Openwave Mobility, a software innovator enabling operators to manage and monetize mobile video traffic, has unveiled a new solution, Secure Traffic Manager, leveraging its NFV-enabled Integra, that optimizes encrypted mobile video and audio streaming traffic. The Secure Traffic Manager is designed to dynamically recognize and fingerprint bandwidth-hungry objects such as High Definition video, audio or apps using a patent pending heuristics method to deliver optimized traffic via the Radio Access Network (RAN).
According to Openwave, the smart traffic management capabilities reduce the amount of data needed to stream large files and allow application downloads to be performed efficiently across the mobile network. The company claims that network operators can now achieve 50% data savings on encrypted HD video, delivering an improved user experience for congested networks without compromising subscriber privacy. Encrypted traffic is estimated to be 30% of today's data flow on mobile networks and is expected to keep rising.
