Ericsson develops unified CDN solution

Swedish firm Ericsson has become the latest telecoms equipment vendor to develop a dedicated content delivery network (CDN) solution, combining some of its key technologies in video delivery, optimisation and networks to address the global consumer shift to broadband mobility.

The new Ericsson Media Delivery Network solution is designed to unite the delivery of managed and unmanaged content over fixed and mobile networks by leveraging Ericsson’s advanced packet core and radio capabilities with converged cache, combined with new management and service exposure layers for intelligent control and business model enablement.

“Yesterday our mobile devices were telephones, today they are everything; our TVs, our banks, our conference rooms,” said Per Borgklint, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Support Solutions at Ericsson.

“The Ericsson Media Delivery Network solution breaks the boundaries of traditional CDN solutions, offering operators a single, intelligent, and agile management platform for superior efficiency, optimisation, velocity of service, and monetization opportunities.”

Ericsson will debut its new CDN solution at the Mobile World Congress event taking place in Barcelona later this month, showing a side-by-side comparison of the performance and capabilities of a standard network and one enhanced by the new Media Delivery Network solution.
