Safaricom, Kenya’s biggest mobile operator, has deployed a mobile data traffic management solution from US-based Mobixell Networks.

The implementation is part of Safaricom’s strategy to offer the best available user experience with faster access to data services for its 19 million subscribers.

Mobixell Web acceleration technology is a part of the Mobixell Seamless Access mobile multi-service platform which also offers video optimisation and value added data services.

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

This gives an enhanced browsing experience and will allow Safaricom to manage its mobile network more efficiently.

Mobixell is also providing Safaricom with advanced content filtering capabilities which will allow users protect their mobile devices from adult or other offensive web content.

“We are committed to providing the best possible experience for our customers and we’ve turned to Mobixell to help us to do that,” said Thibaud Rerolle, director technology and IT, Safaricom. “Our customers will now have faster access to data services faster 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.”
