Mavenir has announced its Mobile Business Messaging Cloud in Europe completed peer-to-peer (P2P) RCS interconnection with the networks of Telefonica, Vodafone and Deutsche Telekom Germany.
This represents one of the largest RCS carrier interconnections achieved to date, with an estimated addressable market of more than 158 million RCS-upgradeable mobile subscribers in 13 countries. This includes 3 Telefonica markets, 13 Vodafone markets and Deutsche Telekom Germany, as well as other carriers.
With three MNOs currently under deployment, covering up to 40 million RCS upgradeable users, Mavenir Mobile Business Messaging Cloud is one of the largest RCS cloud services in the market with interconnection.
“Interconnecting with these partners required a significant amount of expertise and effort by all parties. Our engineering and operations teams worked very closely with their peers at Vodafone, Telefonica and Deutsche Telekom. It was a team effort, with all parties at the table willing to participate and it shows in the results,” said Guillaume Le Mener, SVP Business Mobility, Mavenir.
Mavenir’s Mobile Business Messaging Cloud is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) RCS Business Messaging (RBM) implementation—operated by Mavenir—that allows MNOs to easily deliver consumer and business RCS messaging services.
The cloud solution includes the RCS and IMS Cores, as well as the session border controllers (SBC) and firewalls required for RCS P2P messaging, and the MaaP (Messaging as a Platform) layer to deliver application-to-person (A2P) and person-to-application (P2A) business messaging to users, including chatbot experiences and advanced business messaging services.
