I covered Saguna before ("Saguna's Investor: ADVA Optical Networking ($1M, 10%)" - here), and I used this opportunity to ask Lior Fite (pictured), Founder and CEO, for an update on Saguna's business:
"In the last year we have managed to successfully complete with our partners and customers live network trials in Europe, US and Asia. We have added 4 new equipment vendors as licensees of our technology, and we expect to see our first customers (both cell-site-GW and Base-Stations) going to GA availability of new Smart RAN systems during Q2 2013. Besides adding new licensees during 2013 we will also focus on harnessing our technology to create new monetization options with first focus on CDN service in the model PAAS.
The result from our field trials leave no room for doubt demonstrating the following performance gains: Better users experience (Shorting the time any web page download by 10% to 20%, Smooth and stall free video watching) and Better network economics (Enabling 50% more capacity over the same back haul network, 15% to 20% more packets flowing over the same RF interface)"
