Licensed CDN

Anyone who wants to be in the CDN business has to make 'the choice': develop, partner or license:

Some telecom operators and broadcasters have tried to develop their own CDN from scratch. It took them many years, millions of dollars and most of these projects were killed. Some projects that did survive have been built with outdated technologies. These homespun CDNs offer no benefit to content owners. Developing your own CDN is high risk, high costs, without any guarantee of technical and commercial success and the time to market is killing.

Some telecom operators have considered to partner with an existing global CDN. They are now learning that this does not help them in a strategic way. Telcos don't want their network to be overtaken by global CDNs who want to put their edge nodes deeper into their network. These telcos lose control over traffic patterns. Global CDNs were never designed for telco usage. They lack the finer granularity and better control that premium content publishers demand. A Global CDN could be a partner for wholesale services, but cannot address a telecom operators requirement for on-net premium delivery such as IPTV, three screens and OTT. Telecom operators want to own and control delivery themselves. It is core.

Jet-Stream is the only vendor in the industry that offers full focus on CDN technology licensing with an open vendor and open integration approach. Because our solution is high performance software, we offer flexible licensing models. We license our unique CDN software and we help with strategy, business, archictecture design, and knowledge transfer so you can deploy and operate your own CDN and so you can support your customers.

A Jet-Stream CDN
You can't turn a global CDN into an on-net CDN. That requires another specialism. With over thirty licensed CDN projects around the globe, Jet-Stream is the market leader for CDNs for carriers, telecom operators, broadcasters and hosting providers. Since 2002 we operate our own successful CDN that is entirely focused on premium media delivery, used by many professional broadcasters. Our CDNs have very low investments and operational costs and are proven successful, with the highest margins in the industry. 

Different models
Our CDN software is the only CDN technology that was designed from the ground up for licensing for telecom operators and content publishers. This means that you don't have to go through reselling, operated CDN, managed CDN and licensed CDN phases. Install and go. We do offer multiple models and our experienced team trains your staff, not just for installation and operation but we also offer commercial support.
