BEIJING, March 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nokia Solutions and Networks and ChinaCache International Holdings Ltd. ("ChinaCache" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:CCIH) today announced that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to incorporate ChinaCache's innovative content delivery network (CDN) technology into NSN's Liquid Applications solution. The collaboration is designed to enable content to be delivered directly from the LTE base station, which translates into faster data throughput and a whole new level of personalization for superior customer experience. ChinaCache is the leading total solutions provider of Internet content and application delivery services in China.
The intent of the collaboration is to further enhance Liquid Applications and expand ChinaCache's competencies in mobile Internet content delivery. Liquid Applications will enable innovative features for ChinaCache's current technology, such as improved location capabilities, awareness of user behavior, and real-time adaptation to network conditions.
"Liquid Applications is a disruptive innovation designed to 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 Greater China region at NSN. "Cooperating with ChinaCache on the next generation of mobile CDN technology will open up the opportunity for unprecedented subscriber experience while allowing mobile operators to introduce new business models."
Liquid Applications enables content providers to place their content at the very edge of the mobile operator's TD-LTE and FDD-LTE radio network, inside the base station. This saves bandwidth consumption in the backbone network, reduces content loading times, and results in significantly lower latency. On top of that, operators will be able to create innovative services for mobile subscribers and offer highly personalized content.
"We are very excited to work with NSN to develop next-generation mobile CDN technology," said Mr. Song Wang, Founder, Chairman and CEO of ChinaCache. "In China, the deployment of 4G networks is extremely aggressive. With next-generation mobile CDN technologies enabled by Liquid Applications, ChinaCache will be in a position to become a partner of choice for telecom operators, allowing them to deliver content from the base station to improve transmission efficiency and save costs in backbone network upgrades."
Liquid Applications recently won a Global TD-LTE Initiative (GTI) Award in the "Innovative Solutions" category at Mobile World Congress 2014. The award is further recognition of NSN's continuous drive for superior mobile broadband experience and commitment to both the TDD and FDD variants of 4G.
