White box platform provides full network functionality and user plane traffic offload at cell site edge

Mavenir, focused on transforming mobile network economics for Communications Service Providers, has announced its virtualized Media Breakout Controller (vMBC), a single white box routing platform that enables carriers to host virtual Routing, Firewall, and User plane data offload, the company said.

Mavenir´s innovative solution offers the ability to host virtual Routing, Firewall, and User plane data offload in a single white box routing platform, deployable anywhere at the network edge including cell sites, local data centers and at enterprises. The vMBC enables direct replacement of existing ´Cell Site Router´ with the same physical dimensions, ensuring integrity of the existing network and seamless integration into next generation MANO operational systems.

The vMBC is a subset of Mavenir´s Access Product portfolio extending virtualization to the edge of the network and provides strategic differentiation by enabling local break out of user traffic. The solution can be combined with additional virtual functions that provide video optimization, caching, and virtualized Base Band Units (vBBU) for Cloud RAN. This solution opens the door to using previously excluded fronthaul solutions and to processing of the radio interface on COTS processors, all having a significant impact on the TCO.
