Bytemobile, Inc. and Opera Software ASA have announced a joint development, marketing and sales agreement for handset browser optimization. The two companies also announced the availability of a high-performance Opera Mobile browser powered by Bytemobile's Optimization Services Node (OSN) Monaco Edition.
The companies expect these integrated products to accelerate current browser speeds by up to three times on 3G networks, while optimizing network efficiency by reducing per-transaction data volumes.
The resulting solution, a full-HTML handset browser enhanced by Monaco, is designed for rapid integration and deployment by mobile handset manufacturers and network operators.
Bytemobile's OSN has been implemented by more than 60 operators worldwide and the new Bytemobile-enhanced Opera Mobile browser is compatible with all of these operators' platforms. The solution is also compatible with all handset platforms supported by Opera Mobile, which currently serves approximately 25 million mobile subscribers worldwide.
