ZTE and China Mobile activate China’s first commercial Access CDN
1 July 2019, Shenzhen, China - ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, and Zhejiang Branch of China Mobile today announced the activation of the first commercial Access CDN in China, completing the migration of the first users.
By deploying the Access CDN to the OLTs, the upstream bandwidth required by video services can be saved by up to 60 percent and the user latency can be reduced, hence the improvement of user experience.
To address the problem of huge video traffic volume, Zhejiang Branch of China Mobile has adopted ZTE's innovative Light Cloud solution to push the CDN to the OLTs, which is the network node nearest to the users, by loading IT capabilities into the OLTs. The solution reduces access latency, increases download speeds, and enhances service experience. In addition, it saves upstream bandwidth by up to 60 percent, thereby alleviating upstream network bandwidth shortages.
ZTE unveiled its Light Cloud solution in February at Mobile World Congress 2019 and announced the full support of the solution on its flagship optical access platform, TITAN. Zhejiang Branch of China Mobile’s Access CDN is the first application of ZTE’s Light Cloud solution.
Moving forward, ZTE will keep innovating and implementing the TITAN platform to help operators build fully covered and highly utilized broadband networks that offer a premium experience.
