Telefonica UK deploys Mavenir’s virtualized IMS solution

Telefonica UK is deploying Mavenir’s virtualized IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) solution (vIMS) for VoLTE and VoWiFi in data centers infrastructure.
The solution will support mobile services for more than 8 million customers across the UK. The NFV environment will include automation, life cycle Management and Orchestration capabilities from the Telefonica UNICA platform.

The Mavenir advanced vIMS solution will enable automation and will support existing voice digital services as well as the launch of new services.

Telefonica’s NFV strategy is aimed at offering optimized solutions to Telefonica, reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) and opening possibilities of new services.

Mavenir vIMS will allow Telefonica UK to offer new propositions for all customer segments, moving the telco services to the new era of IP convergence and virtualization.

Telefonica’s UNICA NFV initiative will leverage the benefits of cloud-native software applications and enhanced automation.

“It is an important step for our Core transformation, and we are looking forward to going through this journey with Mavenir, a partner chosen for their advanced technology and innovation in NFV,” said Jorge Ribeiro, head of Core and IT Infrastructure at Telefonica UK.
