Swedish telco TeliaSonera has partnered with US firm EdgeCast Networks to bring new site acceleration and Content Delivery Network (CDN) solutions to its business customers in the Nordic markets.
Alcatel-Lucent has posted a big net loss for the first quarter of this year of €353mn, which it puts down largely to a combination of unfavourable product mix and restructuring charges connected with the Performance Program.
US firm Akamai, a leading provider of content delivery network (CDN) services, has formed a strategic partnership with Swiss telco Swisscom focused on the country's growing market for content delivery, Web application acceleration and cloud security services.
The 2012 CDN World Summit was one of the biggest yet, bringing together the customary mix of network operators, manufacturers, traditional CDNs, content owners and other industry players for three-days of presentations, panel discussions and, of course, networking.
A recent report by IHS Screen Digest predicts reveals that the costs of OTT will rise to uncompetitive levels when they need to be scaled up to broadcast volume levels: the reasoning being that traditional broadcasting is delivered via multicasting and that OTT is delivered via unicasting.
This year’s IBC event lacked a big, overarching theme, or new “wow” topic to get journalists, analysts and market-watchers foaming at the mouth. And that’s no bad thing. It’s the sign of a maturing industry, and as a result, the show retained a healthy focus on improving existing products and trying to get the big things – multiscreen, OTT, hybrid – right. Nevertheless, there was plenty on show that highlighted that the market remains miles away from anything resembling certainty.
