CDNetworks’ new mobile CDN technology has been adopted by KDDI, the 2^nd
largest mobile network operator in Japan. CDNetworks mobile CDN technology has
been integrated in the core of KDDI au 4G LTE and 3G network after series of
quality tests since December last year.

CDNetworks mobile CDN technology enables Mobile Network Operators (MNO) to
achieve up to 30% faster mobile content delivery as well as up to 20%
reduction in mobile data traffic.^1

CDNetworks’ mobile CDN technology significantly reduces mobile data traffic
which is growing exponentially by the diffusion of smartphone. At the same
time, mobile CDN enhances mobile user experience with Radio Access Network
(RAN) acceleration; these benefits are realized by the following technologies:

1) Text compression which reduces mobile data traffic without changing content

2) Video pacing which reduces excessive progressive video downloading

3) TCP acceleration which is delicately tuned to fit the mobile operator’s
network environment

Mobile Network Operators can enjoy huge CAPEX reduction as well as enhancement
of user satisfaction through utilization of CDNetworks’ mobile CDN technology.
“KDDI is very excited to implement CDNetworks’ mobile CDN technology. This
will serve as a key technology for handling mobile traffic increase,” said
Yoshiharu Shimatani, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Technology
Sector, KDDI Corporation.

CDNetworks continues to offer advanced content delivery solutions suitable for
both mobile and fixed network environments through collaboration with the
