Deutsche Telekom launches Application Delivery Network
New CDN service optimizes web applications and dynamic content delivery
BONN – October 17, 2012 – Deutsche Telekom International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS), the international wholesale arm of Deutsche Telekom AG, has announced the launch of Application Delivery Network. The new service is capable of substantially improving the performance and throughput of web applications and the provision of dynamic content.
Application Delivery Network (ADN), based on the cutting-edge CDN technology of EdgeCast, is a multi-layered, easy-to-use service that combines best practice optimizations with core technology refinements.
Through extensive testing, ADN has proven its efficiency with customized information portals, e-commerce and booking engine applications, social media services, and other online tools all serving content that cannot be cached at the edge.
"Application Delivery Network provides significant improvements in reliability and performance, which means more engagement, more page views, more completed transactions, and more revenue for our customers," says Falk von Bornstaedt, Head of Product Marketing IP-Transit & Peering, International Carrier Sales & Solutions.
ADN also offers “whole-site” delivery implementations by serving both static and dynamic content for cases where the separation of static and dynamic content is not possible or not ideal.
With ADN, ICSS complements its CDN Solution portfolio, which is based on a global footprint. It supports content delivery requirements, be it caching, multi-platform streaming, premium storage, content security and in-depth analytics. Value-added services and the web-based, self-provisioning portal complete the CDN offering.
