ACTON, Mass., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Affirmed Networks, the leader in virtualized mobile networks, today announced that it has been selected and deployed by DIGITALK to enhance the company's mobile cloud infrastructure. DIGITALK, a trusted provider of carrier, consumer and mobile solutions to retail and wholesale voice and data communications service providers worldwide, will leverage Affirmed Networks' Mobile Content Cloud™ solution to deliver Data, Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Voice over Wifi (VoWiFi) services to their service provider customers worldwide.
DIGITALK Mobile Cloud is a cloud-based Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE)-as-a-Service-provider, with a global infrastructure featuring Points of Presence (PoPs) in the Americas, Europe and Asia, focused on helping Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) deliver compelling services to their subscribers. For the past 20 years, DIGITALK has helped large Communications Service Providers, such as KPN, BT and Vodafone, to extend the reach of their network while offering a host of functions and service offerings. DIGITALK is currently supporting a multi-million subscriber base across its global cloud platform.
Over the past year, several independent studies have proven that operators that deploy software-based mobile network solutions – such as NFV – experience significant capital and operational savings, and gain the ability to develop new, revenue-generating services more quickly and efficiently than ever before. According to ACG Research, Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) that adopt a virtualized Evolved Packet Core (EPC) solution, reduce capex by 69% and opex by 67% on average.
DIGITALK chose Affirmed Networks based on the company's expertise ensuring successful NFV deployments for operators worldwide and for the inherent flexibility of the Mobile Content Cloud solution. By selecting the established market leader, DIGITALK will be able to experience the highest levels of efficiency and profitability from their deployment.
"We are seeing incredible growth in our mobile cloud business as operators are focused on providing new services to their customers in all markets across the globe," said Mark Ashdown, DIGITALK's Chief Strategy Officer. "Working with Affirmed, we are now able to provide our customers with an advanced network that allows them to deliver new services and drive additional revenue streams more efficiently than ever before."
DIGITALK's Mobile Cloud offering is well-suited for both established MVNOs and emerging players looking to deploy innovative new services. Affirmed Networks' solution was developed with an understanding of the future requirements of 5G networks, which allows DIGITALK's customers to deploy services over today's 4G networks, while being "5G ready" to embrace the next-generation of networks as efficiently as possible.
"Network virtualization continues to open new opportunities and business models for Communications Service Providers globally. This is particularly evident for supporting MVNOs to expand their reach and introduce innovative, new services to their customers," said Hassan Ahmed, Chairman and CEO, Affirmed Networks. "We are honored that DIGITALK has selected our industry leading Mobile Content Cloud as they continue to attract and serve the top MVNOs in the world and accelerate the service capabilities of their customers."
