Ericsson redefines the operator CDN

February 13, 2013

At Mobile World Congress, Ericsson will launch a new unified content delivery network (CDN) solution to address the global consumer shift to broadband mobility.

The new Ericsson Media Delivery Network solution is designed to unite the delivery of managed and unmanaged content over fixed and mobile networks by leveraging Ericsson’s packet core and radio capabilities with converged cache, combined with new management and service exposure layers for intelligent control and business model enablement.

Per Borgklint, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Support Solutions, Ericsson said, “Yesterday our mobile devices were telephones, today they are everything; our TVs, our banks, our conference rooms. The recent Ericsson Mobility Report shows that mobile data traffic will grow 12 times by 2018, and this is only the start of the tremendous transformation we will witness. The Ericsson Media Delivery Network solution breaks the boundaries of traditional CDN solutions, offering operators a single, intelligent, and agile management platform for superior efficiency, optimisation, velocity of service, and monetisation opportunities.”
