Vodafone Egypt has selected Openwave Mobility’s NFV-based download acceleration and encrypted video management solution to enhance subscriber Quality of Experience (QoE) and manage rising encrypted video traffic.
Osama Siad, Vodafone Egypt’s technology director said: “As the volume of mobile data continues to grow, we needed a flexible solution that can handle all traffic types and assure our users of a greater mobile data experience. Openwave Mobility’s technology allows us to effectively manage all our streaming data, including encrypted video, resulting in a very positive impact on subscriber QoE. Openwave Mobility’s expertise, quick install, and proven ability to scale its currently deployed solutions on our network, made them the obvious choice”.
Openwave Mobility’s cloud based software platform helps to manage HTTPS, Google’s QUIC and Facebook’s 0RTT video delivery. The solution in this deployment also includes Openwave Mobility’s cloud based subscriber data management platform (SDM-CE).
John Giere, CEO and President of Openwave Mobility said: “Market research in the Middle East has shown that subscribers find video buffering as annoying as a dropped call. Given such a competitive mobile landscape, it is vital for operators to have the right technology in place to deliver an outstanding QoE. We developed our solutions for leading operators like Vodafone Egypt who pride themselves on maintaining excellent QoE for their users.”
