Mavenir raises $13.6M for mobile operator services

Mavenir Systems, a company that helps mobile operators roll out new voice and messaging services to their subscribers, has secured $13.6 million in a fourth round of funding.

The company enables service continuity across wired and wireless networks, allowing carrier customers to get consistent service on multiple personal devices. With Mavenir technologies, a customer can use a single phone number to receive calls on both his or her mobile and landline phones. The company can also intelligently route a customer’s call through a wireless network, office PBX system or 4G, depending on a customer’s physical location.

Mavenir’s offerings, also known as convergence solutions, are quickly deployed and allow mobile operators to offer new voice and messaging services without having to build new infrastructure.

Based in Richardson, Tex., the company plans to use its latest round of funding to attract more top-tier mobile operators. Current customers include MetroPCS, a provider of no-contract wireless services, and Wisconsin-based wireless company Cellcom.

North Bridge Venture Partners, Austin Ventures, Alloy Ventures, Greenspring Associates and Cisco participated in this most recent round of funding. Mavenir, which last brought in $17.5 million in 2008, has raised $65 million to date.
