Warning: contains obligatory “data tsunami” quote
Skyfire, a company backed by Verizon Ventures that has joined the throng seeking to exploit the apparent need for video and other content optimisation, has added device-aware image and audio optimisation to the functionality of its Skyfire Rocket 2.0 product.
Skyfire’s press release claimed that a typical tier one wireless network could bring savings of over $100 million in deferred capital expenditure and operating costs in the first year of deployment alone, with a payback ROI in just months, by deploying the optimisation platform.
“Rocket 2.0 is the world’s most scalable video optimisation solution for mobile operators struggling to deal with the explosion of mobile video and multimedia,” said Skyfire CEO Jeffrey Glueck. “With the addition of image and audio optimisation to the platform, Skyfire continues to offer intelligent and scalable network solutions to help carriers brace for the rapidly approaching mobile data tsunami.”
