This guide explores the benefits of embedded caching for ISPs and discusses deployment optimization strategies and future trends in CDN technology. Embedded CDNs help reduce network congestion, save costs, and improve user experiences. ISPs must carefully plan their deployment strategies by considering how each of the CDNs distributes content and directs end-users to the caches. They need to know both the CDNs and their network architecture in detail to build a successful solution.
Content delivery networks are an important part of the internet, as they ensure a short path between content and the consumers. The idea of placing CDN caches inside ISPs networks was created early in the days of CDNs. The number of CDNs with this offering is growing and ISPs all over the world take advantage of the idea. This post explains how this works and what to look out for to do it right.
Under the waves at the bottom of the Earth’s oceans are almost 1.5 million kilometers of submarine fiber optic cables.
