Mavenir, Secure64 Partner for NFV IMS

By Paula Bernier July 03, 2017

Acceleration company Mavenir and DNS server company Secure64 have forged a partnership through which they will provide NFV-ready, scalable IMS systems to global telecommunications service providers. The companies already are working on projects in more than 20 countries.

Mavenir delivers cloud RAN, messaging, multi-ID, visual voicemail, VoLTE, and voice over Wi-Fi solutions. Its solutions serve 3.5 billion subscribers of more than 350 communication service providers.  

"Secure64 provides a small but critical piece of our IMS solution," says BG Kumar, President of the Core Products Division at Mavenir. "As carriers migrate from SS7 to IMS, they have the ability to roll out new products with far greater speed and flexibility. Partnering with Secure64 has allowed us to bring our open and NFV-ready solution to market quickly." Secure64 offers DNS-based network security products. They help protect networks from malware.

"Our partnership with Mavenir allows us to bring our DNS expertise to voice signaling through our ENUM product," says Joe Gersch, President and CEO at Secure64.  "Our unique technology provides extremely fast call completion which increases customer satisfaction and reduces load on the network. Additionally, our Genuinely Secure authoritative server protects both end users and carriers against malicious attacks."

A few years ago, Mark Beckett, vice president of marketing and product management at Secure64, authored an article for INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine, a TMC publication, in which he described DNS servers as the phone book of the Internet. DNS servers, he explained, map names to IP addresses.

“One of the most fundamental vulnerabilities of the DNS protocols is that one cannot necessarily trust the answers that the DNS provides, making it possible for attackers to redirect users to false websites in order to conduct fraud,” he said. “To address this vulnerability in the DNS, an international consortium of security experts developed a set of security protocols called Domain Name System Security Extensions, or DNSSEC, which adds critically-needed trust to the answers that DNS provides.”

And the company’s website describes Secure64 ENUM as “a carrier-grade DNS that simplifies the management of statically assigned phone prefixes, subscriber phone numbers, and ported phone numbers...”
