Telefónica taps Mavenir for cloud-native IMS Core in three LatAm markets

Telefónica’s Latin American arm Telefónica Hispam (Hispanoamérica) has selected Mavenir to supply cloud-native IMS Core for fixed and mobile networks across Mexico, Colombia, and Chile.

Mavenir’s cloud-native IMS platform serves as the foundational technology for 5G networks. The transition to automated, cloud-native IMS will allow Telefónica Hispam to evolve all fixed and mobile voice services and modernise operations. The solution will be deployed on TCloud, Telefónica’s private telco cloud infrastructure.

The platform is purpose-built for fully automated cloud environments, and will allow Telefónica to operate with web-scale agility, ensuring 5G transformation is layered on existing 4G networks using a microservice-based architecture. Deploying zero-touch Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment (CI/CD), containerised environments increase productivity and leverage current network investment with a 5G-ready, cloud- native IMS core platform.

Alejandro Ghianni, Planification and Engineering Director at Telefónica Hispam said: “At Telefónica, we appreciate that core network functions must be modernized to support network evolution, and virtualized architectures will need software that supports both VoLTE and 5G Voice.”

Javier Gavilan, Mavenir’s Chief Technical Officer CALA region, added: “Only a cloud- native network, evolved into a fully web-scale platform, can meet the requirements for a successful 5G transformation. Mavenir’s cloud-native IMS Core can be deployed on any cloud eliminating legacy hardware platforms.”
