Latest Linux-Based Integra Platform Supports All Internet Traffic and Empowers Operators to Monitor, Manage and Monetize the Mobile Internet
MOBILE ASIA CONGRESS, Hong Kong – November 18, 2009 – Openwave Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: OPWV) one of the world’s leading software innovators offering a mediation platform and tools to mobilize the Internet, today announced Openwave® Integra 3.0, a Linux-based, proactive service mediation and policy management solution that supports all of Openwave’s service management products and affords operators the flexibility to select the deployment architecture and features that meet their specific needs, while reducing overall TCO. Openwave will demonstrate Integra 3.0, at stand B01 at Mobile Asia Congress located in Hong Kong, on November 18 - 19, 2009.
“The data tsunami is here and now, and we believe Integra 3.0 will enable customers to become more agile in response to growing network capacity and service demands driven from the staggering waves of data demand from an increasing array of mobile and consumer electronic devices,” said John Giere, senior vice president, products and marketing, Openwave. “As operators continue looking for ways to optimize their network resources, solutions like Integra 3.0 with its comprehensive policy controls and traffic management features will help operators create rich policy rules and enforcements to best manage their network.”
Integra 3.0 is designed to allow operators to effectively manage, monitor and monetize mobile traffic from an increasingly diverse set of devices and internet content all from a single point of control in-network. With Integra 3.0, the operator is fully capable of continuing to manage and provide services for traffic from legacy devices and networks while at the same time catering to the often separate needs of data hungry devices that are emerging in the market. Integra can rapidly and massively scale as traffic grows and deploy new mobile data services across converging access networks and devices.
“Mobile data usage and uptake is expected to lead to unprecedented data consumption patterns, with growth in a manner that will likely exceed the characteristics of the fixed line internet,” said Elisabeth Rainge, director, NGN Operations, IDC. “In order for operators to stay ahead of data consumption, they should consider both near and long-term solutions. To ensure that resources are fairly allocated in the face of the growing data demand, policy management solutions can help operators create rules and enforcement that manage precious network resources.”
Integra 3.0 seamlessly updates an operator’s WAP environment to embrace internet protocols, preserving and maximizing existing investments with new opportunities to develop revenue. Integra 3.0 orchestrates and mediates a set of mobile internet services, which are driven by a rich policy rules engine that allows each transaction processed to be treated as appropriate depending on such factors as user profile, device capabilities, content being accessed and network. Integra plug-in services architecture ensures that all value-added services provided by Openwave can be easily installed and deployed on top of Integra 3.0. The operator may also choose to develop or avail of other third party services through this plug-in API.
Additional Integra 3.0 features include:
• Linux OS support;
• Dynamic policy management based on multiple data inputs (subscriber, device , content, network and custom attributes);
• Real-time operational analytics: easily integrated to provide, for example, a real-time view of the most popular Web sites;
• Network and user authentication, identity control, management and distribution ;
• Dynamic congestion control management based on Integra’s mediation capabilities for low to high end devices and the ability to apply policy management on associated traffic;
• Location enablement: supports an open LS interface for obtaining location information and includes the ability to control the sharing of this information to content providers;
• HTTP 1.1, WAP 1 & 2, RTSP/RTP/RDT protocol stack support; and
• ID Privacy Control: enables the controlled release of encrypted identity to internet content providers.
