NSN Base Stations to Support ChinaCache CDN; Is Saguna Involved?


Nokia Solutions and Networks announced it has signed a "Memorandum of Understanding  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".



A year ago I mentioned that NSN is rumored to use Saguna's caching and optimization technology for the very same purpose - caching content at NSN's base stations (see "Rumors: NSN's Liquid Applications Uses Saguna's Technology" - here). The rumors also had it that ".. the integrated solution is already in trials by Vodafone and T-Mobile USA", and NSN said then that it collaborates with SK Telecom on its Liquid Applications (here).

Saguna refused to comment then, as well as now regarding the new CDN application with ChinaCache.  "ChinaCache is a Chinese CDN provider, very much like Akamai but local to China" was the only comment I got. Hypothetically, Saguna's software infrastructure may be used here to support ChinaCache's CDN service. Or not. See the chart below.
