Call For Speakers Now Open For The 2013 Content Delivery Summit

Now in its fifth year, my special Content Delivery Summit is a one-day conference designed to bring together telecom carriers, service providers, content owners, and industry vendors for a detailed look at CDN platforms for the delivery of video and content acceleration. The Content Delivery Summit (#cdnsummit) is the most focused show in the industry on the topic of CDN and the one all the others try to copy.

The 2013 show will take place on Monday, May 20th at the Hilton hotel in NYC and will include case studies on real-world deployments, demos of new technology platforms and discussions on business model considerations for web acceleration and media delivery. The call for speakers is now open and here’s some of the topic that will be covered at the show:

  • Over-The-Top Video Delivery
  • Dynamic Site Acceleration
  • Transparent Caching
  • Application Acceleration
  • CDN Economics & Business Models
  • CDN Pricing & Volume Data
  • Front-End Optimization
  • Managed/Licensed CDN
  • Analytics & Cloud Intelligence
  • Telco CDN Deployments
  • Mobile Content Acceleration
  • The Business of CDN Federation

If you are interested in speaking at the event, please fill out the speaking request form. I’m looking for moderators who want to lead sessions, stand-alone presenters who can share deployment data, case studies from customers who are implementing various CDN technologies and I will also be selecting a few vendors to demo new products and services being launched around the show.

We get a great mix of speakers and attendees to the show from MSOs, ISPs, Telcos, Carriers and major content owners such as:

  • BT, Telus, Korea Telecom, Vodafone, Netflix, Cablevision, Bell, Google, Comcast, Telefonica, Time Warner Cable, Verizon, Pacnet, AT&T, Global Crossing, Yahoo!, Xbox, Telecom Argentina, Deutsche Telekom, Cox and Orange as well as all of the leading vendors and suppliers in the market including the newest startups.

To help me in creating the program for the Content Delivery Summit, I do dozens of calls with CDN customers and vendors to hear what they think should be covered in the agenda and I reach out to past attendees asking them what additional topics they want to see discussed. If you’d like to be involved in the show, have a customer that is interested in doing a case study, or want to give me feedback on anything pertaining to the CDN industry, please reach out to me. Unlike last year where I didn’t start working on the agenda until January, I will be placing speaking much earlier this year, so DO NOT wait until the submission deadline to submit. I am also looking for some good end-users for potential keynote opportunities.
