Platform9, Mavenir Join Hands For 5G Webscale Platform


Network software provider Mavenir and Platform9, the managed Kubernetes provider for private and edge clouds, have entered into an alliance to accelerate the rollout of 5G services.

As part of the partnership, Mavenir intends to leverage Platform9’s Kubernetes solution to deliver a web-scale platform that runs containerized cloud-native network functions.

Mavenir has integrated Telco PaaS (Platform as a Service) that it contributed to Opensource XGVela on top of the Platform9 Managed Kubernetes (PMK) solution to meet the requirements of OpenRAN and other telco workloads.

Platform9’s Kubernetes solution is also an option for Mavenir’s Private Networks deployments. The open-source and cloud-native capabilities of the platform provide the scale, velocity and agility sought by service providers as they roll out their next-generation 5G networks.

The combination of Platform9’s Kubernetes solution and Mavenir’s cloud-native network software allows central deployment, management and support of network functions across thousands of cell tower sites and Core infrastructure — opening up opportunities for CSP’s roll out of 5G services at lowered operational costs across the globe.
