Vodafone GPRS Network Optimiser
Vodafone New Zealand will launch around the 9th July 2003 a new service for its GPRS users. The Bytemobile Macara software provides optimisation of some types of network communication, improving performance of GPRS connections by decreasing the amount of data sent and received.

The product will be available for users of its Mobile Connect Card, a PC Card reviewed on Geekzone a couple of months ago. This card works with laptops, adding mobile capabilites to a computer.

Vodafone is installing an Optimisation server in the GPRS network, which works in partnership with an Optimisation client (piece of software) that you install on your laptop. When the Optimisation client is started (or if it is configured to start automatically) it communicates with the Optimisation server and begins to compress/decompress the data that you send and receive to/from the Internet. It also improves the performance of basic Internet (IP) protocols over GPRS which has different characteristics to fixed-line connections.

Protocols optimised include HTTP (web surfing), POP3 (e-mail), FTP (file downloads), SMTP (e-mail) and IMAP (e-mail), as well as image reduction. This is 'lossless' Optimisation which means that no data is discarded during the compression/decompression process.

The Optimisation Client is provided free of charge and is included on the Vodafone Mobile Connect Card CD.
