MTS Russia selects Flash Networks
The deal was won last year, after a RFP shortlisting 4 major vendors. A trial in Murmansk followed the selection of Flash Networks. The solution is being deployed commercially and will be live at the end of 2011.
This is the first major announcement from Flash Networks in the video optimization space, confirming the conversion and acquisition of some of their customers from web optimization to video optimization.
“Using the data optimization platform allows us to reduce our mobile network data transmission load by almost 40% and our transit load by 30%, ultimately resulting in faster Internet speeds and better quality of data services for our users”said Sergei Stepanyuk, Head of Data Transmission Department at MTS.
