Earlier today I had a post on Ericsson's new CDN solution (see "Ericsson Enhances Operator CDN (is Akamai there?)" - here). I asked Ericsson few questions about the new solution, and got the following answers:
Q: Is the new solution is based on Akamai’s technology? (see "CDN/Cache Announcements: Ericsson Adds Akamai Cache to its [DPI Capable] SSR 8000 Router" - here)
A: The new solution is based on all Ericsson development and technology, leveraging our capabilities and knowledge in video, networks, especially mobile, and traffic optimisation.
Q: Will you continue to offer Akamai’s solution?
A: We will continue to integrate with Akamai’s global CDN (as well as other 3rd party CDNs) as applicable per customer implementation, as we have done in the past. Existing customers and engagements will be managed on a case-by-case basis, but overall Ericsson will not rely on Akamai technology for it's solution offered to operators to specifically build their own smart, intelligent content-centric networks.
