Mavenir acquires Argyle Data

Mavenir, focused on transforming mobile network economics for Communications Service Providers (CSPs), has announced it has acquired Argyle Data, the first big data and machine learning security platform that delivers real-time anomaly detection and predictive analytics for mobile service providers and IoT networks, the company said.

Engineered for the most challenging mobile environments, its supervised and unsupervised Machine Learning algorithms enable superior network traffic insights and comprehensive fraud detection on mobile voice and data planes.

Machine learning analytics is increasingly viewed as a key tool to improve the efficiency and profitability of mobile carrier networks1. With the introduction of 5G technology and the growth in new communication patterns, applications and devices, new vulnerabilities are being exposed.

As more and more IoT devices are connected, the threat vector will widen, placing more devices at risk of hacking, and more users at risk of having their personal data accessed, or falling victim to fraud2. The number of connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices worldwide will jump from nearly 27 billion in 2017 to 125 billion in 20303.

Rules-based and batch processing systems are insufficient. CSPs now require a modern, scalable approach to fight fraud, negative margins and arbitrage activity in real-time with supervised and unsupervised machine learning. An adaptive big data analytics approach is ideally suited to manage the volume, velocity and variety of structured and unstructured data over wireless networks.

Argyle Data technology can analyze terabytes of various data streams and protocols per second in real time with machine learning analytics that enable operators to reduce fraud and offer differentiated services because of their data insights.

Mavenir is purpose-built to redefine mobile network economics for Communication Service Providers (CSPs). Its solutions pave the way to 5G with 100% software-based, end-to-end, Cloud Native network solutions. Leveraging industry-leading firsts in VoLTE, VoWiFi, Advanced Messaging (RCS), Multi-ID, vEPC and Cloud RAN, Mavenir accelerates network transformation for more than 250+ CSP customers in over 130 countries, serving over 50% of the world´s subscribers.
