Ericsson unveils Smart Cloud Accelerator

The new release accelerates operator return on investment via unified caching technology

By CBR Staff Writer

Communications technology and services provider Ericsson has introduced new Smart Cloud Accelerator application as part of its Network-enabled Cloud concept and it will complement Ericsson’s existing portfolio which include the Mobile Cloud Accelerator (MCA) and the Media Delivery Network (MDN).

MDN is an operator Content Delivery Network (CDN) optimised for video delivery while MCA allows mobile network operators to deliver content with an improved end-to-end quality of service.

The company said that the CDN application accelerates operator return on investment via unified caching technology. It optimises traffic and monetises cloud content for operators, adding Akamai capabilities to Ericsson’s SSR 8000 family of routing gateways.

Ericsson will use unified caching technology from Akamai to provide for dynamic capacity sharing between operators and their CDN customers, as well as over-the-top Internet traffic.

Smart Cloud Accelerator will allow operators to manage and deliver both their own content and that provided by third parties.

Operators can maximise the use of their CDN investment by initially optimising over-the-top traffic and gradually reallocating resources to value-added content as they build up their customer portfolio.
