Vasona Builds Cell Site Application Controller

Vasona Networks, a start-up based in Santa Clara, California with R&D in Tel Aviv, introduced its SmartAIR1000 edge application controller to address cellular bandwidth congestion.

 Vasona determines each cell's current capacity and characteristics of each of its concurrent sessions, whether streaming audio and video, web browsing, file downloads, or others. The platform, which sits between the RAN and the core network, then allocates bandwidth to each application in real time at the cell site level.

Vasona said its SmartAIR1000 is compatible with 3G and 4G networks, including cdma2000, UMTS/HSPA and LTE.

"Mobile networks can be unruly because traffic has no regard for other traffic — selfishly contending for as much resource and capacity as it can get," says Biren Sood, CEO of Vasona Networks. "Vasona Networks is working closely with mobile operators on establishing the SmartAIR platform to overcome bandwidth contention problems and enhance subscriber experiences."
