Radcom has won a telecom deal from Rakuten Mobile to provide Network Intelligence solution for supporting Rakuten Mobile’s mobile network launch in October.
The world’s first fully virtualized and cloud-native mobile network will be adopting 5G systems architecture from launch.
Rakuten Mobile selected Radcom Network Intelligence because of its ability to monitor the entire end-to-end network, including the world’s first fully virtualized radio access network (RAN).
Radcom Network Intelligence will be tightly integrated across Rakuten Mobile’s distributed, telco cloud to assure the highest service quality is delivered to customers for voice, video, VoLTE, data, and IoT services from the mobile edge up to the network core.
“Rakuten aims to revolutionize the way a mobile network is operated by focusing on end-to-end customer centric indicators rather than just network performance indicators,” said Tareq Amin, chief technology officer of Rakuten Mobile.
Rakuten Mobile, the fourth telecom operator in Japan, will be deploying Radcom Network Intelligence as multiple Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) that are cloud efficient, enabling customer experience agility for its mobile network, Yaron Ravakie, chief executive officer of Radcom, said.
