High Quality Mobile Experience (HQME) is a platform with architecture that supports a proposed IEEE standard that leverages local storage and intelligent content caching to relieve network congestion and accelerate data delivery to the mobile device. HQME technology is designed to enable a more enjoyable mobile multimedia experience by more efficiently delivering bandwidth-intensive content and allowing users to consume it while bypassing common data delivery pitfalls and reducing negative impact to the overall network.
The HQME Steering Committee, a newly formed group of mobile and content industry leaders that includes SanDisk Corporation, SoftBank Mobile, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Orange, announced HQME at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain on February 14, 2011.
HQME is planned to be submitted to the World Web Web Consortium (W3C) for consideration.
