Areas of Application of Content Delivery Networks

In the media, CDNs significantly improve the efficiency of streaming content by rapidly providing the new content to end-users.

FREMONT, CA: Content delivery networks accounts for a significant share of content delivery through websites and networks worldwide. The material available on today's websites contains a range of formats such as text, scripts, records, images, software, media files, live streaming media and on-demand streaming media, and so on. Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) are installed in data centers to provide such complex content to consumers across the globe effectively. CDNs accelerate the efficiency of the website and give various advantages to customers and the network infrastructure.

The advantages of CDNs are highlighted by exploring their use in a few real-time application fields. Few common areas of implementation include:

E-Commerce: E-Commerce businesses use CDNs to boost their website efficiency and make their goods accessible online. According to one firm, CDN offers 100 percent uptime for e-commerce sites, contributing to better global website efficiency. Continuous uptime allows businesses to retain existing clients, leverage potential customers for their goods, and explore new opportunities to optimize their company results.

Media and Advertising: In the media, CDNs significantly improve the efficiency of streaming content by rapidly providing the new content to end-users. We can quickly see today that there is an increasing market for online content and real-time audio/video and other media streaming applications. This market is leveraged by media, advertisers, and digital content service providers by effectively offering high-quality content to consumers. CDNs accelerate the streaming of video material such as news breaks, movies, music, video gaming, and multimedia games in several formats. The content is made accessible from the data center that is closest to the location of the customer.

Business Websites: CDNs accelerate engagement between customers and websites, which is essential for corporate companies. Speed is an important parameter and rating factor in websites. If the user is far from the website, the web pages would be loaded slowly. CDNs solve this issue by delivering the requested content to the customer from the nearest CDN server to ensure the fastest possible load times, thereby optimizing the delivery process.
