Openwave Mobility announced that ten operators have deployed its NFV-based solutions in the past 12 months.
This includes customers from North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa and the Far East, bringing an additional 380 million end-users to Openwave Mobility’s subscriber base. The NFV deployments were primarily based on GiLAN, claims the Company.
To manage the demand for mobile video and boost Quality of Experience (QoE), most of these operators deployed Openwave Mobility’s Virtualized Network Function (VNF) for real-time encrypted video traffic management.
The momentum with Tier 1 operators in particular has been significant with Orange, Vodafone, and Zain all publicly announcing deployments of Openwave Mobility’s VNF for Video Traffic Management. One tier-one Middle Eastern operator that deployed this VNF has dramatically cut video stall times by over 30 percent.
