• Disruptive class of video optimization tools – Video optimization tools that deliver 30 to 80 percent smaller videos compared to the most optimal in the industry, while maintaining the same perceptible quality. Five years of video analyses and research in conjunction with EPFL Switzerland led to this patent-pending, codec-agnostic technology that uses machine learning and automates the process of choosing the right set of encoding parameters for a video based on its content. (Crunch Media Works)

• ‘Deploy Anywhere’ high-density, distributed compute capabilities – Enabled by eco-friendly, micro-data centers based on a revolutionary liquid immersion cooling solution that cuts power by as much as 60 percent, increases density by as much at 80 percent and extends the reach of high-powered, multi-access, edge compute solutions to virtually any environment to enable new enterprise services. (Engineered Fluids)

• Cloud-based Spectrum Controller – Pioneering Spectrum Controller that delivers software-defined spectrum through a cloud-based Spectrum Access System (SAS) empowering a revolution in shared spectrum possibilities on CBRS 3.5 GHz and future bands. (Federated Wireless)

• Simplified deployment and management of MEC, Data Centers, and IoT assets – Physical and virtual 3-D visualization tool for data center modeling, planning, and operating that enables the easy, cost effective, and predictable deployment of everything from distributed compute capabilities to remote surveillance cameras for MEC, data centers and IoT. (nuPSYS)

• Mobile data and traffic management – Proven track record of delivering innovation and consistent quality of experience for video and all-IP traffic for mobile data access. The fully NFV solution enables mobile operators to maximize their network, to manage and monetize IP traffic (encrypted & unencrypted) at the lowest total cost of ownership. (Openwave Mobility)

Coriant’s tiered Multi-Sided Platform Partner Program provides customers a flexible, co-creation business model for new revenue-generating services that encompasses the seamless introduction of disruptive technologies as well as comprehensive go-to-market and lifecycle support capabilities that accelerate time-to-revenue. Highlights include:

“The Internet of Things (IoT) is increasingly vulnerable to unauthorized manipulation of devices. Most experts consider cybersecurity to be the greatest challenge for IoT’s expansion into the mainstream. Bluechip is actively developing solutions that work with IoT devices to securely store and transmit data. Coriant’s impressive network of Internet operators and commitment to excellence will provide Bluechip the opportunity to reach markets that will thrive with our product and services. We are excited to have this partnership expand cybersecurity protection to all IoT devices and platforms across the globe.”
Uri Kreisman, COO, Bluechip Systems

“Video is rapidly growing as a preferred medium for communication and disseminating information. With the increase in pixel density on modern day devices, consumers are now able to discern the difference between high-definition video and standard definition even on smaller screens. At the same time, storage and streaming HD videos is becoming challenging and cost-prohibitive for telecoms engaged in live and VoD video services. At Crunch, we have developed a new class of video optimization tools which produce videos that are up to 80 percent smaller than those compared to the most optimal in the industry, while maintaining the same perceptible quality. This will not only reduce the cost to store and broadcast videos, but it also helps create a better user experience. We are happy to showcase our products and services with Coriant at Mobile World Congress 2018 to give telecoms and Internet operators first-hand experience of how they can benefit from deploying our technology in their video processing, storage and broadcasting.”
Amit Ramchandran, President & CEO, Crunch Media Works

“The amazing pace of innovation across a wide variety of industries is increasingly dependent on best-of-breed innovations in thermal management for ever more powerful electronic components and systems. As these devices become ever smaller, and yet more powerful, they give off increasing amounts of waste heat which must be carefully managed to maintain safety and optimal operating conditions. Built upon our ElectroCool® engineered dielectric fluids, we are working closely with Coriant to bring our full immersion, single phase cooling technology innovation to customers to support and accelerate the deployment of environmental-friendly micro- and pico-edge data centers to support AI, IoT, real-time decisions, and other intensive compute applications.”

“The dramatic increase in demand for mobile data is being driven by video traffic. Anyone in the business of providing data as a service has to have a video strategy to both manage the diversity of video and deliver an outstanding Quality of Experience – even for encrypted content. The business consequence of not having the software tools to strategically manage this growth is that Over the Top (OTT) providers will take the revenue, as they have done with voice and messaging, and leave the cost to the operator. The combination of Openwave Mobility’s innovative video and all IP traffic management solution with Coriant’s excellent industry leadership together in a best of breed ecosystem provides the foundation for operators to secure and deliver revenues today and in the future.”
