Opera's Skyfire Adds Video Analytics Dashboard

Apr 22, 2014

Opera Software's Skyfire unit released Rocket Insights as part of its Rocket Optimizer platform to help operators better manage network loads by providing a real-time analytics dashboard that analyzes mobile video congestion. Operators can now instantly view key metrics such as stall rates, video start times, bitrate distribution and mean opinion score, and use this data to improve overall network traffic management.

Opera says Rocket Insights requires minimal hardware and is lightweight, scalable, and fast to deploy. It can even be used in advance of Rocket Optimizer as a stand-alone module, in order for operators to observe the disproportionate impact that over-the-top video currently has on their networks. It can also be deployed alongside existing mobile video optimization hardware.
