CDNs becoming critical to future networks, big data and the Internet

CDN World Summit - The World's Premier CDN Summit

2nd - 4th October 2012, Thistle Marble Arch Hotel, London

Many service providers including Amazon, Microsoft and Netflix are making serious investments in CDN infrastructure. With this in mind, it is of no surprise that the CDN industry is taking the world by storm. Large industry associations are also investing in creating interconnection standards for example IETF, along with their CDNi working group are looking at developing standards for interconnection and distribution of CDN networks globally and ETSI are also looking at developing standards for various federation models.

Netflix’s move to make the hardware and software design of their CDN servers freely available will allow any network to deploy Netflix CDN boxes deep into their network to significantly reduce traffic volumes and improve performance for users.

These types of initiatives will have a large impact on networks in relation to Big Data ensuring the internet remains open for creation of new revenue opportunities. The beauty of CDN architectures is that users can be redirected to an alternate CDN node if the local node is out of service for one reason or another.

Various estimates suggest that CDN networks already deliver over 40% of world’s Internet traffic. On some networks CDN content is now approaching 90% of traffic volumes in peak times. It is crucial, now more than ever, to make decisions and take a leadership role to ensure that CDNs feature high in your business (whether it is Video or Media (Gaming) Content, Online Retail, E-Commerce, Enterprise or any other type of data).

On 2nd – 4th October at the Thistle Marble Arch Hotel in London, the world’s leading CDN providers and telecom networks will come together to speak about their experiences first hand at the CDN World Summit. This is your opportunity to learn about this continuously changing environment and safeguard the prosperity of your business. Book your ticket today at the event that the industry trusts!
