Vantrix All-Content Policy-Based Bandwidth Optimizer 3.0 Delivers Results for Mobile Network Operators

Vantrix, the leading pioneer of optimized mobile content delivery solutions, today announced that mobile network operators using Vantrix Bandwidth Optimizer 3.0, such as Carolina West Wireless, are already seeing positive impacts on network congestion, Quality of Experience (QoE), CAPEX/OPEX savings and revenue growth. Bandwidth Optimizer solves these challenges at three levels:

  • Intelligence – deep mobile network content traffic insight
  • Optimization – broad optimization capabilities, including on-the-fly MP4 transcoding, image compression, advanced caching and Internet radio and software/firmware download optimization
  • Control – policy and enforcement controls through multi-dimensional (who, what, where, when) context-awareness

“Vantrix’s Bandwidth Optimizer has transformed the way we manage content on our network,” said Slayton Stewart, CEO of Carolina West Wireless. “This solution enables us to achieve the main objectives we had at the outset of our evaluation: obtain a deeper understanding of our subscriber usage patterns and needs in order to create enhanced revenue opportunities, and deliver network efficiencies through optimization. We are delighted by our growing relationship with Vantrix.”

“Vantrix is pleased to continue to drive value across the Carolina West Wireless business. The rapidly increasing mobile usage demands on operator networks have created a data tsunami that is not exclusive to larger operators,” said Jim Knapik, CEO of Vantrix. “Vantrix is working closely with Carolina West Wireless to ensure optimum content delivery based on their evolving policies for managing exponential traffic growth for all services, including technologies such as Internet radio.”

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
