T-Mobile CZ and Slovak Telekom tap Mavenir for NFV-based IMS

Mavenir has deployed its cloud-native, converged IMS solution for both T-Mobile Czech Republic (TMCZ) and Slovak Telekom (ST).

This common and harmonised solution is designed to reduce existing footprint, provide network simplification, thereby achieving significant cost savings for both operators.

As an existing Mavenir customer for VoLTE, IMS, and converged fixed and mobile TAS, T-Mobile CZ has transferred its millions of VoLTE subscribers (prepaid, postpaid, VoWiFi, fixed) to an NFV-based, software infrastructure solution, while continuing to support the same features and functions.

Slovak Telekom meanwhile is replacing a first-generation IMS implementation using legacy hardware with an open NFV-based solution. The operator is migrating its current VoLTE subscribers from legacy IMS along with its fixed subscribers.

The operators intend to leverage shared data centres in two locations across their countries, with the common implementation improving operational effectiveness and reducing complexity in the networks.

"We continue with the transformation of our leading networks for our Czech and Slovak customer base, where the convergent Mavenir IMS Voice solution serves our future technology and cost reduction strategy," said Branimir Maric, CTIO at T-Mobile CZ and Slovak Telekom.
