CDNetworks Becomes a Premier Partner in Ericsson’s Media Delivery Network

As part of Ericsson’s (NASDAQ:ERIC) Media Delivery Network (MDN), CDNetworks is providing caching, optimization, and acceleration for global content delivery on Ericsson operator networks. As a premier integration partner, CDNetworks is one of three CDNs chosen as part of Ericsson’s plug-in ecosystem launch.

“Ericsson is making huge strides in enabling their network operators to provide the best media delivery and mobile experience for consumers,” said John Kang, VP Business Development, CDNetworks. “We are excited to be a part of Ericsson’s MDN ecosystem, providing its customers with a truly global network.”

With 140 points of presence (PoPs) in 86 cities, including mainland China and Russia, CDNetworks enables operators to reach emerging markets with the same level of service offered to local customers. According to Ericsson, “content providers will be provided with a seamless delivery mechanism for reaching audiences on both a local and global level, opening up new revenue streams. New business models will also be created for operators, giving them the opportunity to generate revenues on top of existing subscriber fees.”

Ericsson has over 1,000 networks in more than 180 countries. CDNetworks will help them accelerate content delivery, including video, and potentially monitize the CDN service.

Ove Anebygd, Vice President and Head of Solution Area Media, Ericsson, said: “We have created these partnerships, and pre-integrated these connections to enable operators and content providers to forge even stronger links so that they can innovate and drive new revenue earning and high quality consumer video experiences.”
