Mavenir opens User Experience Centre for Mobile Network Real Time Communications in Europe

RICHARDSON, Texas and ZAGREB, Croatia, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Mavenir Systems, a leading provider of software-based networking solutions, today announced its User Experience Centre in Zagreb, Croatia.

Mavenir has brought together a team of creative and skilled designers with substantial experience developing mobile services on device platforms such as Android, Windows, iOS and Blackberry, providing the insight needed to ensure the practicality, ease of use and efficiency of compelling new IP services.

"User experience is a key success factor in launching Rich Communications, Video, and VoIP services, and will become critical as mobile operators expand their services beyond smartphones to include any device connected via any IP network, such as tablets, Smart TVs and web browsers," said Pardeep Kohli, Mavenir's President and CEO. "This Centre allows Mavenir to more readily demonstrate, and quickly bring to market, new advanced offerings for VoWi-Fi, VoLTE and Rich Communication Services (RCS)." In particular, Mavenir's User Experience Centre will focus on WebRTC as a potentially disruptive technology within the device ecosystem, which will affect how operators enable new services, removing the dependency on the 'app store' or device. WebRTC allows any web browser to handle real-time multimedia communications natively, such as voice and video calling, interactive multimedia messaging and other telephony-based applications without the need for a third-party plugin or a downloadable app. It provides an instant, interoperable peer-to-peer real-time communications framework, which can be leveraged to deliver an improved user experience.

Mavenir is already showcasing WebRTC-enabled browser-based voice and video applications to customers using Mavenir's WebRTC Gateway, enabling secure access to the IMS core network and the successful service interworking with IMS-enabled devices. The focus of the showcase is to demonstrate the natural extension of the LTE subscriber's device ecosystem to the web, as well as the ease of use of the operator's IMS services.

Kohli added: "For mobile operators, WebRTC levels the playing field with OTT service providers. This revolutionary new technology allows service enablement with little or no client development effort and removes the dependency that operators have on the device ecosystem. With support for open APIs to easily interwork with web apps, as well as focus on the end user, mobile operators can match OTT service providers in terms of time-to-market and user experience." The User Experience Centre in Croatia complements the IMS network expertise of Mavenir's VoLTE/RCS Innovation Centre in Cologne, Germany, with valuable perspective on end-to-end service enablement and end-user experience.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
