Flash Networks, a global provider of intelligent mobile
Internet solutions, announced the results of live tests measuring the effect of
data optimization on radio access network (RAN) resources.
In a recent experiment conducted on a European operator’s
HSDPA network, Flash Networks’ Web and Media Optimization solution reduced cell
power consumption by 25 percent, throughput by 30 percent, timeslot usage by 20
percent, and code shortage by 30 percent.
In addition, Flash Networks’ optimization successfully
freed-up 40 percent of bandwidth on a fully-utilized cell, enabling the
operator to service more subscribers with the same radio resources while
providing them with better quality of experience.
Using network optimization to move less data through the
network can reduce power consumption, thereby providing a more green solution
to help operators address the data traffic boom.
In addition, more efficient bandwidth utilization can
delay additional equipment purchases, such as base stations and wireless
backhaul, and minimize the associated costs to power and cool the equipment,
adding another level of energy efficiency.
Last November the GSMA launched their Mobile Energy
Efficiency (MEE) Network Benchmarking Service to encourage operators to cut
down energy consumption.
The initiative has been well received with 20 operators
signing up that together manage 150 networks across 100 countries, accounting
for 40 percent of global mobile subscribers.
“We are encouraged by the results of this experiment
as they demonstrate the dramatic effect of optimization on radio
resources,” said Merav Bahat, vice president, marketing and Business
Development, Flash Networks.
“By implementing web and video optimization,
operators can minimize their need to invest in additional radio infrastructure
and power, while providing their subscribers with the best possible user
experience,” added Bahat.
