Opanga Announces Mobile CDN Platform for Media Companies

New Mobile Edge Caching Software Makes Streaming Video Flawless Across Cellular Networks

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2014) - Opanga Networks, the leading innovator of mobile CDN solutions, today announced the NetRover Series 3 platform. NetRover is a mobile content distribution technology specifically designed to navigate the challenges inherent within cellular networks, such as highly variable radio conditions and performance-damaging congestion. For apps powered by NetRover, this means the elimination of traditional mobile video performance issues such as delayed starts, excessive buffering and stalling -- the de facto experience for today's frustrated consumers. NetRover enables instant-start video playback in high resolution with no buffering or stalling. This dramatic difference in user experience is a key differentiator for media companies looking to significantly boost consumer engagement and monetize their premium content through high-value video ads (seamlessly integrated with Google DoubleClick™).

"This is clearly an exciting time to provide solutions that help media companies deliver a broadcast-quality viewing experience on mobile devices," said VP of Technology Chip Suttles, of the Seattle Seahawks. "Opanga's NetRover Series 3 technology creates a premium consumer experience. Opanga allows us to play offense with mobile video and provide a fantastic experience for our fans."

"As consumers embrace mobile video on smartphones and tablets, networks are crumbling under the traffic load. Consumer's are paying a heavy price for cellular-video performance that is poor, and getting worse," said Dave Gibbons, CEO of Opanga Networks. "Media companies that integrate Opanga's NetRover technology into their mobile applications can now guarantee a consistent quality of experience that consumers and advertisers alike will embrace. The revenue potential of high-impact video ads that play flawlessly in any radio coverage environment is staggering, given a solution is available to deliver such a consistently high-quality experience. NetRover is the key enabling factor to realize the potential of mobile video, offering a platform for advertising monetization unrivaled by any other solution."
