Flash Networks, the leading provider of mobile Internet optimization and monetization solutions, has released an enhanced version of its Mobile Internet Services Gateway - Harmony 7.5 - which can accelerate and optimize encrypted data without violating user privacy. The system can also be deployed as a virtual network function (VNF) and can be integrated into software defined networks (SDN).
Flash Networks has conducted a number of prove of concept trials with operators and said that it has successfully demonstrated the ability to self-detect congestion in real-time and increase download speeds by 50% for all types of traffic, including encrypted traffic. Flash Networks noted that Harmony 7.5 includes smart optimization, which boosts downloads and browsing speeds for all networks, including 300 mbps LTE-A networks. In addition, Harmony 7.5 has been successfully used to optimize traffic in a live trial as part of an SDN topology, integrated into existing network functions and sharing the same hardware, added Flash Networks.
