Juniper Networks Partners with Openwave to Redefine Mobile Video Delivery and Revolutionize User Viewing Experience
BARCELONA --(Business Wire)--
Systems (Nasdaq: OPWV), a global software innovator
delivering context-aware mediation and messaging solutions, today
announced that Juniper
Networks (NYSE: JNPR) has selected the Company as a strategic
partner to integrate its
Optimizer into Juniper's Media Flow solution for mobile video
optimization. The combined solution is expected to dramatically improve
the economics of delivering video over mobile networks while
revolutionizing the user viewing experience.
According to Yankee Group (News - Alert), video is projected to exceed 65 percent of
all mobile data traffic by 2013, creating a capacity crunch on mobile
networks and negatively impacting subscribers' viewing experience,
resulting in downward pressure on both revenues and profitability of
mobile service providers. The Media Flow video optimization solution
provides a scalable and transparent mechanism that maximizes the
subscriber's Quality of Experience (QoE) while at the same time
enhancing profitability by deferring RAN CAPEX and OPEX. The solution
offers price-performance improvement over traditional optimization
solutions by leveraging the Juniper Service Delivery Gateway (News - Alert) (SDG). The
context-aware capabilities of the solution help adapt video traffic
according to network conditions such as congestion, device capabilities
and user preferences.
"As mobile networks move towards an all-IP 4G network architecture, they
need to switch from basic service management to service orchestration,"
said John Giere (News - Alert), senior vice president, products and marketing,
Openwave. "While many network and middleware providers claim they have
integration into the service provider infrastructure, we believe that
the joint Openwave (News - Alert) and Juniper solution will be the first solution in
the market that can actually enable unprecedented scale and flexibility
to enable service providers to effectively manage their network
resources whle providing a superior experience for subscribers."
"The combined Juniper/Openwave solution will set a new benchmark in
video optimization for 3G and LTE (News - Alert) networks," said Mike Iandolo, vice
president and general manager for Mobile Business Unit, Juniper
Networks. "Operators will now be able to create innovative new business
models by combining the real-time application intelligence and
subscriber policies to support growing video traffic."
Openwave Media Optimizer
Media Optimizer is a context-aware video mediation platform that
enables service providers to proactively manage mobile video delivery
and user experience under congested network conditions. Its
patent-pending technology can proactively detect congestion and
automatically trigger optimization when the network reaches
predetermined thresholds, localizing optimization benefits to where and
when it is needed. For subscribers, this means better quality video,
smooth download and playback on smartphones, feature phones, netbooks
Junos® Open SDK
The Junos Open SDK enables the rapid porting of the Openwave video
steering technology to the Service Delivery Gateway. The technology is
used to steer traffic toward the Openwave
Media Optimizer as required by the application.
Juniper Service Delivery Gateway
The Service Delivery Gateway is based on the MX 3D Universal Edge Router
and can be used to consolidate a variety of functions found on mobile
networks. One of those functions enables the steering of video traffic
toward the Openwave
Media Optimizer. Other SDG functions include Carrier Grade NAT,
Firewall, MPLS VPN, and much more.
