ZTE Choose Radisys MRF Again: This Time It's Virtualized

By Paula Bernier June 10, 2015

Radisys Corp. and ZTE Corp. have a new integration deal that touches on some of the hottest technology trends of the day and aims to make it easier, faster, and more affordable for mobile network operators to deploy interactive HD audio and video services.

The relationship entails standardizing the Radisys MediaEngine virtualized media resource function as the media processing solution for various ZTE value-added services and core network offerings. The list of those ZTE offerings includes IMS, video, VoLTE, and voice over Wi-Fi.

China Mobile will be among the first customers taking advantage of this integration. It plans to use ZTE’s IMS core and ring-back tone solutions powered by the Radisys virtualized MRF.

Radisys provides a variety of network infrastructure in appliance and software form to content and communications services providers and their partners. In other recent news on the vMRF front from Radisys, the company in March announced that AGNITY’s virtualized Communications Application Server and Multi Media Conferencing application now come preintegrated on the MediaEngine 

As for ZTE, it is a value-added service company that owns 20 percent of the worldwide voicemail market. It has major deployments in China, India, Latin America, and Europe.

“ZTE is a long-time customer of Radisys, having deployed Radisys’ hardware MRF portfolio for many years to provide the critical media processing for our value-added services, such as voicemail and ring-back tones, used by more than 600 million subscribers around the world,” said Huang Xiaobing, director of VAS product planning department at ZTE Corp. “As we looked to transition our VAS service offerings to the cloud, we made the strategic decision to standardize across our IP service delivery solutions on Radisys’ virtualized MRF. This will allow ZTE to rapidly deploy new interactive multimedia services such as VoWiFi and WebRTC, while reducing our customers’ total cost of ownership.”
