CLAMART, France and BARCELONA, -- OneAccess Networks, the European market leader in multi-service access routers and carrier Ethernet access devices, is bringing its WAN optimization expertise within reach of hundreds of millions of Android smartphone and tablet users with the launch of its AirBooster technology at this year's Mobile World Congress.
AirBooster's advanced bandwidth optimization technology improves the speed and capacity of a typical 3G broadband connection by as much as 50%, enabling LAN-speed performance when connecting to WAN or Cloud-based business applications using a tablet.
Visitors to the OneAccess stand at Mobile World Congress (Hall 2.1 Booth A82) will be able to experience a live demonstration of the AirBooster solution, and learn more about the available deployment options for service providers.
With the increasing use of tablets to access bandwidth-hungry, corporate applications over a 3G connection, the quality of service delivered by mobile operator is now critically important to the productivity of many business operations. The OneAccess AirBooster solution provides mobile operators with the ability to exploit this growing business trend by offering business customers the consistent performance requirements needed to ensure that their tablet investments deliver maximum cost and efficiency benefits; thus opening opportunities to introduce premium services for 3G business customers; and generating new revenues streams and reducing customer churn.
Available as a downloadable client for any Android platform, AirBooster connects via 3G or WiFi to a premises-based OneAccess multi-service access router with integrated onboard WAN optimization capabilities (such as the ONE-1540), enabling mobile business users to benefit from a fast, reliable LAN-like experience that optimizes critical applications.
"Mobile users just want to easily connect back to their office but, without optimization, 3G often feels too slow for business critical apps. AirBooster extends the reach of operator-enabled WAN optimization capabilities to the tablets and smart devices that businesses are so anxious to target for improved workflows and increased productivity," commented Pravin Mirchandani, Chief Marketing Officer at OneAccess Networks. "AirBooster extends our vision for a single branch-office based router that consolidates multiple value-adding capabilities and concentrates multiple revenue generating opportunities for the operators that deploy them."
AirBooster is available to operators in all global territories now, under license from OneAccess. Future cloud-hosted deployment options are planned for release later in 2012.
