Cotendo Announces Mobile Acceleration Suite

Cotendo, which specializes in cloud-based acceleration technologies, introduced a Mobile Acceleration Suite (MAS) to speed up delivery of mobile websites and mobile applications. The solution is especially aimed at reducing latency on mobile devices, which is one of the top revenue killers for content providers. Long page-load times reduce conversions and engagement with applications or sites. The new Cotendo service addresses these latency and page-load performance problems caused by slow or variable mobile network data connectivity rates.

Cotendo's MAS does not require modifications to the origin site, such as creation of separate Web sites or infrastructure dedicated to mobile content. The MAS suite applies optimizations to speed up mobile content delivery at the logic, content and network layers.

Cotendo said these services are available for deployment and are presently operating in numerous customer production environments. Deployments to date have resulted in radical improvements in mobile content delivery performance even for extremely dynamic content that has traditionally choked legacy CDNs and stymied other specialized mobile content delivery offerings.

"While using Cotendo services we've seen up to a 33 percent performance improvement on our site. That's huge because our customers expect instant response when downloading apps to their handsets," said Allan Moger, Operations Manager for GetJar, the world's largest open app and entertainment store for smartphones with 2 billion downloads to date. "Aside from the performance benefits, we chose to use Cotendo services because they understand the importance of the mobile space and are ahead of the curve in improving services for the mobile industry."

Cotendo's Mobile Acceleration Suite also leverages the company's other innovative services for content acceleration including, Dynamic Site Acceleration, CDN Load Balancing, Advanced DNS services, and the unique Cloudlet™ Platform - the first CDN-integrated High Performance Cloud Application Environment.http://www.cotendo.com
