Ramping up for Mobile World Congress later this month in Barcelona, solutions provider Sandvine unveiled the latest version of Fairshare Traffic Management, its turnkey product for mobile congestion management and analytics that was deployed in more than 50 service provider networks worldwide in 2011 alone.
Sandvine’s Fairshare Traffic Management 4.0 interoperates with third-party vendors to offer “mobility- awareness” – the ability to identify a moving subscriber’s cell location, to dynamically evaluate the congestion level of the cell and to apply traffic-management policies in real time to alleviate that congestion.
Here’s what Fairshare Traffic Management 4.0 for mobile offers:
>> Sector-based congestion management based on dynamic congestion detection capabilities, touted as being better than statically provisioned cell capacity;
>> Fair-use network policies to maintain a high-quality customer experience during times of congestion;
>> Real-time, network-location-based policies like charging, advertising and communications;
>> Support for location-based pricing for mobile data to create bundled and tiered services that match subscriber usage (dependant on the subscriber’s location); and
>> Location-aware network analytics and reporting that provides visibility of the impact of congestion-management policies and supports proactive network-capacity planning.
