Mobile World Congress 2012: Radisys MPX-12000 helps LTE operators generate new revenues

By Telecom
Lead Team: Radisys Corporation, a provider of embedded wireless infrastructure
solutions, announced the launch of MPX-12000, a broadband Multimedia Resource
Function (MRF) for LTE IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network deployments.

MPX-12000, developed on Radisys 40G ATCA open platform technologies, is
designed to provide mobile and IMS network operators the capacities,
capabilities and reliability essential for monetizing wireless broadband
communications, including mobile video and voice over LTE (VoLTE).

A Radisys
press release said mobile video and data demand is predicted to increase
26-fold between 2010 and 2015.  Mobile video traffic could reach 66
percent of all mobile data traffic by 2015.

operators need to monetize this mobile video growth opportunity by offering
compelling, differentiated and personalized real-time audio and video mobile
services that will increase ARPU.

MPX-12000 is the first product to integrate Radisys’ expertise and leadership
in IP media processing technology with our high-performance ATCA open telecommunication
platforms,” said David Smith, vice president and general manager, media server
business unit, Radisys.

network with MPX-12000 support enables operators to monetize media flows,
closing the widening gap between flat revenues and increasing CAPEX
expenditures. Operators can capitalize on mobile traffic growth by leveraging
this IMS/MRF network strategy to migrate traditional, mobile audio VAS to video
VAS equivalents – videomail, interactive voice and video response (IVVR), video
ringback tones (RBT), video streaming and video advertising.

The Radisys
MPX-12000 with broadband MRF support is developed specifically to achieve
operators’ growth objectives and meet the mobile video service processing needs
in a 4G or LTE mobile network.

MPX-12000 complements existing Radisys IP media server solutions and provides
operators with significant capacity increases to meet the anticipated growth of
mobile and video services. This new Radisys MPX-12000 leverages the power and
open platform benefits of the latest Radisys 40G ATCA products, to support
carrier-class capacities and capabilities for mobile multimedia VAS and
conferencing applications, mobile broadband video, mobile high-definition (HD)
audio and scalable IP-to-IP transcoding.

Mavenir has
already integrated the Radisys CMS-9000 media server with our Mavenir mOne
Convergence Platform for one of our LTE operator deployments, yet we continue
to see growing volumes of traffic in the network, particularly mobile video
traffic,” said Terry McCabe, CTO, Mavenir Systems.
