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.
