Why Should Telcos Build their Own CDN?

A white paper by Skytide presents the case for telco based CDN, and concludes that:

"Telco CDNs have several advantages over traditional CDNs in helping OTT and IPTV providers to deliver a genuinely competitive pay-‐TV service. Among these advantages are:
  • Deeper network caching and last mile delivery that enable them to guarantee better quality of service.
  • Built-‐in cost advantages by virtue of owning the network and not having to lease bandwidth.
  • Close customer relationships that can be further strengthened by providing them with the tools to better understand and manage their content portfolios.
