Content Delivery Network Expansion for CDNetworks
By Stephen Brown | | 0
Content delivery network providers excel at delivering data around the globe at high speeds and high levels of efficiency. But in order to keep up with growing demands from an increasingly globalized world, many CDN providers must consistently upgrade their infrastructure to ensure they provider their customers with the most comprehensive worldwide coverage.
CDNetworks is one of the latest content delivery network providers to announce that they are expanding their CDN in an effort to improve performance and their global footprint. Founded in 2000, CDNetworks are the only global CDN provider to have a comprehensive presence in mainland China, a real bonus for future looking CDN providers. Their network currently consists of over 140 points of presence (PoP) across 91 cities in the world.
Content Delivery Network Branches
The content delivery network provider’s latest phase of expansion has seen them set up a new branch in Singapore. This further cements their ambitions to gain valuable market share I the fast growing Asia-Pacific region and takes their total number of overseas branches to 5, with others located China, the UK, US and Japan.
Speaking of the development, Kim Jongchan, CEO of CDNetworks, said that “success overseas has made us what we are today. We’re now using that experience to enter overseas markets, particularly the Southeast Asian market, which will enable us to take the next step on our growth journey”.
Research has shown that only 25% of Southeast Asians have access to the internet, a figure that is rising exponentially. As the rate of growth in internet companies in the region accelerates, CDNetworks will be well placed to ensure their content delivery network takes advantage of the huge potential in the region.
