NEI Accelerates Transition to Sandy Bridge Microarchitecture for Mavenir Systems' mOne® Convergence Platform
by PR Newswire
CANTON, Mass., Sept. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NEI (NASDAQ: NEI), a leading provider of application platforms, deployment solutions and lifecycle support services for software technology developers and OEMs worldwide, today announced that Mavenir Systems, a leading innovator of mobile infrastructure solutions for LTE operators, chose NEI to help manage its platform transition from systems using Intel's previous generation Westmere microprocessors to the new Intel®Xeon® processor E5-2400 product family for its mOne® Convergence Platform.
The Mavenir mOne® Convergence Platform provides a very scalable, high-capacity carrier-grade software solution running on industry-standard AdvancedTCA (ATCA) hardware. The new microprocessors increase nodal capacity by approximately 30 – 60 percent, depending on the applications. Mavenir's mOne® enables mobile service providers to deliver voice, video and messaging services seamlessly across existing networks, including VoLTE, Rich Communication Suite (RCS) and Circuit Switch Fall Back (CSFB), and allows them to generate increased revenue, reduce network costs, improve subscriber satisfaction, reduce subscriber churn and improve time-to-market.
Mavenir chose the Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 processor family for the enhanced mOne® Convergence Platform largely due to its impressive performance benefits. The next generation of 64-bit, multi-core enterprise processors built on 32-nanometer technology, the Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 processor family excels at delivering a substantial amount of processing power with the added benefit of reducing overall footprint and power consumption while enhancing reliability.
NEI's hardware and advanced integration expertise enabled Mavenir to streamline the process of upgrading its hardware to the new E5-2400 processor family and to take full advantage of its enhanced new features, software changes and more. As a result, Mavenir was able to substantially reduce time to market with a performance-optimized product featuring the latest Intel microprocessor technology. In addition, Mavenir used NEI's regulatory services to accelerate NEBS and ETSI certifications and international homologation.
"NEI helped us to leverage the very best in new technology while driving down the barriers to integration, including solution design and system integration, as well as regulatory testing and international trade compliance," said Terry McCabe, CTO at Mavenir. "NEI's deep integration expertise helped in transitioning the mOne® Convergence Platform to the new E5-2400 product family in a matter of weeks."
"Mavenir is a long-standing customer of NEI's due to our very successful history of providing appliance technology, products and services tailored to the entire lifecycle of the company's applications," said Jeff Hudgins, vice president of marketing at NEI. "We believe that the new Sandy Bridge microarchitecture has tremendous potential, and we are pleased to help early adopter customers such as Mavenir gain a competitive edge by delivering continuous improvements in performance, energy efficiency, security and scalability."
