Ericsson and Akamai Technologies have confirmed an exclusive strategic alliance focused on mobile cloud acceleration solutions aimed at improving end-user Internet experiences such as mobile ecommerce, enterprise applications and Internet content.
The companies will jointly develop solutions for the fast-growing market of content and applications delivered to mobile devices. Ericsson and Akamai bring together the power of mobile networks and the cloud to open new business opportunities for both operators and content providers by creating a new business model built around quality of experience and premium services. This is the first time that Akamai’s global delivery network is integrated into mobile networks in this way. Working with Ericsson, the content and applications already being accelerated over the Internet by Akamai will now also be accelerated over mobile broadband, giving a true end-to-end quality of experience.
