This is Your Network on Instagram – Avvasi Highlights the Impact of Facebook’s Instagram Videos
Instagram videos immediately flooded mobile networks and exceeded YouTube and Vine
WATERLOO, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Avvasi Inc., the world’s only vendor of QoE-driven video management and monetization solutions is first to highlight the impact of Facebook’s (Nasdaq: FB) Instagram video launch on mobile networks. Avvasi’s Q-VUE is the industry-leading mobile video Quality of Experience (QoE) measurement tool and is deployed at several tier-1 mobile operators globally. Q-VUE was able to immediately measure and report the surge of videos resulting from the launch of the video feature on Instagram and Facebook.
“It is amazing to observe the impact that a new video service can have on a network overnight”
The impact on mobile networks is significant as the total number of video sessions observed has doubled since service launch, with Instagram now accounting for over 30% of the total OTT video, instantaneously passing Google’s (Nasdaq: GOOG) YouTube and Twitter’s Vine. Furthermore, in some networks, the service launch has negatively impacted the overall quality of video delivered, due to the sudden increase in traffic and network congestion.
Thanks to Avvasi’s video measurement and management technology, Q-VUE and Q-SRV equipped networks benefited from early alert detection and were able to immediately measure and manage the surge in video traffic to mitigate the impact on their overall customer video experience.
“It is amazing to observe the impact that a new video service can have on a network overnight,” said Mate Prgin, President and CEO of Avvasi. “Avvasi technology enables service providers to detect, analyze and monetize mobile OTT video in real time. When a new OTT video service can bring a network to its knees in seconds, it is crucial for operators to have the tools to measure, manage and improve the video experience. Avvasi is committed to helping carriers control and monetize the OTT video opportunity.”
