Today’s marketplace has put a premium on “anywhere, anytime” use, resulting in mobile users becoming acclimated to speedy delivery and on-demand access to their high-bandwidth applications. Mobile devices are no longer just for phone calls – smartphones have revolutionized the way we consume content, whether for business or personal use.
Add advanced 4G LTE network deployments to the mix, and data usage has drastically grown. Along with it is the rise of operating costs, yet the average revenue per user (ARPU) is stagnant. In order to avoid the red, service providers are tasked with finding innovative methods to cultivate support for new network demands. This means finding better ways to utilize resources, all while continuing to rollout new services and applications that will keep users enticed.
In order to provide service providers a viable path to profit, F5 has created a handbook that lays out 15 ways to increase revenue. In it, service providers can learn how to optimize their network while still keeping an eye on the bottom line. The handbook also shows how using a common platform – like F5 Synthesis – can enhance the user experience and provide better services.
The handbook focuses on challenges associated with dynamic service chaining, transmission control protocol (TCP) optimization, and content insertion, just to name a few. After explaining the obstacles service providers face, the handbook proposes possible solutions in an effort to enable mobile network operators to optimize, secure, and monetize their networks. With F5 Synthesis, the handbook illustrates how a shared platform can reduce operational costs and still improve service-provisioning speed while addressing key security worries across the network.
