PARIS, February 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
ActivNetworks, the expert in acceleration and optimization of data traffic, today announces that its BoostEdge Telecom Edition platform has been deployed at Bouygues Telecom with IBM as the system integrator.
Surfing the Internet via Bouygues Telecom's 3G network now benefits from BoostEdge patented acceleration technologies. Processed traffic is widely reduced, allowing Bouygues Telecom subscribers to access the Internet and corporate web applications with a new comfort when on the move.
ActivNetworks won Bouygues Telecom's tender for acceleration and compression of Internet connections on its 3G network. BoostEdge Telecom Edition was chosen because it clearly outperformed the other solutions being considered.
Cyrille Guetin, Bouygues Telecom's Technical Director, explains: "The success of Mobile Internet and new terminals (smartphones, tablets) requires that we look forward in order to guarantee the best service to our customers. This is why Bouygues Telecom chose ActivNetworks which offers traffic acceleration technologies that are both comprehensive and easy to deploy."
Serge Cuesta, President, ActivNetworks, says: "Accessing the Internet on the move is now widely popular and this is creating huge challenges for telecom operators. With Bouygues Telecom, ActivNetworks showcases its expertise by deploying a solution that is both effective and durable but also very simple to deploy and maintain. Investments required to cope with traffic growth can now be reduced without adding complexity to existing networks or modifying users' terminals."
BoostEdge Telecom Edition is designed to improve 3G networks performances by widely reducing processed traffic. This means Web pages are displayed more quickly and file downloads are greatly accelerated. ActivNetworks' patented "Plug'n-Boost" technology allows for rapid deployments without modification to existing infrastructures or service interruptions.
ActivNetworks is now identified as a major player in the market for traffic acceleration and optimization technologies for telecom operators.
ActivNetworks will exhibit at the Mobile World Congress to be held in Barcelona, Spain, February 14-17 2011. Visit us in Hall 2, Booth E47, Pod 19
