Openwave Mobility Launches 4K Ultra-HD Video Optimization for Mobile Devices

Openwave Mobility announced that it launches 4K Ultra-HD video on mobile networks. It offers carriers up to five times more data savings compared to previous technologies. Openwave Mobility's DynaMO, is now capable of optimizing High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) to achieve optimum HD video playback on mobile devices. DynaMO seamlessly manages the competing next generation video formats, H.265 and VP9, without degrading quality. HEVC has been touted as the pathway to bring 4K Ultra HD video to mobile devices. The video formats are more than twice as efficient as previous generations, but have until now proven to be challenging to optimize. As well as optimizing HEVC, DynaMO is capable of recoding older video formats into HEVC in order to provide further data savings for operators. DynaMO is the NFV-ready audio, HD and media optimization solution to help carriers manage the bandwidth constraints on their networks. DynaMO uses a combination of contextually-selective and congestion-aware optimization techniques to provide the high quality video experience for users. Taking into account each subscriber's device, it intelligently adapts video optimization to fit the original video. The solution monitors individual users' data sessions, optimizing videos only when networks are congested and to the extent where smooth playback can be achieved.

Openwave Mobility Announces General Availability of DynaMO

Openwave Mobility announced general availability of DynaMO, the incarnation of its congestion control software. This solution is the most advanced optimization solution with full HD Video and streaming Audio optimization capabilities as well as the most advanced reporting dashboard to measure traffic profile and savings. The DynaMO enhanced media optimization solution is designed to help carriers manage the bandwidth constraints created by the faster growing mobile content formats namely HD Video and Audio streaming. The new audio/video optimization solution is equipped to maximize the efficiency of data transport over wireless networks and optimizes HD video and audio in real-time. DynaMO makes the optimized delivery of media over mobile networks seamless for operators as well as providing them the option of hosting in the cloud or in the network. The solution can also be deployed in a virtualized environment with dynamic scaling that is fully aligned with the industry initiative for Network Function Virtualization (NFV). DynaMO uses a combination of contextually-selective and congestion-aware optimization techniques. It provides the higher quality of video experience by intelligently adapting video optimization to fit the original video with each user's device. DynaMO monitors individual users' data sessions, optimizing video only when networks are congested and to the extent where smooth playback can be achieved. This release is capable of re-encoding virtually any video format in real-time, providing the most comprehensive Over-The-Top (OTT) support in the industry for audio and video content. For the first time, operators can optimize audio streaming services by 30%, reducing radio-lag on all major on-demand music services such as Pandora, Grooveshark, Last.FM and Slacker, among others. The solution also includes support for micro-video services such as Vine and Instagram, creating the best user-experience possible across all mediums. The company’s DynaMO is equipped to provide complementary dynamic reporting for mobile operators. This built-in Analytics module helps operators understand mobile data traffic through an interactive dashboard. The reporting system analyzes traffic and content-specific characteristics, from formats to resolutions and can also show individual and global cost savings achieved. Enhanced features highlighted in DynaMO, available for physical and NFV deployments, include: An enhanced HD Video Optimization engine - applies an intelligent, context, device- and congestion-aware layer to optimize HD video and all major video formats without the need to transform them This includes 3GP, MP4, HLS, HSS, HDS, and proprietary MPEG-DASH-like delivery mechanisms, such as YouTube's and Dailymotion's Lumberjack. Audio Streaming Optimization - provides the industry's most comprehensive audio support available, for Pandora, Grooveshark, Last.FM or Slacker and more. Dynamic Reporting - enables operators to monitor and act on their mobile data traffic via an interactive dashboard. TCP Optimization-incorporates an innovative TCP optimization engine, based on a learning-based algorithm. An optional integrated Analytics module that provides subscriber and segment level insights. Earlier versions of congestion control have been widely deployed by mobile operators across the US, Europe and APAC.
