Facebook, Skype, and WhatsApp Waste RAN Resources Communicating with Server 6 Times Each Hour When Idle

Flash Networks xtraAir(TM) reduces the volume of radio connections and signaling events to increase RAN efficiency

EDISON, New Jersey, May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Flash Networks, the leading provider of mobile Internet optimization and monetization
solutions released today results from its first deployment with live operator network
traffic showing that when Facebook, Skype, and WhatsApp were running in the background
over a twelve hour period, they communicated with the network server 68 times, or about
six times per hour. After implementing Flash Networks xtraAir(TM) to minimize unnecessary
communications when the device is in idle state, the applications established 22.7% fewer
radio connections, conserving RAN resources and minimizing unnecessary signaling, without
affecting service or user data.  For a carrier with 10M subscribers this could result in a
reduction of 600 million unnecessary messages per day, enabling them to support 20% more
users with the same network resources.  These tests were conducted in cooperation with a
global network operator group in Europe.  

Billions of smart objects, mobile devices and applications are being added to mobile
networks creating a huge demand for radio connections. As the number of connected devices
continues to grow rapidly, operators will need solutions that will enable them to connect
to more "things" using the same network infrastructure.  Flash Networks' xtraAir(TM)
Signaling and Radio Connection Optimization reduces the number of RRC (radio resource
control) state changes and concurrent radio connections enabling up to 35% more users to
be served using the same network resources. As a result, radio spectral efficiency is
improved enabling operators to reduce investment in additional infrastructure to meet the
demand for more radio connections.

Flash Networks xtraAir(TM) automatically improves radio network performance by
managing  traffic flows at the network core using field proven, proprietary and patent
pending technology that streamlines mobile data traffic to maximize spectrum utilization.

"The need to beef up capacity to keep up with the insatiable demand for mobile data
combined with falling revenues is putting the squeeze on operators to make the most of
existing radio resources," said Ofer Gottfried, CTO at Flash Networks. "In the near future
operators will be faced with buying more radio capacity or using their existing resources
more efficiently, and xtraAir(TM) can provide them with a solution to reduce the needed
