A Mobixell Networks statement said that this move would play a key role in Safaricom’s strategy to offer a better user experience with faster access to data services for its 19mn subscribers.

The statement added that Mobixell Web acceleration technology was a part of the Mobixell Seamless Access mobile multi-service platform, which also offered industry leading video optimisation and value-added data services.

According to Mobixell, Seamless Access will be integrated into the operator’s wireless core network to accelerate the browsing response and page load times for Internet content and services.

“For mobile users, this means an enhanced browsing experience. Mobixell is also providing Safaricom with advanced content filtering capabilities which enable Safaricom users to protect their mobile devices from adult or other offensive web content,” the company said.

Safaricom IT director, Thibaud Rerolle, said, “We are committed to providing the best possible experience for our customers and we’ve turned to Mobixell to help us to do that.

“Our customers will now have faster access to data services and at the same time will be able to protect their families from unsuitable content. Together with Mobixell, we will continue to enhance Safaricom’s network performance.”

Mobixell vice-president marketing, Noam Green, added, “Web access, and particularly faster browsing response time, is a key differentiator for operators in a competitive marketplace.

“Mobixell Seamless Access Web acceleration will help operators stand apart by providing a superior user experience. That performance boost is especially important for operators such as Safaricom where subscribers rely heavily on the mobile network for Internet access.”
