My company is considering to accelerate our network.
We find the article talked about network acceleration and think the solutions offered looks workable.
"Fortunately there are several ways in which operators can manage capacity issues, some of which will take more time than others to implement. These include offloading data onto other networks, more restrictive pricing plans, new spectrum use, and deployment of new technologies. One method available now for rapid deployment has been successfully implemented by ActivNetworks , a company specialized in the acceleration and compression of http streams for web traffic optimization.
ActivNetwork’s BoostEdge products accelerate and secure web applications. BoostEdge is hot pluggable and can be installed non‐intrusively in less than two hours, without any modification to the operator’s network nor applications, servers or end‐user mobile devices. In most customer‐tested cases, web data traffic is immediately cut by six‐fold and response time is improvedby three. In addition, BoostEdge ensures high server availability and improves load handling.
BoostEdge is essentially an application that speeds up response times, economizes bandwidth and secures web applications. It also helps optimize 3G mobile networks for telecom operators. Its patented "Plug'n Activ" technology allows rapid implementation, without infrastructure changes, and without service interruption, unlike the commonly used proxy mode."
However, we are not sure about them. Hope to hear more opinions based on the solutions offered.
