Edgeware has a long-established specialism in providing private content delivery networks (CDNs) with no buffering, delays or glitches. The company recently commissioned Frost & Sullivan to undertake research into situations where companies should build their own CDNs, and when they should go through commercial companies.
The resulting white paper, entitled Building your own CDN for video delivery: why, when, and how, features a six question checklist on when, and if, content providers should build a private CDN. The white paper can be read in full here.

Edgeware’s CTO talks OTT personalization with Broadcast Tech Magazine.
Broadcasters are learning from VOD providers to better engage with viewers with content suggestions based on viewing data. Netflix and Amazon has a huge advantage over broadcasters whose online service is not their primary product or output: their own delivery network. “This means they can analyse everything that’s delivered to each user,” says Göran Appelquist, CTO of Edgeware.
For broadcasters it makes sense to build their own content delivery network when an average 250,000 viewers watch content on their service for an hour a day. The BBC iPlayer has around 8 millions daily viewers, of which nearly 4 million watch an hour a day. “The BBC has the amount of requests for content that would justify building its own network,” says Appelquist. “It will have complete access to the analytics of its users, letting it compete with the likes of Netflix.”
Edgeware CTO Göran Appelquist discusses overcoming the limitations of generic CDNs
Audiences want to start, stop – even pause and rewind everything they watch. The options available are now so varied they can view TV however – and whenever – they want.
In the latest edition of Rapid TV Everywhere, the monthly publication of Rapid TV News, Edgeware CTO Göran Appelquist explains how broadcasters and OTT operators can address this customer need in a flexible, cost-effective way with a TV CDN.
By implementing your own TV CDN instead of using a general purpose CDN, content owners can deliver more amazing TV services with no buffering, no delays and no glitches.
