TCP traffic optimization focuses on enhancing the transmission control protocol (TCP), which accounts for the majority of internet traffic. The ideal TCP stack should maximize a subscriber’s quality of experience (QoE). To accomplish this, it must establish high goodput, minimize buffer bloat, and provide flow fairness.
Video traffic will account for 76% of all network traffic by 2025. Manage it intelligently to minimize network CapEx and OpEx, identify new services, increase average revenue per user (ARPU). With ABR video streaming, the client device selects the appropriate bit rate based on current network conditions and device capabilities.
To deliver and monetize value-added services while making more efficient use of network resources, service functions can be virtualized with the support of dynamic service function chaining. This gives service providers the control to define service chains based on user subscription, application requirements, or network conditions.
The F5 solution for S/Gi network simplification is based on high-performance, highly scalable, carrier-grade hardware and software that integrate key S/Gi network functions into one platform. Adding and removing these services is easy, and the unified framework means there is a common technology to understand and manage—so you can significantly reduce total cost of ownership by deploying fewer devices and streamlining your network.
