Aura Managed CDN provides an operator with content delivery network (CDN) capabilities through an infrastructure that is maintained by Akamai. With it, an operator can deploy a highly scalable, completely turnkey media CDN that leverages the same CDN techniques used by Akamai, but on servers that are dedicated to the network operator's services. Operators can deliver multi-screen video services and large objects, plus offer commercial CDN services, relying on Akamai CDN experts and proven technology for content provisioning, delivery and reporting.

  • 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. For some network operators, implementing a CDN from scratch simply does not make sense, while others need features that go beyond standard bit delivery CDNs. All seek options that are easy to deploy and maintain but still provide the core benefits to drive revenues and network efficiency. Aura Managed CDN Aura Managed CDN is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) CDN suite that provides an operator the ability to optimize their network for content delivery and launch their own video services with a CDN that is dedicated to their network. With this solution, operators can reduce deployment time and upfront costs for an Operator CDN that can deliver multiscreen video services or commercial CDN services by leveraging Akamai CDN experts to maintain the underlying CDN infrastructure. With the Aura Managed CDN operators can create new opportunities without adding complexity or significant capital expenditure. It enables operators to deliver a superior online experience and offers advanced value-added-services available only on the Akamai Intelligent Platform™. Operators can also utilize Akamai Federation to leverage the global Akamai Intelligent Platform™ to provide CDN reach beyond the network footprint.
