ChinaCache to develop content solutions with NSN

19 March 2014 | Kavit Majithia

Chinese technology company ChinaCache has struck an MoU with Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) to incorporate CDN technologies and innovations into the company’s network.

The partnership will enable content to be delivered directly from the LTE base station, resulting in faster data transfer, in addition to providing what NSN claims is a superior customer experience.

NSN’s Liquid Applications will further be enhanced by ChinaCache’s technology, including improved location capabilities, awareness of user behaviour and real time adaptation to network conditions.

Liquid Applications is designed to enable providers to place content at the edge of the operator’s TD-LTE or FDD-LTE radio network, inside the base station.

NSN claims this will save on bandwidth consumption in the backbone network, reducing content loading times and providing lower latency.

“Liquid Applications is a disruptive innovation that will enable mobile operators to truly differentiate the mobile broadband experience for their subscribers through accelerated content delivery and exciting new applications and services,” said Markus Borchert, president of NSN’s greater China region.

“Co-operating with ChinaCache on the next-generation mobile CDN technology will open up the opportunity for unprecedented subscriber experience while allowing mobile operators to introduce new business models,” he added.

Song Wang, founder, chairman and CEO of ChinaCache said the deployment of 4G in China is extremely aggressive, and NSN’s Liquid Applications will help the company develop the service.

“ChinaCache will be in a position to become a partner of choice for telecoms operators, allowing them to deliver content from the base station to improve transmission efficiency and save costs in backbone network upgrades,” he added.
