Edge DataComsí Dynamic Content Engine software for Ubiquisys 3G/LTE/WiFi Smart Cell to be demonstrated at Mobile World Congress
24th February 2012
New application suite harnesses Intel® Architecture to cut backhaul costs and provide mobile users with a faster and safer online experience
Swindon, UK – Edge Datacoms will demonstrate the Dynamic Content Engine for the Ubiquisys Smart Cell range at Mobile World Congress 2012. Ubiquisys Smart Cells are a combination of 3G/LTE/WiFi small cell base stations with a powerful computing platform based on Intel® Architecture. Dynamic Content Engine works by automatically using operator policies to intelligently retrieve and store content at the edge of the network ready for access by the mobile user. The nature of the content store is influenced by both cellular and WiFi online behaviour and the “edge cloud” content is available to all wireless technologies connected to the smart cell. The result is a significant reduction in backhaul traffic combined with a much faster and more engaging user experience. In a trial with a major European train operator performance gains in excess of 40% were shown in a very challenging environment.
Small cell deployments in public spaces, incorporating combinations of 3G, LTE and WiFi, are forecast to grow very rapidly because they multiply the capacity of mobile networks whilst driving down costs. They improve the user experience by providing mobile broadband closer to mobile users and typically use commodity fixed broadband for backhaul. In most small cell deployments it is the backhaul performance, not the air interface, that has the greatest impact on data performance.
Edge Datacoms is the first company to join the Ubiquisys developer programme. The features of their Dynamic Content Engine can be summarised into the following main components:
Proactive content – storing repetitive web content for fast user experience and reduction of operator network loading
Predictive content – Collecting prime web-traffic ahead of user demand for superior user performance
Compressed content – optional data compression of images files for mobile devices where low backhaul available (trains etc)
Controlled content – Global Threat Management site control using McAfee
WiFi Wakeup – Hosting the operator Edge Policy Manager controlling WiFi offload
Edge’s Dynamic Content Engine combines tried and tested technology with state of the art techniques to provide optimum user experience across a wide range of environments. The demonstration will take place at the Ubiquisys stand AV92 and at the Intrinsyc hospitality suite in HS01 in Hall 4 Level 7.
“Combining advanced Dynamic Content software with Ubiquisys smart cells based on high performance Intel® architecture will generate a host of new exciting market places for converged wireless communications,” said Andrew Hurdle, CEO of Edge Datacoms.
“Smart cells are the future, because they combine wireless technologies into a single coherent whole and because they add the best of cloud computing at the edge of the network where mobile users need it,” said Chris Gilbert, CEO Ubiquisys. “Edge Datacoms is the first to harness the power of our platform to demonstrate clear benefits for mobile operators.”
