In order to deliver more speed and bring down latency for content delivery across U.S. and Europe, Universal CDN, a content delivery network provider, reportedly opened edge storage nodes in the cities of New York and Los Angeles.
Rajesh Mishra, chief financial officer of XBT Holding Ltd., of which UCDN is a subsidiary, commented, “Existing tools such as network optimization offer only a partial solution to service providers struggling to keep up with the rapid increase of web-based rich content. In the U.S., 42 percent of Americans regularly stream video content on Internet-enabled mobile and fixed devices, and the volume of global network traffic is projected to quadruple by 2014. Today’s announcement represents our delivering on the promise to continue increasing the speed and quality of CDN services in content-rich regions such as the U.S. and Europe.”
UCDN has installed edge storage nodes in London, Frankfurt and Amsterdam on the European side and the newly installed ones in U.S. became operational from January 1, 2013 onward. Storage nodes in a CDN ease data transfer to local users by storing huge volume of data in the location nearest to them.
The company asserted that intuitive control panel, multiple filtering options, near real-time statistics, custom error pages and limit rate to save bandwidth are some of the advantages its CDN offers to customers. Universal CDNs can also seamlessly handle increased volumes of bandwidth-intensive, time-critical multimedia and e-commerce traffic and at the same time make sure a high quality service is delivered.
Universal CDN claimed its services are easy to setup and it offers around the clock customer support for all customer issues. Its CDNs’ lower cost per bandwidth and zero time maintenance ensures that users keep their focus on issues important to them.
In related news, Universal CDN recently met the world’s need for speed in digital media content delivery. UCDN's private backbone has connections to major Tier 1 providers worldwide and direct exchange with more than 1,000 user networks. The network spans the globe with 12 points of presence (PoPs) embracing three continents: North America, Europe and Asia. Every network point is strategically located in the world's key data interchange. Intuitive mapping technology efficiently routs content from the nearest possible location to the user.
