REDWOOD CITY, CA: Twin Prime, the California based mFcdnobile data accelerations solutions provider has joined Amazon Partner Network (“APN”) to provide mobile app acceleration services to companies using Amazon’s cloud services including Amazon CloudFront. Content Delivery Networks, being primarily designed for wired networks, fall short to efficiency to address data transfer issues on the wireless last mile, where 90 percent of mobile latency resides. The clients of AWS and CloudFront will have access to Twin Prime's mobile acceleration service via the APN network.

"We are excited to be partnering with Amazon, bringing our service to the millions of companies globally that utilize Amazon’s AWS and CloudFront services," said Kartik Chandrayana, Co-founder and CEO of Twin Prime. "CDNs were built for the wired internet, but mobile phones don't have wires. Twin Prime solves last-mile network latency, where CDNs don't touch," said Mr. Chandrayana. "AWS customers, especially those on CloudFront will now have end-to-end capability to solve their content delivery needs, whether on desktops or on mobile devices." he added.

The wireless link between the tower and the handset is called last mile and is subject to intense diversity ranging from 20k types of mobile devices, 100 plus operating systems and numerous network access methods. Unlike wired systems, it is influenced by volatility, the physical factors between the device and signal source. Claiming to speed up mobile apps by up to 300 percent faster, Twin Prime technology employs machine learning   to create and continually update a heat map of all wireless networks and devices in the world. By scrutiny of network architecture, device model, app work load and other factors like location, time of day, congestion etc. the company execute optimizations in real time to make mobile apps fast and consistent worldwide. Without relying on caching compression or content modification, the Twin Prime enables customers to engage their users by delivering high quality content even over secure protocols like HTTPS.
