Mavenir and Dell EMC OEM will pursue advanced engineering engagements in Cloud RAN, IOT and Enterprise Private LTE Solutions, including CBRS initiatives.

This expanded collaboration builds on Mavenir´s extensive joint work to date, focused on the delivery of high-scale, expansive NFV solutions on Dell EMC´s networking, compute and storage platforms and Intel ® Skylake technology.

Together, Mavenir and Dell EMC OEM have already deployed and certified the full Mavenir application stack for VoLTE/VoWifi/RCS applications, virtualized IMS core, virtualized EPC and are expanding that to include cloud RAN and IOT applications. Mavenir has also certified VMWare NFV 2.0 and have developed carrier-grade integrated solutions and best practices to ensure the rapid introduction of new applications into service provider networks.
