Mavenir today announced a new R&D and 5G Innovation centre of excellence in Ra’anana, Israel focused on 5G Network and Services solutions.
The next generation of the network infrastructure will be based on a common flexible infrastructure that supports applications with stringent quality of experience (QoE) (e.g. Virtual Reality), seamless mobility across Heterogeneous networks (HetNet), ultra-low latency (e.g., Tactile Internet), high reliability (e.g., Autonomous vehicles) and provides new insights from billions of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. 5G will provide the wireless services that are critical to the next evolution of the data economy.
“5G is fundamentally a new framework of innovation and Mavenir continues to look to the future to bring innovative and disruptive solutions to the market,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO at Mavenir. “Israel has been known as ‘Silicon Valley 2’ and for good reason. Israel invests about 4.3% of its GDP into research and development, the highest R&D investment rate in the world.”
Kohli added, “We look forward to tapping into the talent in Israel to establish a world class innovation and R&D hub for this exciting and revolutionary next generation of networks.”
Mavenir is committed to cloud-centric NFV infrastructure (NFVi) across its end-to-end 5G portfolio (NGCN, Cloud RAN, end to end Security and Orchestration), using open development techniques and programming tools to deliver the networks of the future. The Ra’anana centre, as with the recently announced Brno centre of excellence, will also be working on Mavenir’s Voice/Video and Advanced Messaging Solutions.
