Vantrix, a global provider of intelligent media delivery solutions for mobile network operators, announced the availability of version 3.2 of its flagship product, Bandwidth Optimizer. Its new bump-in-the-wire deployment option provides a transparent proxy that can be placed directly in the mobile data network without the need for an upstream Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), load balancing or HTTP browsing element.
The new version of the Bandwidth Optimizer comes with enhanced on-the-fly MP4 optimization, diameter gateway support, centralized and simplified installation and management framework, expanded real-time metrics, extended reporting capabilities and enhanced smart caching.With bump-in-the-wire, Bandwidth Optimizer monitors and steers all traffic, deciding on which media traffic should be optimized and which can be bypassed for direct delivery.
“This capability is a significant step forward for Vantrix,” said Don Vendetti, senior vice president of marketing and product management. “Adding bump-in-the-wire to our already flexible network insertion choices means that we can adapt to an operator’s infrastructure constraints out-of-the-box. Bandwidth Optimizer can integrate with third-party steering nodes or it can be the steering node as a bump-in-the-wire. This new implementation option saves our customers costs and speeds the optimization solution to market by reducing the overall integration and testing time required. The bump-in-the-wire capability also highlights the scalability of our Bandwidth Optimizer product and its ability to provide extended functions, including real-time traffic analytics, traffic routing and policy enforcement on all data traffic.”
