Transparent Caching and CDN: What’s Driving the Converged Offering?

Traditionally, managed subscription services have been delivered via CDNs at the Internet edge, while unmanaged over-the-top content is delivered from transparent caches at the access network edge. Recent industry developments suggest that these two formerly separate approaches will become more coordinated, creating a unified delivery infrastructure that will bring both CDN-managed and OTT content to the network edge – improving end user quality and network economics.

At the Content Delivery Summit, taking place Monday, May 14th in NYC, this session will review the trends that are driving this transformation, and explain how these different delivery methods are converging. It will explore the technical and business benefits and challenges for content providers, network operators and consumers. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Moderator: Mark Taylor, VP, Media and IP Services, Level 3
  • Gilad Peleg, VP Marketing, Business Development, Oversi
  • Alan Arolovitch, CTO, PeerApp
  • Anshu Agarwal, Head of Product Management, Content and Media, Juniper Networks
  • Hashem Ebrahimi, VP, Engineering, SuperLumin Networks
