Tokyo, February 24, 2012 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) announced today the beginning of global sales for its "Traffic Optimizing Solution" that reduces network traffic for telecommunication carriers by optimizing the transmission volume of video data, compressing text and optimizing static images to best suit specific mobile device capabilities and wireless environments.
In recent years, a rapid increase in data traffic due to the spread of smartphones and mobile devices has become an important issue. Video transmission represents a major part of this traffic increase. Since audiences frequently stop videos in the middle of transmission, a great deal of unwatched, partially transmitted data is increasing traffic and causing network interruption. Moreover, a large amount of image data that cannot be processed by certain devices is also wasted.
"NEC's Traffic Optimizing Solution reduces network traffic by approximately 20% through customizing the delivery of data for individual devices," said Tsunehisa Enoki, Executive Specialist, NEC Corporation. "Once introducing the solution to a communication carrier's network, data is delivered at a pace that is customized to the playback speed of each mobile device and its network status."
Key features of the Traffic Optimizing Solution include:
Looking forward, NEC will continue to enhance its solutions for smartphones and mobile devices as part of enabling communications carriers to provide even more effective services.
NEC will introduce this solution at stand 8A125, Hall 8, Mobile World Congress 2012, the mobile industry's largest event, held in Barcelona, Spain, from February 27-March 1, 2012. For more information regarding NEC's activities at MWC 2012, please visit: http://www.nec.com/global/event/mwc/
