Mavenir said its award-winning solutions are delivering automation and monetization across mobile networks globally, accelerating software network transformation for more than 300 communications service providers in more than 120 countries, which serve more than 50% of the world’s subscribers.
