AT&T launches cloud-based CDN platform
AT&T has announced the launch of a new cloud-based content delivery network (CDN) platform to enable a better user experience for the delivery of digital content.
As the amount of virtual multimedia content on the internet increases, the user demand and expectations for a higher quality of service has seen global telcos invest more in the CDN space. AT&T has pledged to help businesses “quickly engage their important audiences with high quality, rich and sticky website experiences” with its new platform.
The service is expected to be widely available during Q3 2011, and is already available to select customers on a limited basis.
“More and more businesses are relying on video, pictures and animation to get consumers excited about their products and services,” said Sam Farraj, assistant VP of AT&T digital media solutions.
“Our CDN technology not only delivers videos and other attention grabbers at lightning-like speed, but it delivers them efficiently and at low cost,” he added.
