Akamai CEO Paul Sagan First Confirmed Keynote For Streaming Media East Show

We're happy to announce that Paul Sagan, CEO of Akamai is our first confirmed keynote for the Streaming Media East conference and exhibition in May. We will have a total of four keynotes, including major content owners and one large enterprise corporation.

Some will probably say that with all of the new CDNs in the market today, why did we select Akamai for a keynote position? For me, it was an easy decision. For starters, Akamai has never keynoted our show and I think the timing could not be better. While Akamai has been feeling some competitive pressure over their CDN services, they still do more CDN revenue that anyone other vendor in the industry. People still judge the entire CDN space by what Akamai is doing and the trends they are seeing in the market. It is a great opportunity to hear what kind of traffic growth on the Internet Akamai is expecting and an opportunity for them to tell the industry why they think they should still be thought of as the leaders in the CDN industry.
