LG Uplus, Nokia Networks Trial Intelligent Network Platform in LTE network


Korea’s telecommunication operator LG Uplus has completed a three-month long trial of its Intelligent Network Platform (INP). Nokia’s radio technology, Liquid Applications and professional services were used in the trial. CDNetworks also participated in the trial to evaluate the Liquid Applications’ impact on its commercial CDN service offerings.

According to Nokia, significant benefits include: Up to 35% performance gain in content delivery with reduced latency for big objects of 10-30 MB. 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. With these results, LG Uplus will be able to launch even better personalized services on its LTE network.

The LG Uplus INP is currently loaded with a set of Liquid Applications features: Content Caching, which reduces the latency and saves the bandwidth by storing the contents in LTE base station; Video Optimization, to enable congestion-sensitive control over mobile traffic; CDN Integration, to allow CDN service providers to benefit from all the above features by hosting their valued contents on the RACS; Enterprise Zone, to allow enterprises to use LTE for their data connectivity across their campuses.
