Skyfire Slashes Setup Time for Mobile Video and Image Optimisation Testing from Months to Days

Mountain View, California, US, Monday, 5th November 2012 - Skyfire, a leader in mobile video optimization and cloud solutions for mobility, today announced a new program through which mobile network operators can test its video and image optimization solution, Rocket Optimizer, in their own network environment within 48 hours of registration. The RocketTest program, which is accepting pre-registration from operators beginning today, begins deployment to qualified operators on November 30th.

Skyfire recognizes that operators in increasingly competitive markets must be efficient and timely with their testing programs - or risk falling behind. Skyfire believes that actually demonstrating, not discussing, the value Rocket Optimizer can deliver is more proficient for operators. Skyfire can get operators started in days, as opposed to legacy inline solutions which can take months to set up for operator testing.

Skyfire's RocketTest program rapidly highlights the benefits of Skyfire's Rocket Optimizer, the industry's broadest and most powerful mobile video optimization solution that delivers video bandwidth savings of 64 per cent on average and an average of 50 per cent on images across smartphones, laptops and tablets. The platform can be deployed in the operator cloud, the Skyfire cloud, or in a hybrid, 'cloud burst' architecture - depending on preference. This approach allows Skyfire to provide instant capacity; ensuring extra flexibility, faster deployment and the ability to enable operators to begin saving bandwidth instantly.

Operators that are keen to test Skyfire's Rocket Optimizer solution can submit their details online (www.skyfire.com/en/for-operators/rockettest). The registered operator will be rapidly contacted by Skyfire to set them up with a RocketTest kit. Skyfire will provide a kit, whatever the operator's location, on November 30th, with new requests after this date to be fulfilled inside 48 hours. The RocketTest kit is easily set up and comprises sample test cases to enable operators to start testing multimedia optimisation immediately.

"Talk is cheap and anyone can make PowerPoint slides that 'sell' their solution," said Skyfire CEO Jeff Glueck. "Only Skyfire has a commercially-deployed, 4G-scalable, proven solution offering over 60 per cent average video bandwidth savings. With our advanced algorithms, broad format coverage, and on-the-fly transcoding and adaptation, we are ready and confident enough to let any wireless operator in the world test the Rocket Optimizer in their own environment. We want operators to witness for themselves how much better Skyfire Rocket Optimizer is at broad video format coverage, maximizing bandwidth savings and enhancing the end-user experience."

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
