Is CDN the next frontier?

AT&T announced in late June that it is creating a separate division and new services for its Digital Media Solutions operation, and beefing up its funding is just the first salvo in what is likely to be a bigger push by service providers into the content delivery network space.

To date, only Level 3 Communications has made a big content delivery networks (CDNs) push, based on its acquisition of Savvis and its network operation, but analyst David Vorhaus, who just launched Yankee Group’s CDN Scorecard, expects AT&T, BT and Verizon, among others, to enter the space as well — possibly by buying one of the many smaller CDN players that are currently challenging the market giant, Akamai, which commands 70% of the space.
