NewNet Communication Technologies, a Skyview Capital portfolio company and a recognized leader in mobile multimedia content delivery, secure transaction processing and wireless network infrastructure, today announced the launch of ViralTrack, a new innovative application for Mercury, its award-winning mobile multimedia platform.

ViralTrack’s sophisticated algorithms accurately monitor peer-to-peer multimedia traffic, providing mobile operators with the ability to extract statistical data from live network traffic and calculate the viral nature for any multimedia campaign. Operators can now precisely track the actual spread and reach of multimedia campaigns. The true reach of a campaign may be substantially greater than the original recipient list, providing operators with the opportunity to realize significant wholesale, retail and CPM revenue uplift.

ViralTrack also identifies and records subscriber content preferences, supporting subscriber segmentation based on specific content used in prior campaigns. This feature enables operators and third-party content providers to improve the effectiveness of future multimedia campaigns by targeting subscribers who preferred similar content in the past.

“Mercury’s ViralTrack is an essential business solution for operators as they seek to profit from the mobile multimedia opportunity,” said Sal Morlando, NewNet’s Executive Vice President for Product Management. “The intelligence ViralTrack acquires from subscriber preferences provides operators with an incredibly valuable array of data, supporting the development and delivery of highly targeted multimedia campaigns.”

ViralTrack is offered with the award-winning Mercury mobile multimedia platform. The Mercury platform enables carriers to implement highly cost effective, media rich campaigns such as live media broadcast, mobile advertising, streaming video and premium content subscription services. Optimized for multimedia messaging, Mercury delivers unsurpassed performance and scalability in a carrier grade platform, allowing carriers to capitalize on revenue generating mobile multimedia opportunities.
