CDNetworks’ global content delivery network is one of three CDNs chosen as part of Ericsson’s plug-in ecosystem launch. CDNetworks is providing Ericsson with caching, optimization, and acceleration for global content delivery on Ericsson operator networks.
Ericsson has over 1,000 networks in more than 180 countries. As part of Ericsson’s Media Delivery Network (MDN), CDNetworks will help them accelerate content delivery, including video, and potentially monitize the CDN service.
“We have created these partnerships, and pre-integrated these connections to enable operators and content providers to forge even stronger links so that they can innovate and drive new revenue earning and high quality consumer video experiences,” said Ove Anebygd, Vice President and Head of Solution Area Media, Ericsson.
Local and global audiences
With 140 points of presence (PoPs) in 86 cities, including mainland China and Russia, CDNetworks enables operators to reach emerging markets with the same level of service offered to local customers. According to Ericsson, “content providers will be provided with a seamless delivery mechanism for reaching audiences on both a local and global level, opening up new revenue streams. New business models will also be created for operators, giving them the opportunity to generate revenues on top of existing subscriber fees.”
CDNetworks has been serving its enterprise customers with content delivery network services for more than 13 years, and has offices in the U.S., Korea, China, Japan, and the UK.
