Vimond Teams Up With Akamai to Offer Single Source for Content Management and Delivery

Vimond Will Become a NetAlliance Partner and Resell Akamai Distribution Services Along With the Vimond Online Video Platform
Bergen, Norway(4/11/2012) -

 Vimond Media Solutions today announced a partnership with Akamai - a leading cloud platform for helping enterprises provide secure, high-performing user experiences on any device, anywhere - that will allow Vimond to bundle Akamai's media distribution services with its own online video platform. The partnership means Vimond can offer broadcasters and service providers a single source for designing, deploying, and supporting over-the-top (OTT) services.

"Because of our deep competence and experience launching high-quality OTT services, many of our customers often ask us for assistance in selecting and commissioning their video distribution infrastructure," said Helge Høibraaten, CEO of Vimond. "This partnership is a natural extension of what is already a good collaboration with Akamai, the market leader in securely delivering high-quality content to a variety of devices and platforms on a global scale."

Vimond is now a member of Akamai's NetAlliance Partner Program, which recognizes companies whose products or services focus on assisting customers in managing the delivery of information and applications over the Internet. 

The Akamai-Vimond NetAlliance Partnership will benefit customers by defragmenting the often complex ecosystem of solutions needed to deploy OTT services. Instead of having to buy distribution services from Akamai, video publishing tools from Vimond, and other services from a third party, a customer can get this range of products and professional services directly from Vimond.

"Vimond has been a valued direct Akamai customer for years, so harnessing the company's expertise as part of our broader digital media ecosystem of partners was a natural next step," said David Keane, director of channel sales, EMEA, at Akamai. "The value the company brings to our NetAlliance Program is strong and will benefit a great number of global customers."
