Mobolize Introduces CacheFront Mobile App

July 7, 2014

Mobolize has launched CacheFront Mobile, a new app for Android phones that can reduce the user's mobile data consumption by up to 20 percent.

According to a release, the software, which works with all mobile apps and browsers, is now available for mobile devices utilizing the Android operating system version 4.0 and later. It is available for free in the Google Play Store.

Once installed, CacheFront Mobile learns which mobile apps and web sites are accessed most often by the individual user and automatically establishes dynamic caches to eliminate the needless redelivery of content. Because the solution works entirely on the phone and does not redirect traffic through a cloud-based proxy, it avoids the privacy and latency concerns common with other approaches.

In testing with Ball State University'sApplied Research Institute, Mobolize's approach allowed users to download 20 percent more content, including Facebook and web sites like Instagram, without exhausting monthly data caps and being faced with costly data overages.

"As mobile phones become established as primary computing devices, carriers and consumers alike find themselves confronting 'bandwidth crunch,'" said Dr. Robert Yadon, Professor and Director of the Applied Research Institute at Ball State University. "Cell phone users, understandably, want to avoid overage charges, while carriers seek to maintain the performance of their networks. In our testing, we found that CacheFront Mobile can reduce overall network traffic by a significant amount -- up to 20 percent for some users. By deploying CacheFront Mobile, carriers and consumers both get what they want."
