Building a Better Mobile Network for Video with NFV Technologies
Recorded Nov 17 11:00 pm
About this Webinar
How can you improve end-to-end video quality while dealing with network congestion or RAN congestion? In this webinar MobiVita explores some of those solutions.
Radio Access Network (RAN) congestion highly affects mobile operator service quality. Traffic peaks occur at busy hours at hot-spot areas which leads to user plane congestion, especially in RAN. It is not cost effective for operators to prepare hot-spots for worst case peak due to very high investments. Mobile operators want to reduce subscriber churn due to bad QoE while maintaining cost efficiency.
MobiVita will present its vision on how to define RAN congestion, how to manage, and how to relieve it using the NFV deployment model. We will discuss the mechanism to manage user policy and quality-of-experience during RAN congestion in LTE networks, which gives operators powerful tools for introduction of new services and revenue streams.
The role of open API for interacting with base stations on the edge cloud will be discussed, and MobiVita will provide an overview of API functions for RAN awareness, which can significantly improve performance of traffic optimization systems.
