Openet Enables Cohesive Policy Management
September 13, 2011 - Openet
Openet's Intelligent Video Management Solution differentiates between sources of video content, including content from over-the-top (OTT) providers, and assesses delivery optimization based on subscriber plans and network needs.
To manage the pressure video places on the network, operators have traditionally implemented video optimization solutions independent of the policy management platform that reduce traffic on individual nodes. However, these node-specific policies local to the video optimization solution are not synchronized as part of a larger policy management strategy for video, but instead, video optimization and policy management solutions are often deployed separately.
Openet’s Intelligent Video Management Solution enables cohesive policy management across the entire network, including individual nodes designed to optimize video traffic. The solution can dynamically set longer or shorter buffers for high priority video services and can immediately detect device type and capabilities, such as whether a phone can deliver high-definition content. This enables operators to leverage policy to deliver the best content relative to both the user and to the network, ensuring a more consistent quality of experience.
