Ensure that every string key and value of the json response from the network cache server is a str object.

This method was added mostly because the NetworkcacheClient gets a json response from the server and all textual keys and values after json.loads are unicode objects, which may result in a error later when we try to join the url and the parameters of the package to use the networkcache.
