Are CDNs Effective For Mobile Users?

CDNs are effective for mobile users. Several studies have reported that the visitors requesting content from their mobile devices can easily find a difference of at- least 10% faster page upload on servers with a CDN (Content Delivery Network) in comparison to the response from sites without a CDN. Users on mobile devices expect performance to be at least similar if not better to what they get on their desktops. Mobile acceleration can also be improved by optimizing the locations of POPs (points of presence).

Mobile traffic is increasing which has made it mandatory for mobile websites to be fast and responsive to user requests. Mobile CDNs optimizes this with the Radio Access Network(RAN) acceleration by using the TCP acceleration. It reduces the excessively advanced downloading of video content through video pacing. RAN helps in reducing mobile data traffic through text compression.

CDNs are designed to address several problems like improving global reach, reduce bandwidth costs and primarily the latency rate i.e. the time taken for the host server to respond with delivery of the web pages to the requests of a visitor.
