Liquid Applications for enhancing mobile broadband experience

Nokia Siemens Networks and CDNetworks have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on a set of common objectives around Liquid Applications and operator Content Delivery Networks (CDN). The two companies are committed to taking the next concrete steps to transform the delivery of content from the base station.
The intent of the collaboration is to further enhance Liquid Applications for content acceleration and content personalization, making use of such capabilities as location and referral, as well as awareness of user behavior and real-time network conditions. 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. Mobile broadband customers will benefit from faster loading times and improved latency that contribute to a more responsive service experience.
“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. “Our collaboration with CDNetworks demonstrates our commitment to developing new applications that accelerate content delivery to increase performance and service quality, as well as reducing congestion and transport costs.”
“Mobile operators can enhance the user experience of their subscribers and enjoy cost savings with CDNetworks’ mobile CDN technology. Collaborating with Nokia Siemens Networks, CDNetworks hopes to further advance its innovative mobile acceleration technology that will benefit operators and enterprise customers alike,” said Jongchan Kim, head of Technology at CDNetworks.
At the heart of Liquid Applications is the Radio Applications Cloud Server (RACS), which provides capabilities such as 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. Nokia Siemens Networks also offers professional services for integrating and maintaining the RACS at the operator’s site, while services such as design, planning, optimization and assurance are instrumental in ramping up new applications according to the specific location and business targets and ensuring smooth and secure interworking between all the elements in the solution.
