Saguna Networks, an innovative provider of RAN-based acceleration and monetization solutions for LTE Networks, Tuesday announced a joint demonstration with Akamai at 4G World/CTIA 2014, showcasing its CODS Open-RAN CDN, a Content Delivery Network (CDN) that operates from within the Mobile Base Station.
The demonstration next week will showcase the solution which brings content closer to the mobile user to improve the mobile Internet user experience and reduce round-trip-time (RTT).
In the demonstration, Akamai’s Content Delivery Network (CDN) is integrated as a server-side application running on the Saguna CODS Open-RAN platform, which operates inside the mobile base station. Using Saguna CODS CDN-Extend, Akamai’s CDN can cache content for delivery as close as possible to mobile users at the mobile network edge.
According to Saguna, this new class of CDNs leverages real-time radio congestion monitoring and proximity to mobile users to deliver superior user experience, new monetization opportunities and improved network economics.
