Comverse Presents Fresh Approach to Congestion Management at Key Mobile Broadband Events

/ Source: GlobeNewswire

WAKEFIELD, Mass., June 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In the context of the mushrooming mobile data traffic spurred by factors such as 4G, video and advanced devices, Comverse, a global leader in BSS, mobile Internet and value-added services, tackles the issue of mobile network congestion head-on this month at two industry conferences.

Congestion management is integral to preventing degradation of the user's quality of experience; fortunately, costly network upgrades are not the only option open to communication service providers (CSPs). Taking front stage at the foremost industry forums, Comverse introduces its Congestion Control solution – a fresh, highly efficient approach combining both congestion detection and mitigation.

Harnessing advanced wire-speed bypass mechanisms and on-demand congestion control techniques, Comverse's Congestion Control delivers significant CAPEX savings. Pinpointing traffic connected with bandwidth deficiency, it applies congestion mitigation actions such as video optimization, traffic shaping & prioritization, and Wi-Fi offloading precisely where and when necessary. This ensures a consistent high-quality user experience and prevents revenue losses associated with the over-optimization that characterizes some existing industry solutions.

"Easy to implement, Comverse's end-to-end Congestion Control solution quickly extends effective network bandwidth significantly – by up to 50%," noted Amos Marom, Head of Comverse's Mobile Internet Business Unit. "Why make unnecessary CAPEX investments or perform over-optimization when efficient network utilization can deliver a consistently excellent user experience that fosters user satisfaction and loyalty?"

Reprising his acclaimed presentation earlier this month at the Mobile Network Optimisation conference in Vienna, Amir Barnea, VP Sales, Comverse Mobile Internet, is a featured speaker at Broadband Traffic Management, in Boston, June 21-22, 2011, hosted by Informa Telecoms & Media.
