Verizon Growing Their CDN Services: Hear About It Next Month At The CDN Summit
The day before the Streaming Media East show takes place, I’ve organized a one day summit for Monday May 10th on the Content Delivery industry (www.CDNsummit.com). The summit brings together nearly all of the content delivery vendors, as well as telcos, ISPs and content owners to discuss what’s taking place with the infrastructure of online video. In addition to our keynote by Jim Crowe, CEO of Level 3 I’m also pleased to announce that Doug Pasko who is the Director of Online Media Technology for Verizon will be our second keynote of the day. While Verizon has been pretty quiet talking about their CDN activities, they have a lot going on internally and last week, announced an expanded CDN partner program to draw content onto the Verizon network via direct connections with content owners’ servers at content delivery access points located around the country.
In addition to Level 3 and Verizon, other confirmed speakers include Amazon, AT&T, Ankeena, Yahoo CDN, 3Crowd Technologies, MTV Networks, Conviva, Limelight Networks, CDNetworks, EdgeCast, EPIX, Encoding.com, Adobe, Tata Communications, Highwinds, Ustream and many others still being added. You can see the full agenda here.
It’s not too late to register and readers of my blog can use my personal discount code of DRF1 and attend the summit for only $395.
