Democratizing content delivery features

The explosive growth of rich media content, applications and the rising expectations of content providers to deliver a highly differentiated "quality of experience" to their customers, requires a fundamental re-think regarding how media delivery networks are architected. Ericsson’s UDN is a global content distribution solution with services that are superior to what typical Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) can provide.

How does UDN work for content providers?

  • UDN gives content owners the best distribution strategy based on their needs; a robust set of delivery services, and the most reliable and fastest network available.
  • Through partnerships that Ericsson has made with global service providers, UDN is able to provide content delivery functionality and other operator-centric capabilities - impossible for other CDNs to offer.
  • UDN provides true end-to-end transparency and control of content, empowering content owners with greater visibility inside the network, and deeper insight into network performance and consumer data.

Token Authentication allows customers to limit content access with a URL token value. This unique token value is embedded in the URL by the customer’s origin website that, in turn, is used by the delivery platform to enforce access rights to the underlying asset.
