Vasona SmartAIR Virtual Edge Services Platform (SmartAIR vESP) virtualizes all of our capabilities for emerging software-based architectures.
SmartAIR vESP exposes open APIs that give third-party application developers the power to access RAN characteristics and traffic functions, including details about real-time cell congestion conditions. Flexibility, agility and a competitive edge to create new value-added services that add revenue to the bottom line – it’s all at your fingertips.
Operators are using SmartAIR ESP to jumpstart network transformation initiatives on the path to 5G.
Identify which user flows contend for cell resources and track all handovers
Classify flows to applications and groups in each cell
Build a real-time view of the RAN and detect cell congestion
Improve quality of experience for time-sensitive traffic
Mobile Throughput Guidance reduces video start delays and stall times by guiding video rates to the best-possible sustainable rate a cell can support at any given moment. Vasona’s Smart Guided Video Rate (GVR) application suite is the first deployed MEC use case. It guides videos in congested cells to the best sustainable bitrate via continuous communication and feedback between operators and content providers. The result is an uninterrupted stream with consistent quality.
Video-Rate Shaping creates a consistent QoE and avoids sending the cell more than it can handle. Vasona’s SmartGVR Rate Shaping ensures fairness between video streams within a cell and shapes egress rates either to match bitrate to sustainable cell capacity or to set a maximum rate, based on cell location, time and congestion level.
Cell Auto Tuning measures and learns cell characteristics to deliver a smooth and reliable experience to the most mobile users. Vasona’s SmartTUNING analyzes current demand profiles and adapts cell-by-cell policies by time and location to precisely manage how any application type performs in the network.
