Case Study

Case Study - ZTE Standardizes IP Service Delivery Solutions on Radisys’ Virtualized MRF

Mobile operators are deploying Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to bring the benefits of the cloud to their networks, such as scalability, increased efficiencies and reduced costs.  By leveraging Radisys’ common media processing platform for all of its cloud-based offerings, ZTE is helping its customers accelerate the deployment of new interactive HD audio and HD video services, while reducing upfront capital expenditures and ongoing operating expenses.

To enable our mobile operator customers’ transition to an NFV environment, ZTE is migrating its IMS solutions and VoLTE core network service offerings to a cloud architecture, driving an important requirement for virtualized media processing. Radisys’ vMRF delivers HD audio and HD video media processing and transcoding that are required by today’s increasingly multimedia-intensive applications.

ZTE is a market leader in value-added service deployment, with 20 percent worldwide market share for voicemail that includes major deployments throughout China, India, Latin America and Europe.  China Mobile will leverage ZTE’s IMS core and ring-back tones solutions, all powered by Radisys’ virtualized MRF.

ZTE is a long-time customer of Radisys, having deployed Radisys’ hardware MRF portfolio for many years to provide the critical media processing for our value-added services, such as voicemail and ring-back tones, used by more than 600 million subscribers around the world.  As we looked to transition our VAS service offerings to the cloud, we made the strategic decision to standardize across our IP service delivery solutions on Radisys’ virtualized MRF. This will allow ZTE to rapidly deploy new interactive multimedia services such as VoWiFi and WebRTC, while reducing our customers’ total cost of ownership.
