Mavenir Systems Supports MetroPCS Launch of World’s First Commercially Available VoLTE Service
Richardson, TX – August 10, 2012. Mavenir Systems, a leading innovator of mobile infrastructure solutions for LTE operators, today announced that its mOne™ Convergence Platform was used to support the world’s first commercially available Voice over LTE (VoLTE) service, which was announced by MetroPCS earlier this week.
Following MetroPCS’ announcement to pursue VoLTE, Mavenir Systems worked hand in hand with the carrier to help make VoLTE a reality. A key part of the rapid rollout was Mavenir’s innovative mOne™ Convergence Platform, which minimized the cost, complexity and time to market for MetroPCS’ VoLTE services.

“VoLTE provides MetroPCS and our customers a foundation for the future and we are glad to have Mavenir as a key partner in achieving this significant milestone,” said Ed Chao, senior vice president of corporate engineering & network operations. “This initial launch allows us to achieve feature parity with our circuit-switched network thus further enabling the migration of our CDMA base to our more spectrally efficient 4G LTE network.
