HOD HASHARON, Israel, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leading supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile broadband operators, today announced it has received a new contract from an Asian Tier one mobile operator for its Video Optimization solution and Allot Service Gateway, to be deployed across the operator's national network of 15 million subscribers. This is a first time order for Allot with this leading carrier.
The Allot VideoClass video optimization solution and Allot Service Gateway provide the performance capabilities that will allow the operator to accommodate its recent surge in network data traffic and OTT video traffic in particular."Mobile subscribers will judge the quality of an operator's network based on their video experiences. The end user does not discriminate between the content provider and the operator, and at the end of the day it is the operator they will blame for a poor quality of experience," said Andrei Elefant, VP Product Marketing and Management for Allot. "Operators are still looking for ways to optimize video and manage OTT content such as YouTube and Facebook traffic. Allot's video analytics solution can find the root causes that affect an operator's video delivery capabilities and pinpoint which traffic should be optimized and in what way. Our video optimization technology then ensures an excellent viewing experience by preventing stalls and buffering delays. With an integrated solution such as ours, operators will enjoy better network efficiency, and end users will experience the uninterrupted video delivery they desire." Allot's VideoClass is an application-aware video optimization system that is fully integrated with the Allot Service Gateway. It allows mobile operators to dramatically improve the quality and efficiency of video delivery by optimizing for real-time network conditions and for each mobile connection. This unique dual optimization capability enables the highest quality of experience for video consumers while minimizing the bandwidth required by the video stream.
