BEIJING -- Nokia Solutions and Networks has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with ChinaCache to incorporate content delivery network (CDN) technologies and innovations into NSN’s Liquid Applications solution. This enables 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.

The intent of the collaboration is to further enhance Liquid Applications and strengthen ChinaCache’s capabilities 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 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 Greater China region. “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.”

The edge of the network...
I would argue that the "edge of the network" is actually the smartphone (or other connected endpoint device), and so caching there is the only way to truly cache at the very edge of the network.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
