Allot Communications has completed its acquisition of Oversi Networks and now offers what it calls the most comprehensive value-added services portfolio in a single network platform.
Allot Communications provides service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile data networks. With the acquisition of Oversi, the company will also allow operators to implement comprehensive video strategies by integrating caching with a portfolio of video services.
Oversi is a global provider of rich-media caching and content delivery solutions for Internet video and peer-to-peer (P2P) traffic. The Oversi Networks acquisition further enhances Allot’s vision to integrate the widest range of critical value-added services in its industry-leading Allot Service Gateway, the company said.
The Allot Service Gateway enables wireless and wireline service providers worldwide to drive new revenue sources and to effectively manage the ever-increasing volume of video traffic on their networks.
Oversi's caching and acceleration solutions are designed to help both fixed and mobile service providers to relieve the heavy network congestion associated with Internet video traffic. Its technology identifies popular content and caches it at the edge of the network, therefore achieving significant bandwidth saving and minimizing long delays in video delivery, which enables the operator to better monetize the flood of video.
The end result is an improvement in the subscribers’ quality of experience (QoE) for video applications, Oversi said.
