Israel’s Allot Communications, a provider of intelligent broadband solutions, announced that it received orders from three new mobile operator customers in the fourth quarter of 2014 for Allot VideoClass.The company says that this is an application-aware and network-aware video optimization system that fully integrates with Allot Service Gateway to dramatically improve the quality and efficiency of video delivery.
One of EMEA’s leading Tier-1 mobile service providers is implementing the Allot VideoClass system to prevent video buffering delays, stalls and latency, and expedite web browsing to enhance the overall customer quality of experience (QoE). This implementation followed a competitive win against pure-play optimization vendors. The video QoE management solution, the company states, also provides the operator with the network intelligence to achieve granular policy control to match the optimization policy to a customer profile and data plan.
A second order was received from a major multinational mobile operator based in LATAM that selected the Allot VideoClass system to eliminate network congestion and enhance video delivery. This order followed a competitive and extended trial process. The operator will be better able to identify and allocate bandwidth to each video application to ensure a high QoE while, at the same time, lowering operational expenses.
Allot received an additional Allot VideoClass system order from a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) in Europe. This operator also utilizes Allot’s web optimization capabilities to accelerate web browsing responsiveness and further reduce delivery costs. The solution, Allot says, enables this operator to realize significant savings by dramatically reducing optimizable video bandwidth by up to 40% and overall bandwidth savings of up to 20%, while maintaining a high customer QoE.
“As multimedia consumption on smartphones, tablets and connected devices becomes more prevalent, mobile operators require powerful QoE management solutions to better monetize dynamic video and web bandwidth demands and to gain control of their networks, ” said Yaniv Sulkes, AVP Marketing at Allot Communications. “Allot’s application and network-aware VideoClass system helps to lower operators’ operational expenses and generate new revenue opportunities through tailored charging models, all while enhancing the user experience and increasing overall customer loyalty. These three new customer wins demonstrate our continued market momentum with major operators seeking optimization solutions for their video delivery challenges.”
