Vasona Networks, Inc., a provider of platforms for mobile network capacity, resource management and intelligence, today announces a pilot deployment with Telefónica UK. This follows trials during which the international mobile operator has achieved real-time visibility of network traffic, and active session management across individual cells when congestion occurs. The pilot covers O2’s customers in London with deployments of the Vasona SmartAIR1000 edge application controller and SmartVISION™ analysis suite.
“Working with Vasona Networks on mobile traffic management and visibility is part of Telefónica’s commitment to great customer experiences,” says Tommy Björkberg, head of network strategy and programs for Telefónica UK. “We field tested in one of the world's most densely-populated markets to confirm the Vasona platforms’ abilities to benefit mobile data performance for our customers. This pilot deployment represents the next phase of our work together."
The Vasona SmartAIR1000 leverages dynamic rate control with feedback (DRCF) technology, detecting congestion at the cell level and taking action to minimize latency and avoid packet loss. Such improvement of RAN (radio access network) performance can improve the quality of user experiences. Additionally, analytics provided by Vasona SmartVISION present both real-time and historical traffic trends across individual cells.
