RCom Gets Into The CDN Game; Signs With Internap

Reliance Globacom, a division of Reliance Communications, has signed an alliance with Internap (NSDQ: INAP) Network Services to launch a Content Delivery Network. Under the alliance, Internap would set up a ‘point-of-presence’ in India which would be established and managed by Globacom. We had previously covered Tata Communications tying up with BitGravity to launch its own indigenous CDN. Airtel is the only Tier 1 network left that hasn’t signed up with a technology partner to ride on top of it’s last mile. Surely not good for the likes of Akamai (NSDQ: AKAM) and Limelight (NSDQ: LLNW) who are already in midst of a mini price-war in the Indian market. Will be interesting to see what happens when the peer itself becomes the CDN.
