Vantrix Delivers a Breakthrough in Mobile Video Processing Using the New QuickFire Networks T-Video Platform
Solution Helps Companies Deliver Disruptive Video Performance to Wireless Carriers
MONTREAL & SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Vantrix, a provider of mobile video optimization and policy enforcement solutions, and QuickFire Networks, a pioneer of traffic processing platforms specifically designed for the exponentially increasing demands on today’s service provider network, today announced the availability of a next generation mobile video processing solution. Based on Intel® Core™ i7 processors, the QuickFire Networks’ new T-Video™ V1100 is the first purpose-built mobile video appliance delivering the dramatically improved density operators need to replace a full rack of standard servers with a single appliance, while enabling new services and delivering significantly better mobile video performance.
“The QuickFire Networks T-Video platform is a perfect complement to us to demonstrate the scalable design of our software architecture,” stated Jim Knapik, President and CEO of Vantrix. “Our Bandwidth Optimizer solution easily adapts to the radical new implementation and allows us to scale far beyond what’s currently possible on other commercial platforms.”
“Today’s platforms were designed long before anyone could have predicted the mobile data explosion,” commented Mike Coward, CEO of QuickFire Networks. “Video traffic growth demands ultra-high density platforms so that Service Providers can cost effectively deploy optimization solutions, but the existing platforms are repurposed datacenter and telecom systems designed for other applications. Our T-Video product line was designed from the ground up for mobile video optimization to offer the highest density in the industry, using all capabilities of Intel® CoreTM processors and providing a perfect foundation for Vantrix’ high performance solutions.”
“With mobile video traffic almost doubling every year, video processing density is the number one requirement for service providers,” added Steve Price, General Manager for Intel’s Communications Infrastructure Division. “Intel technology is ideally suited for high scale video optimization and transcode with integrated GPUs and high performance cores to provide the necessary balance of performance and flexibility.”
A live demonstration will be available at the 2013 NAB Show, April 6-11 in Las Vegas, NV. Operators that want early information on how the solution’s significantly more scalable, cost effective, and deployment-friendly approach contrasts with existing commercial-off-the-shelf (“COTS”) solutions, can request a meeting at Mobile World Congress 2013, February 25-28 in Barcelona, Spain by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or the Vantrix media contact below.
The T-Video platform is designed specifically for mobile video optimization. It’s 3X denser/higher-performance than the best available bladed telecommunications solution, and 15X denser than other leading server solutions. This density makes it possible to broadly deploy video optimization services for every subscriber, benefiting the entire value chain, including better video for the subscriber and better economics for the operator. The 10-20 percent improvements mobile operators typically gain with their existing server solutions is no match for the T-Video platform.
The current state-of-the-art appliance delivers 20 simultaneous high definition video streams. T-Video reaches 100+ simultaneous high definition video streams in the same form factor.
Vantrix meets the demands of massive mobile data growth through bandwidth optimization, deep network traffic intelligence, and granular policy enforcement technologies. We reduce network congestion caused by video, web content and Internet audio while enhancing revenue opportunities for mobile network operators worldwide.
Vantrix software platforms provide operators with insight, control, and optimization capabilities that balance user experience quality with cost-effective use of network resources. Our rich heritage in mobile video and image optimization deliver high performance and adaptable solutions to meet unique operator needs.
Headquartered in Montreal, Vantrix has products deployed to more than one billion subscribers, on 75+ mobile networks and five continents. To learn more, visit www.vantrix.com.
