Consumers expect instant access to media content on any screen, wherever they are, with the quality that they expect. These demands require an online delivery solution that can address the ever-growing audiences’ demand for higher throughput, faster content access, and an endless array of connected devices.
To help you meet those expectations, the Akamai Intelligent Platform offers unmatched capacity, scale, and geographic reach. These Content Delivery Network (CDN) strengths allow your online business to scale with your audience demands, without constantly worrying about how to stay ahead of that demand.
But today’s CDN must offer more than delivery. As games become larger, and video quality shifts to Ultra High Definition, file sizes and streaming bit rates continue to grow. This is making it harder to upload, store, prepare, protect and deliver this content to all of the connected devices, screen sizes and operating systems, regardless of what network they are on. And unless you have a way to monitor the Quality of Experience (QoE) that your audiences are receiving, you are flying blind. Akamai Media Delivery Solutions includes products that address all of these challenges.
When your success requires a strong, experienced partner to help you stay ahead, Akamai is there with a network and products that are known for high reliability, availability, and performance. In a word, QUALITY.
