NSN Teams with CDNetworks on Mobile Content Acceleration

Nokia Siemens Networks and CDNetworks announced a partnership around transforming the delivery of content from the base station.

Nokia Siemens Networks said its Liquid Applications fundamentally changes the role of base stations in the mobile network by turning them into local hubs of service creation and delivery. Processing and storage capabilities are provided with integrated IT cloud servers, together with the ability to collect real-time network data such as radio conditions, subscriber location, direction of travel and more. Specifically, NSN's Radio Applications Cloud Server (RACS) provides localized processing, content storage, and access to real-time radio and network information inside the base station. These capabilities facilitate new CDN-based services that can be served directly from the base station.

CDNetworks enables Global Cloud Acceleration for more than 17,500 global websites and cloud services from over 140 PoPs worldwide.

Under this partnership, Nokia Siemens Networks and CDNetworks will together create a set of new technologies that fully deploy these capabilities to drive a step change in the mobile broadband experience and open up new revenue opportunities for operators.

“Liquid Applications, which is one of the three pillars of our Liquid Broadband portfolio, is set to fundamentally change the definition of personalized services. Operators are in a unique position with their deep customer relationships and insight into their customers’ service preferences and usage. This vantage point, combined with the mobile edge computing capabilities of Liquid Applications, will enable them to create new and exciting content, applications and services,” said Dirk Lindemeier, head of Liquid Net at Nokia Siemens Networks.
