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.

With a customer base exceeding 40 million subscribers, Vodafone Egypt is one of the leading mobile operators in the Middle East. 

Mobile data across the Middle East has been growing at a phenomenal rate and much of this is down to mobile video streaming. As mobile networks carry increased traffic loads, subscribers can suffer poor Quality of Experience (QoE) including long wait times and video buffering.

Openwave Mobility claims that its cloud based software platform is the only solution in the industry 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).

Osama Siad, Technology Director, Vodafone Egypt
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.

John Giere, CEO and President, Openwave Mobility 
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.
