Saguna Networks, an innovative provider of Radio Access Network (RAN) application acceleration and mobile content delivery on HSPA and LTE networks, today announced that the company has been nominated for GSMA’s 2012 Annual Global Mobile Awards in the Best Technology Breakthrough category.
The GSMA Best Technology Breakthrough award will recognize the best technology contribution made for increasing mobile usage, expanding the user experience and helping expand business opportunities. The nominees for the Best Technology Breakthrough award will be judged by a panel of Chief Technology Officers (CTOs) from leading mobile operators from around the world.
“New sources of revenue, user experience and infrastructure costs are all high on the agendas of mobile operator executives,” explained Lior Fite, CEO at Saguna Networks. “This important award nomination elevates the significance of our game changing technology for mobile operators to monetize internet content and applications, increase the utilization of existing infrastructure and provide users with unparalleled web browsing experience.”
Saguna Networks is developing a RAN application acceleration solution for optimizing the delivery cost of web content and applications over mobile networks. Saguna Networks’ Content Optimization Delivery System improves the mobile broadband experience without the need for mobile network operators to increase capacity in RAN. By placing popular Internet content at the LTE network edge, Saguna CODS™ reduces repetitive content delivery traffic and costs by approximately 70%, while improving the user experience and service delivery and allowing mobile network operators to offer new Over-the-Top (OTT) revenue generating services.
