AT&T Puts Akamai’s Infrastructure to Work

February 13th, 2013 by · 1 Comment

Just ten weeks after allying with Akamai for CDN services, AT&T has released its new capabilities into the wild.  Today they announced that the new services are being offered to their U.S. business clients of all sizes.  

The services they are offering will enable businesses to speed up their websites, more efficiently distribute software across their own enterprise networks, distribute high def video, keep their cloud applications secure, and improve the performance of their e-commerce platforms.

The two companies have clearly moved quickly to embed Akamai technology within the AT&T network.  AT&T has plans to take this beyond the U.S. to the rest of their global network, but that's not ready just yet.

    Rob,
    With Akamai increasing there number of servers in various networks – would there be a point at which most significant traffic and clouds would need to work with Akamai.
    Could all there servers function as a giant P toP. Would most commerce be more secure inside the Akamai platform?
