Juniper announces new video optimization solution
Mobile Video Optimization increases its Media Flow portfolio
Juniper Networks has announced the launch of its Mobile Video Optimization solution, which will expand its Media Flow portfolio.
The solution is designed to dramatically improve the economics of delivering video over mobile networks and improve the user's viewing experience.
Juniper's new Mobile Video Optimisation solution is designed to deliver intelligent caching, compression and transcoding to optimise mobile video flows.
The solution is designed to allow mobile operators to deliver premium video content to subscribers and deliver new business opportunities.
Juniper has partnered with global software innovator Openwave Systems Inc for the video optimization solution, which combines the Juniper Networks Media Flow Controller and the Service Delivery Gateway (SDG) running on its MX 3D Universal Edge Router with the Openwave Media Optimiser.
The SDG provides a suite of rich services including Carrier Grade NAT, Firewall, Deep Packet Inspection, Application Load Balancing and Traffic Direct on a single platform, designed to reduce latency, complexity and cost.
"We are very pleased to be working with Juniper to address the tremendous opportunity around mobile video optimisation," said Ken Denman, CEO of Openwave Systems. "By integrating our video technology with Juniper's industry leading Media Flow content delivery platform and MX 3D Universal Edge Router, mobile operators can maximise their network assets and deliver superior quality of experience."
Juniper's expanded Media Flow Solutions are designed help mobile operators overcome RAN congestion and leverage their current RAN investment to deliver high quality of experience as the flow of video to mobile increases.
The Mobile Video Optimisation solution combines SDG and optimization functions into a single platform, reducing costs when compared to traditional optimization solutions, according to Juniper.
"Our combined solution sets a new benchmark in video optimization for 3G and LTE networks while delivering up to 36% cost savings in network investment for data growth," said Manoj Leelanivas, executive vice president and general manager of Junos Application Software, Juniper Networks. "Operators can deliver the real-time application intelligence with subscriber policies to innovate new monetization models while delivering superior user experience."
