Yesterday (on May 2, 2012), EdgeCast Networks, the world’s fastest and most reliable Content Delivery Network services provider, announced that its OpenCDN Federation platform, which is the Company’s suite of managed CDN offering is now out-of-Beta and is servicing production traffic between independent CDN operators around the globe.
The OpenCDN Federation from EdgeCast Networks, allows the network operators to provide PoP services and caching services, without having the need to install infrastructure in all the places by leveraging and trading bandwidth and storage with other providers. EdgeCast Networks has also patented a significant part of the CDN interconnection intellectual property and had announced the Licensed CDN program early this year. Moreover, OpenCDN is aimed at allowing the network operators to create and sell their CDN offerings without the need to create software, by leveraging the proven and stable technology from EdgeCast Networks.
At its end, EdgeCast Networks mentioned that it was happy with OpenCDN and CDN Federation, and as of now the providers include a large, tier-1 provider in North America and Pacnet in Asia among other participants.
