Based on its recent analysis of the radio access network (RAN) capacity traffic shaping market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Vasona Networks, Inc. with the 2016 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Line Strategy Leadership. Vasona has set itself apart in the market with the rollout of its SmartAIR™ edge application controller and SmartVISION™ analysis suite, which offer industry-leading network traffic management and visibility. These solutions monitor and improve network performance at the cell level and deliver real-time analytics for network congestion, latency and other performance issues.
Vasona’s SmartAIR functions as a real-time traffic manager, sitting in line between the mobile network core and the RAN. It analyzes every subscriber session and identifies impending network congestion at the individual cell level, taking into account the nature of each application in use by subscribers and real-time bandwidth needs. Vasona’s solution reshapes traffic during moments of congestion to ensure a positive experience for every user in the cell, regardless of application. With the SmartAIR, the company delivers proven quality of experience (QoE) improvements without requiring expensive infrastructure upgrades.
SmartVISION is deployed at the network operations center for real-time visual and analytical understanding of each cell sector’s performance, including usage trends across all monitored cells. Empowered by the insight provided, operators enjoy complete clarity about network performance versus similar solutions on the market. As a result, Vasona’s customers take corrective measures promptly to optimize network performance.
“Traditional RAN capacity management solutions offer mobile operators just a brief overview of network performance, but not crucial in-depth knowledge,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Rohan Thomas. “Vasona Networks’ ability to deliver comprehensive network performance insights and demonstrable improvements at the individual cell level only during times of congestion makes the company a clear leader in the category.”
“Owing its commitment to offer customers cutting-edge convenience in terms of network monitoring, the company collaborates closely with its customers,” noted Thomas. “Vasona is backed by two globally respected investors, Bessemer Venture Partners and NewVenture Partners LLC. Such affiliations allow Vasona to continue solution development through extensive R&D and help it demonstrate the true potential of its proprietary solutions in the global market.”
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a comprehensive product line that caters to the breadth of the market it serves. The award recognizes the extent to which the product line meets customer base demands, the overall impact it has in terms of customer value as well as increased market share.
"We are proud of Frost & Sullivan's recognition of Vasona Networks’ technical accomplishments and expanding traction based on deployment of our solutions by tier one operators in some of the world's largest cities,” said John Reister, vice president of marketing and product for Vasona Networks. "We are dedicated to ongoing technical and industry advancement that builds on our key accomplishments to date, especially as we pursue vital emerging initiatives, such as network virtualization and mobile edge computing efforts."
Frost & Sullivan’s Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for outstanding achievement in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research.
