Wireless Radio Access Network Providers are facing unprecedented growth in demand for content. Wireless networks are being choked by the sheer volume of video and images that need to be transmitted both to and from the end user. In light of this, wireless operators have a critical need to optimize their operations and reduce costs, while meeting ever increasing end-user expectations for superior quality of experience.
A2Zlogix’s Solution — Savings Without Impacting Quality
A2Zlogix’s ImageIQ® Image Bandwidth Reduction (IBR) technology enables Wireless Service Providers to significantly reduce the size of images and video streams — without drastic changes to network architecture and without any loss in visual quality. Smaller files and video streams mean that Wireless Service Providers can free up substantial downlink and uplink bandwidth within their existing infrastructures — which can then be re-allocated for more revenue generation. No other industry solution addresses both download and upload Radio Access Network capacity.
IBR achieves its results by integrating with an existing service proxy, and removing redundant color data from a video or image prior to transmission. After decoding takes place on the end-user device, IBR then uses a client-side component to restore the color information that was previously removed. As a result, there is no loss in visual quality, and unlike other bandwidth reduction processes, no motion blurring, color banding artifacts, or other quality degradations are introduced into the video or image.
