According to new data from Juniper Research the number of connected devices should rise up to 38.5 billion in 2020 including smartphones, connected cars and other IoT devices. The number of cars connected to the Internet worldwide alone will grow to 23 million in 2020 according to IHS Automotive. All of these devices will increase the demand for radio connectivity and signaling traffic potentially forcing operator’s to invest in network infrastructure to avoid service degradation.
Utilizing patented technology to maximize radio spectral efficiency, Flash Networks’ xtraAir solution enables operators to serve 35% more subscribers with the same level of service using the same infrastructure.
xtraAir, running on the Harmony Mobile Internet Gateway, streamlines TCP transmissions to increase radio access throughput up to 15%. Where there is a high level of congestion detected at the cell level, adaptive bit rate management is applied, reducing the physical blocks consumed by the radio network up to 20%. xtraAir then optimizes radio spectrum further by reducing the number of RRC (radio resource control) state changes by up to 15%.
In addition to supporting more connected users xtraAir provides an improved user experience with browsing and download speeds increased by up to 50%.
xtraAir Signaling and Radio Connection Optimization reduces the number of RRC (radio resource control) state changes by up to 15%, enabling up to 35% more users to be served using the same resources.
As a result radio spectral efficiency is improved enabling operators to delay investment in additional infrastructure to meet the demand for more radio connections.
When congestion is detected video stalling is minimized, and data volumes are reduced by up to 50%
The solution also includes an advanced reporting system, which enables improved traffic management, enhanced capacity planning, and better future network design.
