Publish » Internet Distribution » Internet Distribution » Content delivery networks (CDNs) »

Optimised for Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) streaming, Akamai's flagship product provides a high-quality viewing experience across a broad variety of network types — fixed or mobile — at varying connection speeds. Adaptive Media Delivery provides superior quality, scale and reach. The service securely delivers prepared, pre-segmented HTTP-based Live and On-Demand streaming media, including support for the following video and music formats:
• HTTP Live Streaming (HLS)
• HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS)
• Microsoft Smooth Streaming (MSS)
• Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (MPEG-DASH)

While Adaptive Media Delivery is both workflow and origin storage agnostic, Akamai’s complementary Media Services Live and NetStorage can be combined with Adaptive Media Delivery for an efficient, high-quality streaming media solution.

Key benefits include -
1. Superior video quality and reliability via Akamai’s unique, globally distributed network architecture, which is backed by a 100% Uptime SLA
2. The ability to scale rapidly for large audiences planned or unexpected — by using Akamai's ability to dynamically and intelligently distribute load.
3. Optimise online video playback quality and performance through Akamai's application-aware optimisation for Adaptive Bitrate streaming.
4. Reach audiences on any device with support for a wide range of standard video streaming protocols
5. Get actionable insights into streaming performance and quality of experience
Reliability, Capacity, and Scale:

Service highlights -
1. Deliver high-quality streams globally with a trusted partner that has set benchmarks for performance and reliability at scale. When a streaming event or Over-the-Top (OTT) service must succeed, the world’s most successful brands turn to Akamai’s Adaptive Media Delivery.
2. Quality Through Technology, Innovation, and Experience: Since 1998, Akamai’s CDN market success has supported continuous investment in network capacity and technology innovations, to stay ahead of online audience demand.
3. Proximity — Closeness Counts: Even the highest-quality networks are subject to the Internet’s realities of latency, congestion, and packet loss, which can significantly limit online video quality. Akamai has the most pervasive content delivery network (CDN), which minimises the impact of network congestion for consistent viewing experiences. With more than 240,000 servers in more than 130 countries and within more than 1,700 networks around the world, Akamai remains closer to the audience, for the lowest latency and highest quality.
