The Internet is fast becoming the common infrastructure to allow access to heterogeneous data, with the Content Delivery Network solutions the deployment of innovative, content-based services is easier and more efficient, with the maximum control in allocating site resources for optimal ROI, and enabling new content services that build customer loyalty.
The main components of the iIT-2005 solutions are:
Content Distribution and Management is an essential ingredient for optimization of Web content delivery, proactively distributing content from origin servers to content servers at the edges of the network. Main critical functions include the implementation of content-specific policies across a global network infrastructure.
Wireless Bridge and Portal : enables the content in the right format for mobile and wireless devices. It is aimed to access data out of a backend website (intranet, extranet, internet) and systems (SAP, Siebel, Oracle Applications, …). The Mobile Service Providers may bundle different access types to create a provisioned services: GPRS, GSM, WLAN and IP phone.
Content Routing and Switching : to directs a user request to the optimal resource within a global network based on user-defined policies and to provide a robust front end for Web server farms and cache clusters, performing important functions such as the local and global load balancing user requests across Web server farms or edge device clusters to achieve optimal performance, scalability, and content availability.
Content Edge Delivery and Intelligent Network : to select content from origin servers and deliver specific content to a requesting user. Tightly integrated intelligent network services, such as quality of service (QoS), multicast, virtual private networks (VPNs), and security, are required for successful e-services enablement.
