Top 20 CDN Companies - 2017
The dynamic growth of fast access internet Content Delivery Networks solutions is pushing to reduce page load time and serving site content regardless of proximity to the visitors and their location. A major component of this digital super highway, video streaming, is expected to grow fourfold by 2020, when Cisco predicts 82 percent of all IP traffic will be video. This requires infrastructure to match and thus the CDN holds a vast plethora of potential as the internet’s diving board. Consequently fast web content demands low latency. This factor of latency is a much greater challenge when it comes to mobile internet usage, where by 2020 approximately 30 percent of traffic is expected to come from smartphones.
Mobile content delivery requires a much superior and a more intensive optimization strategy to ensure low latency and higher bandwidth. Therefore while legacy CDNs are slow to react, several innovations are tackling traffic optimization using next-gen WAF and DevOps-friendly CDNs. In addition, with CDNs having started to push into offering Web Application Firewalls (WAF) and bot mitigation, enterprise customers now look to CDNs to manage web security.
The purview for consideration is plain and CIOReview is elated to present the “20 Most Promising CDN Solution Providers - 2017”, to symptomatically isolate and target the unique disruptions in the Content Delivery Network landscape.
