Sandvine has entered into an agreement to purchase the business of Teclo Networks, a Switzerland-based company that offers a TCP Acceleration solution to mobile operators, including satellite technologies. 

With the acquisition, Sandvine launches the new Sandvine TCP Accelerator product as part of its Traffic Optimization portfolio. Sandvine said that with the TCP Accelerator, mobile network operators can expect significant increases in TCP traffic throughput (speed) and meaningful decreases in latency (traffic delays), including for encrypted traffic. This increased performance significantly improves the quality of experience for mobile Internet subscribers, resulting in a “snappy” web browsing experience, and reduces the risk of subscriber churn.

TCP traffic accounts for 90-95% of all Internet traffic and its congestion controls were historically designed for fixed line networks and can create significant inefficiencies in today’s mobile networks.  

Don Bowman, Sandvine’s Chief Technology Office
TCP Acceleration works on encrypted traffic, unlike video optimization, content caching and certain other specialized optimization techniques. So while we have seen other companies exit the Traffic Optimization space, this is another example of how Sandvine is embracing the encryption trend to help operators continue to manage their networks in a world where most traffic is already encrypted.

Jane Walerud, CEO of Teclo
There are a number of significant near-term opportunities for TCP Acceleration and our product offers significant technical advantages. Mobile operators have represented Sandvine’s largest market for years and the company has an extensive customer base.
