SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VirtuLocity Networks, a software acceleration platform-as-a-service (PaaS) company, today made its official debut at the inaugural Mobile World Congress Americas in San Francisco. The company’s patented congestion control solutions have been leveraged by global Content Distributed Network providers (CDNs) and mobile operators, to reduce the effects of packet loss during transmission, effectively accelerating the transit time to mobile subscribers. In fact, the solution has been proven to improve throughput and data payload transport time by typically up to 80 percent. Attendees will be able to see a demo and speak with VirtuLocity executives at stand 2300B5 in the 4YFN section in the South Hall.
“Even in the United States and Canada – two of the most reliable countries in the world for Internet connection – nearly half of users experience significant packet loss, resulting in buffering and low-quality Internet connections. Given the increased usage of streaming video, gaming, and other real-time applications such as VR and AR by mobile subscribers today, this is unacceptable,” said Greg Gum, CEO and co-founder of VirtuLocity Networks. “Through our virtual acceleration products, mobile operators and content distributors can accelerate and improve bandwidth efficiency for challenging broadband connections without buying additional spectrum, backhaul capacity, hardware appliances, or requiring matching client-side software to improve transit time.”
VirtuLocity’s solutions dynamically learn and adapt to changing network conditions, automatically adjusting for packet loss, distance and latency to deliver the maximum possible throughput. The company offers two solutions:
- VLNCloud™ is a virtualized cloud service that accelerates a cloud connection’s bandwidth throughput and transit time for user-to-cloud, cloud-to-end-user or cloud-to-cloud connections, and can be supported on several of the major hyper scale cloud platforms including AWS EC2, Azure or Google GCP. Read the full data sheet here.
- VLN™ Software is an on-premise software solution that accelerates a WAN connection’s bandwidth throughput and transit time for private, public or hybrid cloud applications. The software can be pointed downstream or upstream to improve WAN performance without having to be bookended. Read the full data sheet here.
VirtuLocity recently completed its seed round funding from Hillcrest Venture Partners, a California-based venture capital firm that specializes in transformative software and services companies and has successful exits to Akamai, Duke Energy, and Facebook.
Mobile operators and CDNs are increasingly facing demands for delivering higher definition video streaming, real time multiplayer gaming, or VR/AR applications closer to their mobile subscribers for a better, more robust user experience. Combined with moving more and more applications to the cloud, it’s critical that mobile operators and CDNs make the most of the existing network connectivity since spectrum -- even 5G -- is limited and today’s applications require even faster, more consistent, low latency, error free connectivity.
“VirtuLocity has delivered a technology that could fundamentally shift our Internet capabilities and cloud functionality and is additive and complementary with other new methods such as SD-WAN, caching, and RUM traffic steering,” noted Julian Lin, Hillcrest’s co-founder and managing director. “They have developed an as-you-need-it, cost effective way to address the increasingly complex and demanding networking needs of mobile operators and CDNs, without necessarily adding more bandwidth or hardware, and we’re thrilled to be part of their story.”
VirtuLocity VLNCloud™ and VLN™ Software are currently available for customers worldwide with flexible on-demand pricing, free trials, and either on-premise or cloud based deployment models. For more information or to discuss your application needs, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
