Skyfire announced the launch of its ".. enhanced video and data optimization platform for operators - Rocket Optimizer 3.0. In this release .. Skyfire’s Rocket Optimizer, which already provides operators with a 60% boost in bandwidth capacity across smartphones, tablets and PCs, is announcing the addition of these new features in Rocket Optimizer 3.0: Measurement of bandwidth conditions in real time for every subscriber session .. CloudBurst Architecture that allows for instant expansion of optimization capacity to the carrier or public clouds, Enhanced optimization algorithms for the MP4 and H.264 video standards and CloudCache – a cloud-based caching solution that brings significant reductions in operator server, peering and IP transit costs"
To my question, Jay Hinman (pictured), Sr. Director, Marketing, Skyfire explained that "Our CloudCache solution we've announced is deliberately focused on video and large images only, in order to not only combat the largest bandwidth hog on networks (and largest disrupter of end-user experience), but also to reduce the number of deployed servers needed and to reduce CPU. We don't compete with general transparent caching solutions and instead seek to complement and improve upon them" (see chart below).
