TEL AVIV, Israel - May 28, 2019 - RADCOM Ltd (NASDAQ: RDCM), today announced it has entered into a multi-year agreement with Rakuten Mobile, Inc. to provide RADCOM’s Network Intelligence solution for Rakuten Mobile’s unique and innovative mobile network which is planned to be launched in October this year. The new mobile network will be the world’s first fully virtualized, end-to-end cloud-native mobile network that adopts 5G systems architecture from launch. Rakuten Mobile chose RADCOM Network Intelligence because of its ability to monitor the entire end-to-end network, including the world’s first fully virtualized radio access network (RAN). RADCOM Network Intelligence will be tightly integrated across Rakuten Mobile’s distributed, telco cloud to assure the highest service quality is delivered to customers for voice, video, VoLTE, data, and IoT services from the mobile edge up to the network core.
“Rakuten aims to revolutionize the way a mobile network is operated by focusing on end-to-end customer centric indicators rather than just network performance indicators,” said Tareq Amin, chief technology officer of Rakuten Mobile, Inc. “RADCOM’s unique solution enables this on a highly dynamic, fully virtualized network. Integrating RADCOM’s solution into our telco cloud will increase the end-to-end user experience we deliver to our customers and reduce operational costs.”
“We are excited to be working with such an innovative and forward-thinking operator,” said Yaron Ravakie, chief executive officer of RADCOM. “This is a major validation of RADCOM’s leadership in the NFV assurance industry and is the result of our focused ongoing investment in R&D and product innovation.”
“As the leading fully virtualized assurance and visibility solution in the telecom market today, RADCOM Network Intelligence will provide Rakuten Mobile with an automated, end-to-end solution that is entirely cloud-native and embedded into their cloud,” added Rami Amit, chief technology officer of RADCOM. “This seamless integration enables faster time to resolution and, as a result, enhances the customer experience while paving the way to a closed-loop solution for 5G and beyond.”
RADCOM Network Intelligence will be deployed as multiple Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) that are highly scalable and cloud efficient, enabling customer experience agility for Rakuten Mobile’s new, innovative mobile network.
