Technology to Enable New-Generation Mobile Access to Cloud-Based Services and Rich Media Content
Dramatically Improving Quality of Experience for Smartphone Users and Significantly Reducing Backhaul Bandwidth Requirements for Mobile Operators
Access to rich media and cloud-based services is shifting from traditional personal computers connected to fixed lines, to new-generation mobile devices connected to mobile networks. For this transition to work effectively, content needs to be moved more logically across networks. The strategic partnership between
1. Data, most notably rich media content and data relevant to particular end-users, is pushed to and is available close to end-users;
2. The caching of content is application-based. Each application has a logical position on each layer of the wireless network;
3. Data, transmitted across a link, is never transmitted more than once;
4. Delivery of access to streaming video and TV-based content is optimized and as efficient as possible.
The result is a dramatic improvement in Quality of Experience (QoE) for end users, which will underwrite the successful transition to full mobility. There will also be a measurable reduction in transmission costs and a reduction in capital expenditure for mobile network operators. The companies have also agreed to cooperate commercially by introducing each other's broader portfolio of products, services and solutions to their partners and customers.
