Akamai augments APAC presence

US firm Akamai, operator of one of the world’s largest Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), is seeking a greater slice of business in the Asia Pacific region by opening offices in Taiwan’s capital city of Taipei, and Melbourne, Australia.

The company already serves over two dozen customers in Taiwan, and operates an office in Sydney. The two new bureaus bring its worldwide total to 36, which together serve many of the world’s best-known brands, including the top 20 global eCommerce websites.

A recent report from Informa Telecoms & Media (publisher of IP&TV News) found that Akamai remains the largest of the traditional CDNs, both in terms of revenues and number of network servers, but added that it faces growing competition, specialisation and consolidation threats.
