WarpEngine™ CT is a scalable network optimization proxy appliance that processes GTP sessions with little to no overhead. It is deployed at LTE cell towers and optimizes uploads and downloads for smartphones associated with that particular cell tower.
Performance for WarpEngine™ CT depends on network variables such as round trip time (RTT), packet loss %, available bandwidth, size of content, and other factors. It is based on Badu’s WarpTCP™ technology, which was developed specifically to perform well in mobile and wireless networks.
WarpTCP™ — Smarter Congestion Control
TCP protocol was invented 35+ years ago, however it was never designed for use in massive cloud infrastructures or wireless networks. It was architected with guaranteed delivery in mind, not speed. Given the jittery nature of wireless networks, TCP often overreacts to congestion and network variations. The result is a drastic drop in throughput, causing a poor user experience.
WarpTCP™ is a set of intelligent algorithms that maximize TCP throughput in the face of network variations such as delay, jitter, packet loss and random bandwidth fluctuation. It was especially designed to maintain high TCP throughput in wireless networks such as LTE and Wi-Fi. Compared to competing solutions, WarpTCP™ does not overreact to temporary or false- alarm congestion, minimizes re-transmissions, and recovers faster from a congestion event.
WarpEngine™ is an ideal LTE performance optimization solution for the use cases below:
- Mobile Operator’s LTE RAN network to improve end-user quality of experience.
- Mobile Operator’s LTE core network to improve throughput for Mobile Last Mile.
- LTE DAS (Distributed Antenna System) deployments to improve effective coverage area and throughput.
- Mobile LTE cell sites such as RDUs (Rapid Deployment Units) and COWs (Cell on Wheels) to handle high-traffic scenarios.
