The Evolution of the Content Delivery Network

Cisco’s keynote at the CDN World Summit (September 28 & 29) explains how CDNs are transforming into the enablers of an all IP network for the delivery of advanced video services to multiple screens, across all platforms -home, mobile, and business- anytime, anywhere. It shows how service providers are uniquely positioned to enable such a network, including addressing the need for a virtualized infrastructure, with intelligence extended throughout for greater efficiency, and better quality of experience for users.
