Today, NFV, MEC, ONAP, machine learning and other evolutionary technologies promise countless benefits. And successfully consolidating these technologies as part of large-scale transformation initiatives is a crucial step toward achieving the zero-touch automation, programmability and agility needed to be successful on the road to 5G.
Transform infrastructure to meet industry needs. Markets that span agriculture to automotive, utilities to warehouses, and beyond need help bringing imaginative new use cases to life. Mobile operators are uniquely positioned to provide high-value services to these verticals, and Vasona helps make this possible.
From gaming and tourism to training and remote management, augmented reality applications have potential to transform industries. The speed they require will place heavy demands on networks. Vasona’s edge-based approach to AR includes reduced network latency for quick responses, ensuring cell utilization is tuned for immersive experiences while avoiding overload.
LTE and 5G have opened the door to fixed wireless trials and deployments that bring broadband to harder-to-reach areas and allow operators to offer more revenue-generating services. But fixed wireless means supporting bigger screens and new applications, introducing new network demands. Vasona analyzes individual cell traffic in real time, managing traffic to ensure bandwidth needs are met efficiently for consistently great experiences.
Emerging use cases like sharing video feeds between connected cars, augmented reality and next-generation security demand constant and consistent high bandwidth and low latency. With MEC, Vasona makes IoT a reality today by processing data and video streams at the edge, breaking out IoT traffic so it won’t clog networks and bridging traffic within the RAN.
Industrial IoT (IIoT) has strict performance demands for machine-to-machine communications and video-based applications. To guarantee low latency and high predictability, data must move from the mobile edge to cloud applications securely, at scale and with very low latency. With local data breakouts and IoT traffic redirection via a secure and virtual gateway, Vasona’s MEC solution delivers mission-critical communications from the edge.
Video is king, and mobile networks are feeling the pressure. Vasona’s MEC-based approach to improving video delivery resolves cellular contention in milliseconds, shapes traffic for consistent performance and establishes communication between content streaming solutions providers and operators, sharing critical information about cell conditions and the best sustainable rate for delivering video. Vasona is helping operators and content providers reduce stalls during busy hours by more than 25%.
