Sandvine's integration with RADCOM offers real-time mobility awareness to 
manage mobile traffic accurately 
WATERLOO, ON, Sept. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Sandvine, (TSX:SVC) a leading provider of 
intelligent broadband network solutions today announced it has partnered with 
RADCOM (NASDAQ: RDCM), a leading Service Assurance and Customer Experience 
Management provider, to deliver the only network policy control products with 
true mobility awareness. Sandvine's Fairshare Traffic Management product, 
integrated with RADCOM's QiSolve solution, offers a dynamic control system 
that utilizes real-time subscriber location indicators to precisely maximize 
network utilization and quality of experience. Sandvine's empirical data 
demonstrates that traffic management products without real-time location 
awareness may "lose" up to 20 percent of users in an hour, and mismanage 
traffic as a result. 
Sandvine's Fairshare Traffic Management product recently measured, using 
RADCOM's QiSolve solution, the movement of over 20,000 mobile data subscribers 
in a major North American city to understand and predict sector-based 
congestion. Over the course of the hour, roughly 20 percent of users were 
still engaged in the same data session but had moved to a second cell sector. 
No two sectors have an identical congestion profile at a moment in time. 
"Real-time mobility awareness is critical when operators are applying policy 
to manage congestion. A subscriber may connect to the network in a congested 
sector, but soon move to an uncongested one. Without sector awareness, the 
traffic management policy will be applied to many of the wrong users and not 
applied to those who need it," said Don Bowman, CTO, Sandvine. 
"We see a rising need for precise real-time subscriber monitoring to improve 
customer experience", said Eyal Harari, RADCOM's Vice President Products and 
Marketing. "This joint offering, which integrates RADCOM's QiSolve 
Self-Optimizing Network solution with Sandvine's product, is an innovative 
example of leveraging our technology to build an automated optimization 
Competing traffic management products identify the initial location of 
subscribers' connections but may "lose" 20% of the users, thereby misapplying 
policy due to erroneous location information. Coupled with location-awareness, 
Sandvine's Fairshare Traffic Management product is congestion-aware so 
policies are applied when a link is approaching full capacity. Other products 
assume a standard static capacity per link, which can easily be wrong, and 
start managing traffic whether congestion is actually present or not.
