PeerApp announced an evolution of its mobile core offerings to bring Internet content acceleration to the edge of mobile networks. The Mobile Edge Computing solution is intended to complement the existing PeerApp mobile core solution by bringing content caching and DNS caching to the radio access network (RAN) to support multiscreen video.

The Mobile Edge Computing solution, powered by Saguna, leverages NFV to bring cloud and virtualization concepts to the RAN to allow applications to run as close as possible to the subscriber.

The Mobile Edge Computing solution is intended to enable mobile operators support video from services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO GO and others on tablets and smartphones without buffering or stalling. The new solution will be showcased at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
