Managed and Vendor-based CDN Services for Pay-TV Operators to Generate $175M in 2013
Pay-TV operators have been moving an increasing amount of their content online through TV Everywhere or multiscreen services, as well as seeing an increasing amount of Internet streaming via OTT services like Netflix and Hulu. As a result, cable, IPTV and satellite operators are seeing an increased need to manage what's happening in their networks, and how to deliver premium video more cost effectively and with higher quality. Enter content delivery networks, or CDNs.
CDNs are a system of computers and caches that place copies of content (web pages or audio/video) in various places around a network in order to more effectively and efficiently deliver that content. CDNs can help service providers and content owners by reducing delivery costs, as well as ensuring higher quality delivery of content.
Content delivery networks (CDNs) are a system of computers and caches that place copies of content (web pages or audio/video) in various places around a network in order to more effectively and efficiently deliver that content. CDNs can help service providers and content owners by reducing delivery costs, as well as ensuring higher quality delivery of content.
From the early days of the Internet, websites, media companies and content owners have used CDN providers like Akamai, Limelight and Level 3 to deliver their HTML and audio/video files. But more recently, pay-TV operators are realizing the benefits of CDNs, especially as they are carrying large amounts of OTT video traffic like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and others on their broadband networks.
MRG expects the market for CDN services for pay-TV operators to reach nearly US$175 million in 2013 increasing by a CAGR of 57.5% through 2017. This number relies on the pay-TV subscribers watching multiscreen or OTT services and using CDN services during the forecast period. It includes a breakdown of managed CDNs such as Akamai, Level 3 and Limelight as well as vendor CDN services and software/hardware systems.
This report is focused on how pay-TV operators are implementing CDNs, as a way to help deliver Internet video not just for multiscreen but also for OTT services. It outlines the current market for CDNs, and looks at the top vendors for CDNs, including transparent caching, analytics, and video optimizations.
Included in the report is a breakdown of CDN vendors, revenue forecasts for both vendor-based and managed CDNs, and analyst recommendations on the current market for pay-TV operators using CDNs in their networks.
Key Topics Covered:
Introduction and Definition of Video Content Delivery Networks
