Skyfire Analyzes Mobile Video Congestion
OSLO -- Opera Software's Skyfire unit today released Rocket Insights as part of its Rocket Optimizer platform to help operators better manage their network loads by providing a real-time analytics dashboard that analyzes mobile video congestion. Operators can now instantly view key metrics such as stall rates, video start times, bitrate distribution and mean opinion score, and use this data to improve their overall network traffic management.
Rocket Insights requires minimal hardware and is lightweight, highly scalable and fast to deploy. It can even be used in advance of Rocket Optimizer as a stand-alone module, in order for operators to clearly observe the disproportionate impact that over-the-top video currently has on their networks. It can also be deployed alongside existing mobile video optimization hardware.
Rocket Insights elegantly addresses the current lack of existing real-time video monitoring analytics in a graphical and user-customizable dashboard. It provides operators with visibility into the importance of actionable quality of experience (QoE) monitoring that can intervene as needed to improve the video experience foreach user on the network.
Operators can test and refine their optimization strategies using the dashboard, and measure how these rates improve or change on the basis of real-time adjustments that they make.
