Open Channel software products restore control over mobile data traffic to wireless carriers, reducing their costs and improving the customer experience for subscribers. The four Open Channel products deliver intelligent on-device mobile traffic visibility, optimization, and management. The software conserves network resources by performing traffic management at the client, before it can impact the network. The Open Channel platform forms the foundation for sophisticated mobile analytics, offering deep insight into network traffic patterns, and for delivering actionable intelligence to help carriers optimize finite network resources.
Open Channel products reduce costs for mobile carriers and improve the customer experience for subscribers with on-device management and optimization of mobile traffic.
Open Channel Signaling Optimization relieves wireless network congestion by significantly reducing mobile application signaling activity. It reduces network requests to a minimum by detecting redundant traffic patterns and by caching content on the client. Devices connect to the network only when updates are available, significantly reducing the impact of mobile signaling on network resources.
Open Channel Policy Enforcement enforces context-specific policies on the device, allowing carriers to manage mobile traffic much more effectively. Client-side enforcement occurs before traffic can impact the network, in contrast to network-side enforcement that occurs only after traffic has already consumed network resources. Policy Enforcement also lets operators create innovative mobile service plans targeted to the needs of their subscribers.
Open Channel Seamless Mobility delivers uninterrupted service delivery for mobile applications as devices move between the wireless carrier network and Wi-Fi. Operators can provide a superior end-user experience while offloading traffic from the mobile network. The software acts as an intermediary between applications and the radio interface so that applications perform as if connected continuously to the same radio source.
Open Channel Wi-Fi QoE
maximizes Wi-Fi offloading and improves end-user experience. The software accurately measures quality of experience (QoE) in real time on all networks detected by the device, using multiple configurable parameters. Based on this assessment, the operator can decide when and where to drive offload to Wi-Fi sources. Carriers also gain detailed intelligence into mobile client behavior.

The latest release of SEVEN Networks Open Channel software products features new plug-and-play in-network deployment, reducing time-to-value for mobile operators. Customers benefit from both fast implementation and the control that comes from deploying the software in-network.
Open Channel products include a client component and a server component, working together to manage and optimize mobile data traffic. The client software extends policy-based control to the mobile handset, managing traffic at the source – before it impacts the network. The server software lets carriers define the policies that govern data traffic and functions as a polling server to monitor for updates to mobile application data. Customers have a choice of deployment models for the server component. The hosted model is recommended for trials and initial device launches while in-network deployment is being prepared. The in-network model provides maximum control for operators and is ideal for long-term, large scale use.
