CDNetworks partners with KDDI to accelerate KDDI’s network with its mobile CDN technology
Seoul, Korea, January 10, 2013 – CDNetworks’ new mobile CDN technology has been adopted by KDDI, the 2nd largest mobile network operator in Japan. CDNetworks mobile CDN technology has been integrated in the core of KDDI au 4G LTE and 3G network after series of quality tests since December last year.
CDNetworks mobile CDN technology enables Mobile Network Operators (MNO) to achieve up to 30% faster mobile content delivery as well as up to 20% reduction in mobile data traffic.
CDNetworks’ mobile CDN technology significantly reduces mobile data traffic which is growing exponentially by the diffusion of smartphone. At the same time, mobile CDN enhances mobile user experience with Radio Access Network (RAN) acceleration; these benefits are realized by the following technologies:
1) Text compression which reduces mobile data traffic without changing content
2) Video pacing which reduces excessive progressive video downloading
3) TCP acceleration which is delicately tuned to fit the mobile operator’s network environment
Mobile Network Operators can enjoy huge CAPEX reduction as well as enhancement of user satisfaction through utilization of CDNetworks’ mobile CDN technology. “KDDI is very excited to implement CDNetworks’ mobile CDN technology. This will serve as a key technology for handling mobile traffic increase,” said Yoshiharu Shimatani, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Technology Sector, KDDI Corporation.
CDNetworks continues to offer advanced content delivery solutions suitable for both mobile and fixed network environments through collaboration with the world’s telecommunications carriers and MNOs in order to increase end-user satisfaction.
