Bytemobile Turbocharges Mobile Handset Browsing
Mountain View, California, and Cannes, France (ots/PRNewswire) - Bytemobile, the global leader in optimizing internet protocols for large-scale wireless networks, announced today the release of its new Optimization Services Node (OSN) Monaco Edition software, which enables operators to accelerate data delivery over wireless handsets. With the Monaco solution, wireless carriers can extend acceleration benefits beyond portable computers to smartphones and data-ready mid-tier feature phones.
The OSN Monaco Edition is based on Bytemobile's proven Macara(TM) Dynamic Optimization technology, which mitigates the inherent internet protocol inefficiencies that degrade performance of data services over wireless networks. Macara technology accelerates wireless data to laptops and PDAs, using a multitiered approach of classification, data reduction, and protocol acceleration. The new Monaco Edition speeds portal and internet browsing, picture downloads, and email over handsets by up to five times, resulting in a turbocharged user experience the likes of which has been unattainable until now. Additionally, the Monaco Edition saves network capacity by reducing per-transaction data volumes.
Approximately 50 operators -- including Vodafone, DoCoMo, Sprint and China Mobile -- have implemented Bytemobile's solutions, leading to a marked increase in data subscribers and usage. At the same time, carriers enjoy a 50 to 75 percent reduction in network data load.
"Our customers came to us asking for a way to extend to handsets the experience we've enabled for their laptop users," said Steve Livingston, Bytemobile executive VP of sales and marketing. "The Monaco Edition is our answer: a win-win solution that benefits consumers with faster and more robust access and gives operators the means to not only accelerate new services that increase subscription rates and ARPU, but also to defer capex."
Operating in either clientless or client-server mode on both feature phones and smartphones, the Monaco Edition accelerates browsing of phone-based portal content (WML, vHTML, cHTML) over WAP 2.0 by up to three times and HTML content by up to five times. The Monaco solution is well positioned to bridge the gap between rich content designed for a broadband world and the constraints of wireless networks and handset technology.
"User experience is crucial for technology adoption," said Rob Bamforth, noted wireless analyst. "Fixed-line broadband has whetted our appetites for instant access to data, but the mobile experience has been patchy and frustrating. The cautious strength of internet protocols over the wire becomes irritatingly cumbersome over a wireless connection. Bytemobile's technology to tackle this challenge appears with excellent timing.
"In addition to boosting individual speed, optimization helps operators preserve their most precious asset: capacity," continued Bamforth. "As users adopt handset browsing en masse and start consuming bandwidth, wireless networks are going to start feeling the strain. There is no dark fibre in the sky."
Bytemobile's existing customers can deploy the Monaco Edition via a simple software upload without changing any other network topology. The Monaco Edition is currently being trialed. The solution is expected to be deployed throughout the course of the year.
Bytemobile's mission is Making every bit count(TM). For operators, enterprises, and service providers, this means enabling deployment of true, high-value solutions that provide rapid payback, impressive ROI, and increased customer satisfaction. For end users, this means ensuring fast, reliable access to the applications they already own, over the networks they already use.
Bytemobile market-leading solutions are deployed by more than 30 mobile network operators around the world. Customers include BT Retail, China Mobile, Cingular, DoCoMo, Nextel Communications, Orange, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular and Vodafone. The company is headquartered in Mountain View, California and has sales and support offices in East Sussex, England, Tokyo, Japan, and Beijing, China and a technology development center in Patras, Greece.
