LG Uplus trials Nokia Networks’ Intelligent Network Platform in live LTE network

19 Nov 2014

South Korea’s LG Uplus has reportedly completed a three-month long trial of its Intelligent Network Platform (INP), and claiming to have realised significant benefits from the tests of the platform based on Nokia Network’s Liquid Applications, it said it had achieved up to 35% performance gain in content delivery. Further, 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 Nokia’s radio technology, Liquid Applications, and professional services having been used in the trial, CDNetworks also participated in the pilot to evaluate the Liquid Applications’ impact on its commercial CDN service offerings. With LG Uplus saying that the results of the tests will enable it to launch even better personalised services on its 4G network, its vice-president, Technology Development Centre, Jo Changkil, noted: ‘We want to take our customers’ service experience to new levels while providing high quality video contents … With the strategic partnership with Nokia Networks, we will have an edge over the delivery of rich multi-media content and enterprise services. Nokia’s Liquid Applications will create new revenue models outside the traditional telco areas.’
