Vasona Networks, Wednesday unveiled SmartTUNING as an add-on feature for its SmartAIR mobile traffic management platform and the virtualized SmartAIR Edge Services Platform (ESP) architecture. The new feature is designed for mobile network operators to set cell-by-cell policies that precisely manage how any application type performs in the network.
SmartTUNING is designed to create policy templates that are automatically enacted within specific cell groups and times to deliver the best end-user experiences, an increasing priority for operators.
SmartTUNING supports all popular application categories, as well as encrypted and adaptive bitrate video streams. It can be used to customize policies that minimize latency for time-sensitive traffic and balance performance across sessions for optimized customer experiences.
Vasona Networks said that the solutions are deployed at the aggregation point near the edge of the mobile network, where they are uniquely positioned to monitor and act on traffic congestion for improved mobile experiences and network management.
May this year, Telefonica UK started full commercial deployment with Vasona Networks to improve mobile data performance for customers. The deal involves the deployment of the Vasona SmartAIR 1000 edge application controller and SmartVision analysis suite to cover O2 customers on 3G and 4G networks in greater London.
