Avvasi Honored with Branham300 Award

Waterloo, ONTARIO — April 5, 2011 — Avvasi Inc. has won a coveted 2011 Branham300 award in the Top-25-Up-and-Comers category, one of four separate categories that make up the award. Branham300 Up and Comers are selected based on long-term promise and level of innovation, whether in a new technology area or improving an existing technology in a disruptive manner.

For nearly 20 years, the Branham300 has highlighted the top Canadian and Multinational Information and Communications Technology (ICT) companies operating in Canada, as ranked by revenues. It illustrates the depth and breadth of innovative technologies developed in Canada and is widely considered to be a leading source of intelligence on Canada’s ICT industry.

“The innovative companies recognized on this years Top 25 Up and Comers listing represent Canada’s most innovative, disruptive and progressive start-ups,” said Wayne Gudbranson, President and CEO of Branham Group. “Avvasi’s next generation video networking technology is poised to reshape the approach that service providers take when monetizing videos on their networks.”

Solving the Greatest Challenge in Mobile Video
The growth of video traffic has far outpaced the development of analytics and business intelligence tools required to measure video service quality and usage trends. Not only does the inability to measure video quality risk unprecedented churn rates, it most certainly hampers any attempt to monetize video. Now more than ever, service providers need to be able to capture, analyze and understand the subscriber experience. At the core of Avvasi solutions is a unique technology that offers a scalable, passive measurement capability that reports quality of experience (QoE) with on-deck and over-the-top (OTT) video content such as Netflix®, YouTube™, and iTunes™.

“We are honored to be selected as an Up and Comer on the 2011 Edition of the Branham300,” said Mate Prgin, president and CEO of Avvasi Inc. “This is a strong endorsement for our technology, and it also highlights the challenges and opportunities that video presents in the mobile and fixed networking markets.”
