ABI Research spotlight on Openwave Mobility's Solution for Virtualizing Video

Analyst Joe Hoffman sees Openwave Mobility's Integra platform as a highly scalable solution for networks to optimize and monetize video traffic

REDWOOD CITY, Calif- January 20, 2014 - Openwave Mobility, a software innovator enabling operators to manage and monetize mobile data, today announced that ABI Research, a leading technology market intelligence company, has highlighted Openwave Mobility as a key vendor in Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV).

"There are several vendors that can meet the various needs of the Tier 2 - 4 operator, but one that is focused on the particular needs of video optimization, monetization and keeps an eye on Virtualization, SDN / NFV and Cloud is Openwave Mobility. The Openwave Mobility Integra platform is one answer to the Tier 2 - 4 operator needs," according to Joe Hoffman, ABI's Practice Director for Software, Optimization and Monetization, in his report, Small Operators Can Step Up to SDN/NFV by Virtualizing Video. Tier 2-4 operators have a lot to gain from SDN and NFV deployments, and the report details how Openwave Mobility's Integra platform can get them started in this new and complex area.

Integra is the industry's first layer 7-enabled SDN and NFV platform, empowering mobile operators with the ability to optimize and monetize network traffic in a virtualized manner. Using principles of NFV, Integra enables operators to dynamically add new services such as optimization and deploy resources without the lengthy lead times operators normally incur.

"Operators need to address their video traffic growth, to ensure scalable and profitable operations but have limited resources," says Indranil Chatterjee, Vice President of Product Management, Marketing and Strategy at Openwave Mobility. "Integra is able to meet the needs of operators focused on video optimization, data monetization, and to exploit the benefits of NFV in terms of service elasticity, velocity and differentiation."

Integra was underscored as a core solution to securing big payoffs in network virtualization by enabling operators to immediately address and optimize both over-the-top (OTT) video traffic and web traffic, in the study. It was specifically highlighted for its ability to optimize OTT video while allowing operators to maximize future innovations in hardware design.

"Tier 2-4 operators have all the same video issues as Tier 1 operators, but with less resources to address these needs" said Hoffman. "Openwave Mobility's Integra platform is one solution for Tier 2-4 operators, as it can immediately address and optimize OTT video and web traffic."

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
