It simplifies network transformation and enables operational efficiencies with complete automation.

Paulino Correa, Network Director, Vodafone Portugal, said; “The industry defines several steps for 5G – the first one was launched back in November – but it is the second step, the 5G Stand Alone Core, that brings the more powerful technology revolution in terms of use cases. For our strategic 5G Stand Alone Core supplier, we wanted a vendor who would have innovation at its heart and equally provide us with a technically leading converged Packet Core solution. We have been working on 5G SA with Mavenir in our lab for over 1 year and are now ready to deliver a cloud-native Packet Core platform that will transform our network and prepare it for powerful applications and differentiating use cases, as the 5G solution evolves.”

Stefano Cantarelli, Chief Marketing Officer, Mavenir, said; “Mavenir has been working with Vodafone Group across various projects and we are delighted to now be part of their next-generation Converged Packet Core network under the Spring 3 Cosmos programme – we look forward to transforming Vodafone Portugal’s existing network into a dynamic, agile, fully automated for simplified operation and cloud-native based platform.”
