Flash Networks Data Solution Deployed in Norway

Network Norway has deployed a data optimization solution from Flash Networks, to provide smoother and faster browsing to boost user adoption, while reducing network load to free up network capacity to meet the growing demand for data services.
Flash Networks says that unlike traditional optimization solutions, which typically cover less than 30% of Internet traffic, its solution is capable of addressing approximately 90% of traffic, reducing data for web, peer-to-peer, and digital media applications. Such data reduction dramatically reduces network load, resulting in lower operating expenses.
As part of Flash Networks Harmony mobile Internet services gateway, the data optimization solution is located on the main traffic route, and applies a variety of optimization mechanisms on the transport, application, and content layers. Harmony serves as a central gateway for rationalizing the multi-service proxy applications currently in use, and facilitates timely implementation of new services with minimal integration efforts. Flash Networks says the gateway meets the strategic objectives of mobile and converged operators who want to increase ARPU through mobile data services, generate new revenue streams from current infrastructure, and improve operational efficiency and time to market when introducing new services.
Both businesses and consumers are demanding mobile access to bandwidth-intensive applications and services, says Tor Anders Braun, Head of VAS & Core Networks at Network Norway. In order to keep up with this growing demand while keeping our CAPEX and OPEX in check, we deployed Flash Networks data optimization solution. With Flash Networks solution, we can provide the best possible mobile Internet experience, by boosting data speeds for multimedia traffic, and increase adoption rates for mobile data services, while delaying our need to add costly capacity by improving data traffic efficiency.
