Airspan Networks Partners With Jin-Magic to Improve the Delivery of TCP Traffic Over LTE

"Q-Magic" Technology Dramatically Increases the Stability and Number of Concurrent Video Streams Supported by Airspan's LTE eNodeBs

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - Feb 21, 2016) - Airspan Networks Inc., a leading provider of LTE small cells and small cell backhaul solutions announced today it will be demonstrating Q-Magic, from Tokyo based software developer Jin-Magic Inc., to enhance the video streaming in Airspan's LTE small cell product lines.

Wireless carriers around the world continue to face the challenge of keeping up with the capacity demands of video hungry users. As networks become increasingly congested carriers are forced to invest in additional infrastructure to provide a high quality user experience. With "Q-Magic" technology integrated into Airspan's class leading LTE small cells there is a dramatic increase in the number of users that can be satisfied by each LTE base station.

Q-Magic works by reducing TCP network latency and jitter, while remaining compatible with all IP and LTE industry standards. The solution has a very small memory and processing overhead and runs across Airspan's entire family of LTE eNodeB solutions, namely AirUnity, AirVelocity, AirSynergy, Air4G and AirHarmony.

"This live demonstration of Airspan's enhanced LTE small cells capacity again demonstrates the additional innovation Airspan brings to LTE network operators who continue to look for increases in their video streaming network capacity," said Moti Bitter Airspan's Vice President, Product Management. "Q-magic is standards-based and was quickly and efficiently integrated to our small cell eNodeBs. This capability enables our small cells to intelligently maximize the number of customers that can be satisfied without making any changes to the standard air interface or networking protocols."

"We are very pleased to be able to contribute to Airspan's industry leading capabilities," said Koji Morihiro, CEO, Jin-Magic, Inc. "The demonstration shows how our unique software can transparently integrate into existing wireless network solutions and immediately contribute to improve the flow of Internet traffic and quality of user experience in a big way."
