Openwave Mobility Named Fastest Growing Video Optimization Player

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and Mobile World Congress, Barcelona – March 4, 2015– Openwave Mobility, a software innovator enabling operators to manage and monetize mobile data, today announced that it has been named as the fastest growing company in the mobile video optimization market, by leading analyst firm {Core Analysis}.

{Core Analysis}, a specialist mobile video and cloud analyst firm, released this data in its latest “Video monetization and optimization” market update report. Openwave Mobility’s explosive growth in video optimization has been driven by its focus on innovating ahead of the market to provide greater throughput, stability and consistency for its customers and their subscribers.

The company recently announced that it was the first to provide comprehensive optimization for 4K Ultra-HD video on mobile networks. This offers carriers up to five times more data savings compared to previous technologies, and is powered by DynaMO, the industry’s most comprehensive mobile data optimization solution. The NFV-enabled solution combines contextually-selective and congestion-aware optimization techniques to optimize not only video content, but audio and web content as well. DynaMO is capable of optimizing High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) to achieve optimum HD video playback on mobile devices.

Openwave Mobility also recently announced that it successfully implemented the industry’s first public cloud-based mobile data optimization solution for a prominent North American service provider. The company hosted its DynaMO solution in the public cloud to optimize mobile traffic, including video traffic, in the first known commercial deployment of its kind.

Patrick Lopez, Founder and CEO of {Core Analysis} commented: “Openwave Mobility has demonstrated growth faster than the rest of the market in the second half of 2014, with market shares calculated in terms of operator deployment per vendor.”

“Over the past nine months, Openwave Mobility has added one new customer every month, and there is a reason that we have been selected so consistently by operators,” said Indranil Chatterjee, Vice President of Product Management, Marketing, and Strategy at Openwave Mobility. “We are demonstrating clear ROI for our customers in less than 12 months by increasing RAN throughput capacity by 30%, reducing video stalls by more than 50% and loading webpages 30% faster. We are also now first to market with encrypted traffic optimization targeted at streaming content such as YouTube.”
