Opera’s Skyfire Adds Streaming Audio Optimization
MOUNTAINVIEW, CALIF.— Opera Software’s Skyfire unit has added streaming audio optimization as a new feature to Rocket Optimizer, its NFV-ready video and data optimization platform for mobile operators.
The addition of optimized audio streaming to Rocket Optimizer also comes as increasing numbers of mobile operators partner with digital music streaming services as a way to differentiate themselves in the market, improve customer loyalty and reduce churn. It is for this reason that an increasing number of operators don¹t count music streaming against their customers¹ data plans.
Rocket Optimizer manages streaming audio traffic in the same way that it optimizes mobile video traffic. It uses its built-in Experience Assurance functionality to automatically detect when the end-user’s live audio stream is about to stall, buffer or drop off entirely due to a poor connection, before the problem starts. Rocket Optimizer then adapts the audio stream to fit the available capacity in the network.
Rocket Optimizer’s streaming audio optimization supports both MP3 and MP4 stream formats, and can also convert streams to the more efficient AAC+ codec, which is able to deliver high audio quality over a low bitrate connection to any compatible device.
