Mobile Data Offload
The Mobile Data Offloading solution, developed jointly with Mobile broadband gateway developer Stoke, provides operators with the ability to manage explosive demand for mobile data. The combined capability delivers fine-grained visibility and control of traffic, enabling operators to apply management policies to reduce costs, improve use of network resources and a greatly improved customer experience.
Operators can resolve specific traffic conditions and make optimization, offload and traffic re-direction decisions using the control point created by the Iu-PS breakout and management capabilities of Stoke’s 3GPP-standard Mobile Data Offload gateway together with Zhilabs’ insight into RAN and Core network conditions. This integrated functionality ensures that operators can put their network and optimization resources to maximum use while simultaneously optimizing the user experience.
FlowSight for MDO is able to leverage subscriber RAN location information to view network conditions from end-to-end. This allows operators to invoke extremely precise control measures to relieve pressure on network elements, including breaking out selected sessions before the core and re-directing to nearby content sources, optimization services, or to the Internet.
- Combines granular visibility with precise control, dramatically enhancing the operator’s traffic management tool kit.
- Offload and traffic redirection decisions can be made based on real-time network conditions.
- The resulting levels of control and resource optimization have been shown in large-scale trials to reduce capacity demand and associated capital and operations expense by 15% or more.
