It contributes to a significant portion of the service providers’ data revenue today.”

“Today, it is evident that video content consumption is the key driver for data traffic growth on service provider networks. These providers need to manage the growing costs of this demand, offer a compelling experience to their customers and enable new revenue opportunities,” said Alex Staddon-Smith, senior vice president, Global Sales and Business Development, Vantrix.
