BIGLOBE, a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) in Japan, has implemented NEC's Traffic Management Solution (TMS) to deliver higher Quality of Experience (QoE) for their mobile communication subscribers. Biglobe is owned by NEC.

NEC claims that the solution has doubled the network throughput, enabling end users to enjoy web browsing and video streaming with lower latency and greater stability.

The company said that the Dynamic Transmission Control Protocol Optimization (D-TCP) function of NEC's TMS automatically controls the volume of packets transmitted over the network in accordance with traffic conditions. This makes it possible to optimize the packet flow rate at a level that will not impair the user's QoE during times of traffic congestion, thereby mitigating packet loss and packet retransmission, which can lead to throughput degradation, added NEC.

Masaaki Nakano, Senior Vice President, BIGLOBE
Implementing NEC's TMS has allowed us to minimize packet loss and increase network throughput during times of congestion, enabling our customers to enjoy higher-speed communication services with their smartphones and tablet devices.

Atsuo Kawamura, Senior Vice President, NEC Corporation
Managing deterioration of communication quality during times of congestion is a key factor for MVNOs to improve end-user satisfaction. NEC is pleased that the implementation of its TMS has allowed BIGLOBE to dramatically improve throughput, which will be a key differentiator for their mobile services.
