Openwave Mobility has announced that the company is the recipient of two awards at Network Virtualization & SDN Europe. The company’s AI-based RAN Congestion Manager won the Most Innovative NFV & SDN Solution. In addition, its Stratum Cloud Data Manager was awarded for Cutting-Edge Virtualization Proof of Concept (PoC).
As the Most Innovative NFV & SDN Solution, RAN Congestion Manager was chosen because it adapts to traffic in real time, enabling operators to leverage machine learning to manage congestion in the radio access network and deliver outstanding quality of experience. Judges recognized the unique capabilities of the solution, which is fully virtualized and dynamically detects and predicts localized congestion at each network attachment point. Openwave Mobility’s solutions were chosen as the clear winners over products from some of the world’s largest network equipment providers.
Most Innovative Virtualization POC was awarded to Stratum Cloud Data Manager. This cloud native solution gives operators a 5G virtualized common data layer that securely stores and accesses data from any virtualized application. Stratum provides the agile 5G data layer that eliminates data siloes and vendor lock-in and supports the seamless 5G vision of high-value services that can be activated on demand for any user or entity.
“It’s extremely gratifying to have our solutions recognized as the best in the industry by an independent panel of experts who clearly understand the impact of our solutions for today’s operators,” said John Giere, President and CEO of Openwave Mobility. “We are committed to an aggressive strategy of continual innovation to introduce solutions that support operators as they digitally transform and deploy next-generation networks.”
