US telco AT&T has unveiled its new content delivery network (CDN), built by Akamai and aimed at businesses of all sizes in the US.
AT&T’s CDN Service is based on the deployment of Akamai’s CDN infrastructure within AT&T’s network infrastructure, and will enable customers to benefit from more efficient content routing and better delivery of digital content, video and Web applications.
“Our customers require high-performing, secure and reliable content delivery solutions to help them deal with a virtual sea of digital assets like mobile apps, movies, live events and other rich web content,” said Jon Summers, Senior Vice President-Growth Platforms, AT&T Business Solutions.
“Our new CDN solution allows them to manage and deliver content faster and more efficiently to end-users across broadband, mobile, Wi-Fi, and Intranet connections to virtually any device.”
Now that it has launched its domestic CDN offer, two months after forming a global strategic alliance with Akamai, AT&T is working on a similar offer for global customers, benefitting from Akamai’s established Intelligent Platform which spans 81 countries and over 1,100 of the world’s networks.
