ATIS announced that its Cloud Services Forum (CSF) has released the CDN Interconnection Use Case Specification and High Level Requirements (ATIS-0200003) standards document. The standard provides an initial description of content distribution networks (CDNs) and develops interconnection use cases and high-level requirements to support passing content distribution requests between two service providers.
The standard enables CDN interconnection (CDN-I) by providing for common interfaces between providers’ operations systems, back office interfaces, routing equipment, and network interconnections. The CSF’s end-to-end process perspective is designed specifically to improve the efficiency and quality of service delivery to end users. Completed in only three months, this effort demonstrates ATIS’ rapid response to evolving carrier needs and delivers inter-carrier solutions essential to broad adoption of cloud services.
