We’re delighted to reveal that Altobridge Limited have chosen Replify’s Accelerator technology as a key differentiating technology for their new range of GSM base-stations. The cost of backhaul data, and ever increasing congestion on backhaul links, is a major problem for Mobile Network Operators. Replify’s WAN optimization engine, tuned for mobile data, can make a big difference in a small footprint.

Altobridge acquisition of key Mobile Data Optimisation technology bridges Mobile Broadband Divide

Altobridge Limited, leaders in technology that cuts the cost of delivering mobile voice and mobile broadband connectivity, has purchased the exclusive, worldwide,  mobile backhaul rights to an intellectual property suite, comprising proprietary data optimisation capabilities, from leading industry player, Replify.

This functionality has been embedded into the Altobridge patent-pending  data optimisation platform, Data-at-the-Edge™,  and includes Byte Level Caching, Predictive Cache Loading, Data Stream  de-duplication, Data Compression and Protocol Optimization, along with standard data optimization techniques.

Altobridge Data-at-the-Edge™ enables data passing between an operator’s  core network and its radio access network (RAN) to be identified,  managed and optimized at the most granular level, with intelligence to  apply the best possible optimization to differing forms of data, e.g. video and email.

What the solution gives

The solution delivers mobile data backhaul reductions of over 50% and  therefore has profound impact on the costs of delivering mobile  broadband via backhaul-constrained cellular base stations. It can be  applied to base stations serving remote communities, remote enterprises and macro urban areas in emerging markets and developing nations.

“Altobridge has spent a decade driving down the cost of remote  communications access. Over the last three years, we have concentrated  on mobile broadband optimization and this turnkey solution enables the  world’s mobile network operators to truly bridge the mobile broadband  divide,” said Mike Fitzgerald, Chief Executive, Altobridge.

“Remote communities, remote enterprises or indeed any base station  location where a network operator needs to cut backhaul costs, can now  benefit from a level of backhaul savings never anticipated within the  industry. While cost reduction was the key driver, we have also paid  very close attention to achieving the highest quality of service levels  and end-user experience,” he added.

Commenting on the agreement, Mr. Brian Baird, Replify CEO, said,  “Replify are delighted to be collaborating with a company of Altobridge’s calibre, and together bringing WAN optimization to a new  market. Replify Accelerator was designed from the start to be a high-performance, low-footprint, portable solution and we’re seeing the  results of that investment in a ground-breaking new product. We’re  particularly delighted to see our unique peer-to-peer cache sharing  capability, CLAN, adding so much value in this environment.”

The fully integrated solution can be delivered as a turnkey radio access  network (RAN) option or as a standalone optimisation system, direct to mobile network operators. It can also be licensed via wireless network  vendors.
