ARRIS Group says it plans to offer Akamai Technologies’ Aura Licensed Content Delivery Network (LCDN) as part of its end-to-end IP video portfolio.
Under the non-exclusive arrangement, ARRIS will integrate Akamai’s LCDN and Aura Object Store into its IP video solutions – such as the ARRIS M3 Media Server, Spectrum CPC, and nDVR. It says this will give operators a variety of choices for streamlining, managing, and scaling digital content delivery. It will also support operators as they adopt multiscreen and mobile delivery platforms.
“This gives an iron-clad guarantee of content delivery – the traffic gets delivered, no matter what,” declared Richard Blatt, Business Development Manager at Akamai.
The new service, agreed at the end of 2014, covers Live and on-demand multiscreen TV. CDN-assisted video-on-demand (VoD). Network-based DVR (nDVR) and Full IP Video.
