Content delivery network, or CDN, is a distributed network of servers which improve the delivery of content. It helps increase speed by routing content requests to the closest servers, which aids in maximizing bandwidth and speeding up page loads. Optimal routing techniques are chosen depending upon factors such as network traffic, thus preventing bottlenecks. Besides speed, CDN also helps boost overall performance by reducing latency issues to a large extent, thereby enhancing user experience. Propensity to use the internet and associated services is on the rise; in addition, users demand high Quality of Service (QoS) and efficient delivery of content. Since CDN facilitates the fulfillment of these parameters and manages real-time delivery, the market is expected to grow at a healthy rate over the next few years.
In the recent past, there has been an explosion of rich media files and both static and streaming content over the internet. Managing this content using legacy approaches is not cost-effective, and content delivery requests may be lost. Using content delivery networks helps overcome these challenges, which is expected to be another key driving force for the industry. The large number of market entrants and intensifying competition are expected to be a challenge for existing companies operating in the market. A growing number of enterprises are moving data and applications into the cloud; network providers can deploy commercial CDN to provide services to enterprises in order to improve performance. Telco CDN is the deployment of CDN services in a telecommunication service provider’s (TSP) network. This segment is primarily driven by major operators such as AT&T, Verizon, Telefonica, and Orange among others. Solutions such as transparent caching are employed, which creates Telco CDN without agreements with over-the-top players.
North America is expected to continue being the largest market segment in terms of geography, and occupied sizable market share in 2012. Asia Pacific is expected to gain market share in the coming years and grow at a rate much faster than the global average. Some of the major market participants include Amazon, Akamai, CDNetworks, Cisco, EdgeCast, Inisoft, Microsoft, Mirror Image, Symantec, and Verivue among others.
