ENet, the internet, television, and ICT solutions provider in Guyana, has announced the launch of 4G and 5G voice and billing services nationwide. This development is a result of their collaboration with Mavenir, a network software provider known for its cloud-native solutions. The partnership aims to revolutionize network capabilities and provide seamless connectivity to users in Guyana.
ENet and Mavenir Collaborate for Enhanced Network Services
With the implementation of Mavenir's Cloud-Native IMS and Digital Enablement Platform (MDE), ENet now offers unlimited talk, text, and data plans on their 4G/5G VoLTE (Voice over LTE) network. According to the official release, this marks a major shift for mobile subscribers in Guyana, who will no longer face the constraints of costly and limited data allocations.
ENet expressed enthusiasm for being the first service provider in Guyana to introduce 4G and 5G VoLTE networks, stating, "Mavenir has been the go-to partner at each and every stage of delivery, providing advanced and innovative solutions that have enabled ENet to launch new mobile services with automation."
Mavenir's Senior Regional VP, Antonio Correa, stated, "ENet and Mavenir share a common vision of enabling software-based automated networks of the future. ENet was able to build on its successes in fixed wireless and fibre optic to create and launch Guyana's first 4G and 5G network. This is a significant milestone for Guyana, and we are proud to be part of this achievement."
Mavenir's Cloud-Native Solutions
Mavenir said the newly launched 4G and 5G network services by ENet are powered by its microservice-based architecture for fully automated cloud environments.
The solutions provided include Mavenir's Cloud-Native IMS, which facilitates mobile voice services and modern operations through continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) in containerized environments. This approach enhances productivity and maximizes network investments.
Optimized User Experience: Quality of Service Control
In addition, Mavenir's 3GPP standard-compliant Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) ensures granular control over the Quality of Service for data and voice on ENet's 4G+5G network. This allows for optimized user experiences and efficient resource management.
Swift Implementation and Flexible Billing Solutions
ENet's swift implementation of new services is made possible by Mavenir's Digital Enablement (MDE) BSS Platform. Through a flexible, containerized Business Support System (BSS), ENet can introduce services seamlessly. The MDE platform comprises an App and Portal, providing subscribers with a seamless digital self-service experience.
Mavenir said the 4G+5G Converged Charging System (CCS) enables ENet to evolve billing services and launch new prepaid mobile service packages, with future integration of postpaid offerings. The Charging Gateway Function (CGF) manages Call and Event data records for regulatory compliance, analytics, and business intelligence purposes.
The collaboration between ENet and Mavenir signifies a step towards the future of networks in Guyana.
