Nokia Siemens Networks Liquid Broadband Brings Video Optimization Solution
With mobile video traffic expected to more than double every year until 2015, operators need a new and effective way to satisfy growing demand for network and service quality. Nokia Siemens Networks is launching a combined video optimization solution that delivers a high quality video experience while simultaneously reducing radio network loading by up to 25 per cent. By combining the capabilities of Flexi Content Optimizer, policy management and new real-time congestion awareness, which is unique to Nokia Siemens Networks, operators can match video quality to each user's device.

Flexi Content Optimizer adjusts video content and re-scales video streaming to match the smartphone screen size. Users enjoy the best quality video that their smartphones and tablets can support, and because less data is transferred, there is less pressure on radio network capacity. This translates into more efficient use of radio network resources, and lower transmission costs and network investment.

Real-time congestion awareness enables the network to react instantly when a base station becomes heavily loaded. Video optimization then ensures that the operator’s most valuable subscribers in a specific location enjoy the best video quality.
