Meet Jet Toolbar, a component of a traffic management package good for mobile and landline broadband networks alike. It is a small yet powerful widget that appears on every web-page visited to display information and/or tools for communication between the operator and the user.

Jet Toolbar can be used for:

  • One-way communication between the operator and subscriber groups (i.e. sending service-related information to advise users of scheduled network maintenance or a special offer
  • One-way communication between the operator and individual users (sending standard messages to inform them of changes in their personal status)
  • Two-way communication when he subscriber can manage the connection using additional Toolbar buttons such as the Turbo button to increase bandwidth for a certain period of time
  • Three-way communication involving a third party, e.g. an advertising agency sending targeted ads to the user’s Toolbar based on customer profiles supplied by the operator. Note that these data are anonymous to maintain confidentiality

Jet Toolbar advantages

  • Guaranteed support of all leading web browsers (MS Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox Mozilla, Opera, Apple Safari)
  • Possible integration with the operator’s infrastructure and content providers to receive and format information/content for display
  • 100% transparent operation. Requests to the Internet are sent from the user’s IP address. The subscriber receives responses from the IP address of the server. The customer’s browser requires no setup
  • Proxying and data formatting for display are provided by separate components. Toolbar Proxy just inserts the JSC into HTMP pages. Data is formatted for display via a request to the Toolbar Application Server
  • Only HTTP traffic passes through Toolbar Proxy, and headers are unpacked and read only for HTML pages. Hardware requirements for Toolbar Proxy are therefore fairly modest
  • Support of compressed content (gzip and others) by Jet Toolbar Proxy
  • Limited use of DPI ports. The traffic passes DPI only once in each direction. Jet Toolbar thus has a minimum impact on network bandwidth and fault tolerance

No operator can survive in today’s market without offering an ample selection of top-notch services. Moreover, any such services, traditional and new ones alike, need to be marketed with a focus on user-specific needs. To this end, the operator needs a convenient user-friendly tool for instant two-way communication with the subscriber. Jet Toolbar is precisely this instrument.
