Jin-Magic and Ubiquisys Partner to Improve Small Cell Performance
Feb 21, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Jin-Magic, developer of software to stabilise and optimize internet traffic, and Ubiquisys, a developer of multi-mode small cells, announced that the two companies are working together to improve the performance and quality of experience of small cells.
According to a release, by dynamically optimizing TCP traffic from within heavily-loaded small cells, capacity to service simultaneous TCP sessions can be increased multiple times to improve quality of experience in a fair and democratic way.
Ubiquisys metrocells provide coverage and capacity in capacity hotspots over 3G, LTE and WiFi interfaces. With the inexorable growth in mobile data usage, any one of these air interfaces, as well as the backhaul IP connection, can regularly run at close to their full capacity. Without intelligent data flow management, this inevitably leads to a TCP tug-of-war, with inefficient sharing of resources between users and technologies, additional network signalling traffic and an erratic user experience.
The solution consists of Jin-Magic optimization software running on a Ubiquisys smart cell - an intelligent small cell hotspot with an integrated computing platform based on Intel architecture. By monitoring all of the TCP/IP traffic as it passes through the cell, Jin-Magic software balances and stabilizes individual TCP sessions without making any changes to packets, data, or protocol. The patented software is capable of maximizing bandwidth utilization of the network and enables fair sharing of the available bandwidth among the users.
"Small cells combine multiple technologies and use commodity backhaul to deliver high quality capacity at minimum cost - Jin-Magic's innovative software means they continue to deliver even at very high utilisation," said Pete Keevill, VP Engineering and co-founder, Ubiquisys. "Our smart cell provides the computing power to run robust applications like Jin-Magic where they are most useful and effective, at the edge of the network."
"Jin-Magic software is extremely efficient and scalable - light enough to run on a smartphone, but powerful enough to handle a million simultaneous TCP sessions when run in the network," said Koji Morihiro, President and CEO Jin-Magic. "The Ubiquisys smart cell provides a compelling new platform for Jin-Magic to do its work where it matters most - close to mobile users."
The application is distributed and remotely provisioned on smart cells through the Intel AppUp SMB Service, which is built on the Intel Hybrid Cloud software platform, that enables service providers to deliver the benefits of cloud computing on distributed networked devices.
