Facebook and Ericsson innovate to improve network performance for better app coverage
As part of Internet.org’s mission to bring affordable internet access to the two-thirds of the world not yet connected, Facebook and Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC), in conjunction with XL Axiata, have created a new methodology to measure and improve end-to-end network performance using simulated Facebook application use cases. Network-wide optimization implemented through the joint project delivered up to 70 percent improvement in app coverage.
The resultant optimizations improved app coverage by up to 70 percent:
• Number of connections completed within three seconds improved up to 70 percent
• Time to content improved up to 70 percent
• Upload time improved up to 50 percent
