SEOUL -- LG Uplus has completed a three-month long trial of its Intelligent Network Platform (INP), realizing significant benefits: Up to 35% performance gain in content delivery with reduced latency for big objects of 10-30 MB. This means that mobile users save six seconds download time for a software package that usually takes 20 seconds to download. The trial also showed around 90% operating and capital cost saving in the mobile backhaul link, improved throughput, and a secure yet faster access to enterprise networks via LTE.
Nokia’s radio technology, Liquid Applications and professional services* were used in the trial. CDNetworks, a global leader in the CDN space, also participated in the trial to evaluate the Liquid Applications’ impact on its commercial CDN service offerings. With these results, LG Uplus will be able to launch even better personalized services on its LTE network.
"We want to take our customers’ service experience to new levels while providing high quality video contents,” said Jo Changkil, Vice President, Technology Development Center, LG Uplus. “With the strategic partnership with Nokia Networks, we will have an edge over the delivery of rich multi-media content and enterprise services. Nokia’s Liquid Applications will create new revenue models outside the traditional telco areas.”
“The successful trial of content delivery and Enterprise Zone proves the capability of Nokia’s Liquid Applications to redefine the customer experience,” said Dirk Lindemeier, Business Product Manager for Liquid Applications at Nokia Networks. “In conjunction with Nokia’s AppFactory concept, an ecosystem of developers will drive fast application development and deployment, resulting in new services that can be introduced within very short timeframes. With this, LG Uplus can drive network-based service innovation.”
Liquid Applications adds general-purpose computing, content storage, and access to real-time radio and network information, and makes the base station a hub for local service creation and delivery.
The LG Uplus INP is currently loaded with rich Liquid Applications features:
