Media optimization for mobile networks

Openwave

The proliferation of mobile devices, along with improvements in device capabilities and network bandwidth, have caused a tremendous increase in mobile data volume. Among the various forms of mobile data, video is quickly becoming the dominant data type in carrier networks.

There are ways that service providers can approach the bandwidth shortage issue. Until now, one approach has been to add network capacity through additional equipment capex. Unfortunately, this strategy is expensive and provides only a short-term solution. Not all service providers have the financial strength to simply throw money at the problem, nor does that guarantee a sustainable solution.

This white paper discusses various media optimization technologies and best practices that can help service providers cope with the exponential growth of mobile video data without resorting to expensive capex/opex solutions, while also
providing an enhanced user experience and increased network efficiency.
