EDISON, New Jersey, January 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Flash Networks, the leading provider of mobile Internet optimization and monetization solutions, announces the release of Harmony 7.5, its Mobile Internet Services Gateway. A key differentiator of this new version is the ability to accelerate and optimize encrypted data without violating user privacy. Based on operator trials, Flash Networks has successfully demonstrated the ability to self-detect congestion in real-time and increase download speeds by 50% for all types of traffic, including encrypted traffic. The system can also be deployed as a virtual network function (VNF) and can be integrated into software defined networks (SDN).
With the introduction of 4G, LTE, and LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) networks, speed has become the main service differentiator for network operators. At the same time, due to privacy concerns, more and more mobile Internet traffic is encrypted, making it hidden to many optimization solutions. Harmony 7.5 includes smart optimization, which boosts downloads and browsing speeds for all networks, including 300 mbps LTE-A networks.
More and more operators are turning to virtualized architecture with software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) that offers service agility and operational and capital savings. To address this trend, Flash Networks has developed an optimization and monetization solution that supports virtualization. Harmony 7.5 has been successfully used to optimize traffic in a live trial as part of an SDN topology, integrated into existing network functions and sharing the same hardware.
"Harmony 7.5 helps operators win the speed race to be the fastest network, saves network and radio resources by optimizing data only when needed, and optimizes 90% of protocols, including encrypted data, all on a virtualized architecture," said Liam Galin, President and CEO of Flash Networks.
Harmony 7.5, along with Layer 8, Flash Networks' monetization solution, will be demonstrated at Mobile World Congress, March 2-5 in Barcelona, Spain at Flash Networks' stand (5D60).
