CDS 2015: Telstra Offers Ericsson's CDN as Fully-Managed Service
Telstra and Ericsson will present a joint session this afternoon on hybrid delivery methods at the 2015 Content Delivery Summit in New York City, where they will announce that Telstra has chosen Ericsson's Media Delivery Network solution as a fully-managed CDN service.
Citing a worldwide growing demand for streaming video, Telstra will become the first operator to deploy Ericsson's network as a service. Ericsson notes that its Media Delivery Network solution lets operators efficiently delivery content to the edge of both fixed and wireless networks. In this hybrid offering, it will work with network technologies that include LTE broadcast to efficiently stream video to a variety of platforms and devices.
“We have specifically designed all parts of our Media Delivery Network solution to allow operators to assume an even more active role in the evolving media value chain, enabling them to more readily extend value into new collaborative and media-centric services," says Ove Anebygd, Ericsson's vice president and head of solution area media. "We will work collaboratively with Telstra to effectively leverage both the Media Delivery Network solution and their core network functionality to develop strategic content delivery and optimization services, supporting the growth of Telstra’s media business.”
The CDS session will discuss the Ericsson/Telstra partnership, and examine other hybrid delivery methods.
