Mavenir Systems (MVNR) is adding an IP Multimedia Subsystem-Private Branch Exchange (IMS-PBX) solution for telecommunications service providers to its virtualized portfolio.

The Richardson, Texas-based networking solutions provider this week announced an IMS-PBX offering that “integrates voice, video, presence/IM, messaging and voice and video conferencing across multiple devices for a seamless unified communications experience,” according to Mavenir.

“We believe that mobile operators have a distinct advantage to address the needs of the micro/small and medium-sized business (SMB) market and fixed voice-over-IP (VoIP) by leveraging bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and enterprise mobility trends, and have therefore enhanced our IMS-based converged services,” Mavenir CEO Pardeep Kohli said in a prepared statement.

Mavenir noted the new IMS-PBX solution is designed to allow telecom service providers to leverage their IMS networks to better support the SMB market.

The IMS-PBX solution enables business lines to work across multiple devices “in a simple, intuitive and native manner,” Mavenir said, which could make it a viable option for telecom service providers to offer to SMBs.

How does Mavenir’s IMS-PBX solution work?

Mavenir’s IMS-PBX solution leverages Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), which separates network functions from proprietary hardware appliances and enables these functions to run in software, to deploy new services on a telecom service provider’s cloud infrastructure.

This solution also allows SMB customers to connect with and manage their smartphones, fixed lines and web-based devices, Mavenir said, to help businesses become more efficient.

“IMS allows operators to develop exciting and differentiated services for small to medium-sized businesses that are feature-rich and cost-effective,” Kohli added. “Mavenir’s unique, virtualized end-to-end portfolio, that includes voice, video, messaging and mobile core products, allows operators to quickly enhance and monetize their networks through enhanced/new services such as this.“

Mavenir said it expects the IMS-PBX solution to be available in the second quarter of next year.
