Ericsson Enhances Operator CDN (is Akamai there?)

Ericsson announced it will launch "a new unified content delivery network (CDN) solution that leverages its leadership position in video delivery, optimization and networks .. The new Ericsson Media Delivery Network solution is uniquely designed to unite the delivery of managed and unmanaged content over fixed and mobile networks by leveraging Ericsson's advanced packet core and radio capabilities with converged cache, combined with new management and service exposure layers for intelligent control and business model enablement"

Akamai's name (see "CDN/Cache Announcements: Ericsson Adds Akamai Cache to its [DPI Capable] SSR 8000 Router" - here) is not mentioned in the press release. A question sent to Ericsson about that was not responded by the time of posting this. 

The use cases include ".. Caching of Over-The-Top (OTT) content so that operators can create new revenue streams and content providers can have guaranteed quality of experience to consumers, maximizing operator content sales via the ability to deliver on-demand content as well as linear content and optimizing traffic over multiple CDNs via intelligent CDN selection technology"
