Motorola in pact with EdgeCast Unite to offer content delivery network solutions

Telecom Lead America: Motorola Mobility said it will
distribute EdgeCast’s content delivery network (CDN) solutions to service
providers worldwide.


As part of the agreement, Motorola becomes a global
distributor and integrator of EdgeCast’s widely deployed CDN platform.
EdgeCast’s CDN platform includes advanced network provisioning, monitoring and
management solutions.


“Motorola is driving the evolution of TV and the
smart, simple connect home. Working with EdgeCast provides us the ability to
offer our customers simple and fast access to a proven CDN environment that
enables the delivery of IP video on-demand and nDVR cloud based services
directly to the multi-device, multi-screen enabled consumer,” said Joe,
senior vice president and general manager, Network Infrastructure Solutions,
Motorola Mobility.


Service providers can leverage the EdgeCast CDN platform
to generate revenue opportunities through IPTV or web content acceleration.


They can generate revenue through reducing network,
peering and backhaul costs by caching at the edge of the network.


Using Motorola’s expertise in Video on Demand (VOD), nDVR
and in-home multi-screen IP video delivery capabilities, combined with
EdgeCast’s global IP CDN solution, service providers can quickly benefit by
accessing a complete and adaptive IP multi-screen solution that expands the
service provider’s revenue opportunities via an integrated VOD, nDVR, IP CDN
and both home and public based IP multi-screen services.


“Our content delivery solution gives powerful
support to Motorola’s strategy of offering a comprehensive IP video based
service delivery platform that starts in the cloud and results in enhanced IP
multiscreen services delivery into the consumer’s home,” said James Segil,
president and co-founder, EdgeCast Networks.


Recently, Motorola Mobility launched its upgraded version of XOOM Tablet called XOOM 2 for the
Brazilian market.
