New offering allows Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) to quickly and easily introduce new services in a matter of days, instead of weeks or months

Milan, 10 May 2016 - Italtel, a leading telecommunications company in Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), managed services and All-IP communication, has had its “Full MVNO in a Box” solution recognized at MVNO World Congress 2016, collecting second place in the prestigious “Best MVNO Vendor Solution” category at the show’s awards.

The award – presented during the 15th annual meeting in Amsterdam – acknowledges the solution’s successful deployment to several European MVNOs, defining and implementing their new virtualized Mobile Packet Core Networks.

“Full MVNO in a Box” is a fully virtualized, scalable and cost-effective solution, which enables both data and Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE)/ Voice-over-Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) services by providing a comprehensive package of products and professional services to support the evolution towards a full MVNO architecture at a competitive price.

With Italtel’s approach, MVNOs benefit from an NFV-ready solution, able to expand or contract resources as needed and smoothly grow CAPEX and OPEX according to customer requirements. Having an autonomous system that provides independence from Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) guarantees MVNOs flexibility when introducing value added services, while operational challenges associated with integrating multiple vendors and their products into a single mobile ecosystem are removed.

“In a highly competitive market characterized by eroding profits and margins, evolving towards a full MVNO business model offers numerous advantages and restores the balance of its relationship with MNOs,” said Stefano Pileri, CEO at Italtel. “However, the cost of implementing the infrastructure can be prohibitive. With “Full MVNO in a Box”, companies can do it in a way which is cost-effective and flexible to their requirements.

“To have the role of Full MVNO in a Box recognized at such a prestigious event illustrates the impact it can have once deployed.”

The MVNO World Congress is the most important annual event for MVNOs where the major players in this market can meet and develop business partnerships. It’s defined as a perfect medium for all decision makers, buyers and sellers active in the MVNO market.
