Mobile Video Index 

Mobile video trends based on live operator data

Based on data from over 30 mobile operators, our Mobile Video Index will inform you of what's really happening in mobile networks today

And the results may surprise you!

The challenge to mobile network operators to drive data revenues and manage subscriber Quality of Experience (QoE) has never been greater. And yet many operators are building out infrastructure based on an incomplete picture of the mobile data trends that are actually taking place. 

  • Is it true that Facebook Video is set to overtake YouTube?
  • Mobile video could increase 9-fold, and HD on mobile is driving growth faster and further than predictions suggested.
  • The onslaught of QUIC threatens to outpace anything the industry has seen.
  •  Levels of encrypted traffic continue to soar – how can mobile operators manage what they can’t see?
  • And what are subscribers actually DOING with mobile video - just how picky are they when it comes to quality of experience?

All of these topics are discussed in the Mobile Video Index. Discussion is based on data obtained from Openwave Mobility Traffic Management Solutions running in-network, and an exclusive consumer survey carried out by Censuswide. The MVI includes views by experts from ABI Research and Analysis Mason.
