5G is of vital importance for enterprises across many industries. Ultra-low latency, enhanced control and flexibility, network slicing and reduced hardware and cabling needs are only a few of the benefits reaped by the manufacturing, healthcare and supply chain and logistics industries. Of course, things get even better when 5G is paired with IoT.
With private 5G networks continuing to develop, it is known that innovation needs to be made readily available to current and future customers. To do that, HCLTech, Intel and Mavenir are in a collaboration to develop and provide scalable private 5G network solutions for communication service providers and broader cross-vertical enterprises.
HCLTech delivers capabilities centered around digital, engineering and cloud to clients in various verticals while Mavenir is focused on the vision of a single, software-based automated network that runs on any cloud.
Through the collaboration, the companies work closely on a range of projects and activities across enablement, go-to-market and sales acceleration, with the goal of delivering more 5G solutions to CSPs, IoT and enterprise verticals. Doing that requires the companies to work cross-functionally and leverage each other’s unique skillsets to add new offerings and help generate greater value for enterprises.
“This collaboration with HCLTech and Mavenir, which will utilize our proven technology, provides the industry with solutions that will help enterprises achieve the business outcomes they desire,” said Caroline Chan, vice president and general manager of Intel Network Business Incubator Division.
Kalyan Kumar, chief technology officer, HCLTech, is in agreement with Chan and says that the opportunity is now there to “innovate and deliver solutions that will have a major impact on business operations and outcomes.”
The companies are expected to develop a cloud-native E2E architecture of an Intel Xeon processor-based 5G solution leveraging Mavenir RAN, Intel SmartEdge and HCLTech’s management, orchestration and automation services. The companies are also expected to create innovative use cases by investing in HCLTech’s Cloud-Native Labs to drive meaningful and impactful digital transformations to enterprises around the world.
“Mavenir is focused on delivering advanced network capabilities for enterprises, preparing them for a future powered by 5G and cloud-oriented technologies,” said Pardeep Kohli, president and CEO, Mavenir. “With HCLTech and Intel, we are industry leaders across vital technology solutions and have the experience to execute this vision.”
HCLTech is serving as the prime solution owner through the ongoing collaboration, leveraging Intel and Mavenir's technical offerings and business expertise. As the prime solution owner, it is up to HCLTech to jointly define and establish a program to manage and support activities for solution packaging, go-to-market enablement, sales campaign activities and sales and business reporting through a joint go-to-market program.
