Our CDN partner has designed its network for the IPTV of today and tomorrow – a web brimming with rich media, with millions of users who demand a high quality, instant-on experience. Legacy approaches simply wouldn’t do.
Legacy CDN’s took the approach of building thousands of locations populated with very small servers, an approach that made sense when most users surfed small HTML files over a dial-up connection. But the broadband, high fidelity, participatory web has changed all that. Both the supply of live content and the demand for it have exploded.
So we chose a new approach. We identified a smaller number of strategic global locations near primary Internet Exchange Points and built supercharged points of presence we call SuperPoPs. These SuperPoPs have massive amounts of computing and caching power and are directly connected to all the major backbone networks.
The result is a blazing-fast IPTV content delivery network that is purpose-built for the rich-media, large file, broadband web of today – and tomorrow. And that means your content is just milliseconds away from almost every broadband user in the world.
