Orange is Glad they Chose Akamai for Live Video & Events

This week Orange announced that Dailymotion, one of the biggest video platforms in the world, has chosen Orange Business Services to help optimize live streaming of sports and gaming events for its partners. The media delivery solution implemented by Orange Business Services and Akamai uses an extensive network of servers to accelerate the distribution of video content over the internet - enabling users to watch high-quality live video content online from a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
The solution is tried and true. For the 82nd edition of the "24 Hours of Le Mans" auto race, more than 5.5 million people were able to follow the race live, thanks to Orange Business Services and Akamai.

Tying nicely together, IP&TV News published an interview this week with Orange's Content Delivery Product Manager, Sara Queslati. When asked what distinguishes Orange's CDN technology, Sara answers (in part)... Orange is running the Akamai Aura Lumen CDN technology, offering the possibility of running CDN and Transparent Caching services over a single platform. She goes on to discuss Orange's CDN ambitions, OTT projects, QoS relative to OTT and opportunities for Orange in OTT. You can read the entire interview on IP&TV News' website.

Orange and Akamai have been strategic partners for some time now and it's wonderful to collectively empower the most popular European site, Dailymotion, to deliver improved image quality, faster access and higher download speeds.
