Saguna and Vimmi Partner to Create Video Delivery Network Solution based on Multi-access Edge Computing
Joint MEC solution accelerating video delivery will be showcased at #MWC17
Saguna, the Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) pioneer making mobile broadband faster, simpler and more economical, and Vimmi, the mobile video delivery innovator announced today a partnership to bring to market a Content Delivery solution for mobile operators based on the Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) standard. The joint solution features Vimmi Mobile Delivery Network (MDN) and Saguna Open-RAN MEC platform.
Mobile networks are becoming video networks. With video playing the leading role in terms of traffic and subscriber volumes, Mobile Operators need a scalable solution to deliver high-quality, immersive video experiences. By deploying video services at the radio edge, in close proximity to mobile users, MEC enables the deployment of a powerful video delivery infrastructure for mobile networks.
The joint solution from Vimmi and Saguna address this market opportunity. The Saguna Open-RAN MEC platform that creates an open ecosystem for 3rd party applications inside mobile Radio Access Network (RAN). The ETSI MEC standard-based solution enables mobile operators to quickly and effectively deploy new revenue-generating services for Internet-of-things (IoT), cyber security, virtual probes, content delivery and augmented reality applications.
Integrated with the Saguna Open-RAN MEC platform, Vimmi’s MDN solution uses grid computing and machine learning technologies that enables delivery of premium video quality at a dramatically lower operational cost. The solution reduces 70%-90% of mobile backhaul traffic while improving QoE. It reduces Round Trip Time for Video and IoT Applications achieving 5G performance targets in 4G networks.
