Aura Licensed CDN (LCDN) Product Brief - Licensed suite of Operator CDN solutions to enable next generation IP video services delivered to any device

  1. 1. AKAMAI NETWORK OPERATOR SOLUTIONS: PRODUCT BRIEF Subscriber demand for video is at an all-time high and growing, and consumers expect consistently high service – a fast, secure, reliable online content experience on any device. To feed demand and address the reality of rapidly growing online traffic, network operators are finding that a CDN solution is no longer an option but a requirement to remain competitive. Network operators are challenged to meet consumers’ expectations for consistently high service – a fast, secure, reliable online experience on any device, no matter what content they’re accessing. To compete in the faster forward world, many are finding it advantageous to deploy their own CDNs. Aura Licensed CDN (LCDN) Aura Licensed CDN (LCDN) is a suite of licensed Operator CDN (OCDN) solutions that enable network operators to create new opportunities with a highly scalable media CDN for multiscreen video services, large object delivery and HTTP caching. With the Aura LCDN, operators deliver their own content, as well as online content from Akamai customers and other targeted OTT services, efficiently, all utilizing a common HTTP caching infrastructure. The software-only solution runs on Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) hardware or Virtual Machine (VM) environments. The Aura Licensed CDN can also use the Akamai Federation to leverage the Akamai Intelligent Platform™, providing global CDN reach beyond the operator’s network footprint with a single business agreement.

AKAMAI NETWORK OPERATOR SOLUTIONS: PRODUCT BRIEF • Request Router is a highly scalable, DNS-based content request router that maps user requests to a high-performing CDN node and translates host names from end-user requests into IP addresses of edge caches able to deliver the requested online content. By combining web content server mapping and network topology information it directs client requests to the optimal CDN resource. The Request Router also provides DNS services for the URLs served by the CDN. • Intercept Service provides HTTP traffic intercept and redirect to support caching and offload of OTT content. Requests are intercepted as they are routed to the origin server and clients are sent to a high-performing CDN node for delivering the request. If the CDN site has the content cached, the chosen node returns it to the end-user. If not, it retrieves the content from the parent peer group, caches it, and satisfies the original client request. This component is required to support transparent caching. • Control System is a consolidated, comprehensive portal to manage and report on Aura LCDN, comprising content and system analytics components. It provides operators with detailed real-time reports derived from the traffic delivered by the CDN. The System Analytics tool provides a highly scalable set of processing, storage, and visualization functions that profile a wide range of statistics. Optional components include: оо Object Store — licensed storage software that provides scalable origin services for the OCDN оо Off-net Routing — licensed OCDN software to federate the OCDN with the Akamai Intelligent Platform™ The Akamai Aura LCDN Solution Akamai makes the Internet fast, reliable and secure and has relationships with hundreds of network operators to optimize delivery of Internet services to subscribers. Our comprehensive LCDN solution is built using the best-of-breed principles of web and cloud, managed through the consolidated Control System for visibility and management, and supported by Professional Services experts who get you up and running easily and inspire innovation as your strategies evolve. Developing an Orange CDN service powered by Akamai will allow us to enrich our existing B2B services portfolio and to support our customers’ growth by providing them with new and differentiated web features that improve the end-user experience and ultimately increase customer loyalty. — Giles Prunier, Senior Vice President, Smart Network Program, Orange
