HOD HASHARON, Israel, June 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- Enhances Customers' Video Experience While Increasing Network Capacity
Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leading provider of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile data networks worldwide, today announced that Three UK has deployed Ortiva Wireless' unique iVOG (internet Video Optimization Gateway) platform to help optimize Three UK network costs and provide the necessary level of quality for subscribers. By reducing the stalls, or buffering, that can be encountered by people watching video over mobile networks, Three UK's customers will receive a superior video experience.
Mobile video use continues to grow at a rapid rate, especially for mobile carriers that have to manage the bandwidth-intensive traffic. As more consumers and businesses rely on data cards, tablets, and high-end smartphones, the ability to cost-effectively deliver high-quality mobile video services is high on the list of challenges confronting mobile carriers worldwide.
According to Allot MobileTrends Reports H2/21022, video now represents over 40 percent of the total traffic on mobile networks. That number is expected to continue to rise.
The Ortiva iVOG platform allows service providers to dramatically improve the quality and efficiency of rich media content delivery by optimizing for real-time network conditions and for each mobile connection. It improves the user experience by decreasing stalls, providing the optimal quality of service through inline transrating based on actual network speeds and content types. This allows for a more efficient allotment of bandwidth, so customers can watch more video on their data plans. The ability to do this without transcoding creates a highly scalable solution.
"Three selected the Ortiva iVOG platform after a detailed RFP, lab and field trial process," said Phil Sheppard, Director of Network Strategy at Three UK. "Ortiva's scalability advantages allowed the deployment to be paid for entirely by the savings in network expansion costs, while at the same time improving the subscriber quality of experience even under challenging network conditions."
"The explosion in mobile video use requires a solution that can quickly solve the issue of broadly managing video content across entire networks, do it quickly, and at a cost carriers and infrastructure companies find affordable," said Rami Hadar, Allot's President and CEO. "Ortiva Wireless' proactive approach to providing a scalable platform is a winning solution for operators and their customers too."
