Oyster Bay, New York - 18 Feb 2014
As smartphones and tablets achieve greater market penetration, the data usage they bring shows no sign of slowing as subscribers expect good service whenever and wherever they want. With this growing demand, mobile broadband operators need traffic optimization solutions for their networks now as they already struggle with network congestion, and it will only get worse.
ABI Research forecasts that Web and Video Optimization and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) investment will increase to over US$5Billion by 2019. “The optimization solutions market continues to challenge those vendors, and continued consolidation is likely to achieve a healthy and sustainable ecosystem,” comments research analyst, Sabir Rafiq. “Operators should be concerned with the amount of data consumed by their subscribers, and how this affects the overall Quality of Experience (QoE).”
With this in mind, solutions are available for the operators and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to enhance their network and services. Video and Web optimization solutions from vendors such as ByteMobile, Openwave Mobility and Vantrix are available to improve user experience and network performance. Deep Packet Inspection and monitoring vendors, Sandvine, Astellia, and others, deliver the data packet intelligence and helps operators ensure QoS/QoE at peak times. Operators can also find help with Content Delivery Networks (CDN) as leading infrastructure vendors, including Ericsson, Nokia Solutions & Networks, Cisco, and Huawei offer differentiated solutions. A focus on content delivery allows operators to optimize content to control the delivery and enhance QoS/QoE.
The solutions that have been mentioned are a few of many available from an alliance of vendors who are offering similar solutions that will enable Operators and ISPs to continually provide services that meet their subscribers’ wishes.
These findings are from ABI Research’s “Optimization and the Gi-LAN” report and are part of the Next Generation Optimization, DPI & Policy Research Service.
