Defining Smart Networks


Defining Smart Networks to Maximize Quality of Experience for OTT Applications

November 21st 2013 – 09:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

OTT (Over-The-Top) players are becoming increasingly relevant to the consumer, and smartphones are shifting focus from the network to downloadable applications. Application behavior, with respect to wireless network capabilities exploitation, is often not rational and left to chance, resulting in less quality and waste of wireless resources. OMA is working on a set of enablers (such as Always Online Infrastructure, REST NetAPI QoS, Device Apps Network Efficiency), which all together will define a framework to allow mobile operators to offer their networks to OTT players as smart networks.

During this event OMA will bring together app developers, network operators, equipment and handset vendors to discuss what the OTT vendors need from the operators to optimize application performance, as well as what capabilities the mobile ecosystem players can expose to ensure maximum Quality of Experience (QoE) for end users.
