NEC Corporation has designed a new Traffic Management Solution (TMS) capable of reducing mobile data traffic volume up to 30% without any degradation in the quality of experience for the end-users, announces the company. This reduction rate is two times higher than that of NEC’s existing TMS.
The new NEC TMS comes with SSL-encrypted Pacing technology, a technology capable of identifying the type of the content being transferred through the traffic. This enables it to implement traffic control measures based on the type of content.
Besides, the new TMS also has a Dynamic TCP Optimization technology, enabling faster throughput. This technology also pacifies a smooth end-to-end communication during the time of congestion by minimizing the impact of packet loss on mobile networks.
Another new technology of TMS enables more flexible flow control, such as optimization based on the destination URL, time of day and network status.
The integration of such refined technologies ensures fast video playback for the end user, better utilization of network bandwidth etc. “In recent years, encrypted traffic has rapidly increased, and this tremendous increase has caused more network congestion. As one of their top priorities, MNOs and MVNOs must solve this congestion problem to efficiently operate their networks. The key challenge is to optimize encrypted traffic effectively and protect privacy at the same time,” said Masaaki Nakano, General Manager, Carrier Services Division, NEC Corporation.
“What MVNOs need to tackle is the minimization of packet loss and throughput degradation during times of congestion as well as the curbing of mobile data overflow in the bandwidth capacity leased from MNOs in times of heavy traffic. NEC’s newly launched TMS meets the MVNOs’ needs to increase profitability and to facilitate the effective use of network bandwidth while maintaining a high QoE for end users,” he added.
The new NEC TMS will be displayed at Mobile World Congress 2016 at NEC’s hall, from 22 – 25 February 2016.
