Openwave Mobility Optimizes Encrypted Video Streaming

Mar 03, 2015


Openwave Mobility, a software company enabling operators to manage and monetize mobile video traffic, announced a new solution, Secure Traffic Manager, leveraging its NFV-enabled Integra. It optimizes encrypted mobile video and audio streaming traffic. Network operators can now use a comprehensive solution that optimizes not just the TCP/IP transport layer, but also the video and audio application layer for encrypted traffic to maximize network utilization.

Encrypted traffic is estimated to be 30% of the data flow and rising. With Secure Traffic Manager, carriers can dynamically recognize and fingerprint bandwidth-hungry objects such as High Definition video, audio, or apps to deliver optimized traffic via the Radio Access Network (RAN). The smart traffic management capabilities reduce the amount of data needed to stream large files and allow application downloads to be performed efficiently across the mobile network.
