Why do so many companies turn to a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to deliver their online videos, websites, and downloads? It’s simple: The core benefits of a CDN directly improve customer experiences. End-users get the content they want quickly and reliably with better quality, wherever they are located. More satisfied customers help the organization increase revenue and customer loyalty.
CDN adoption is all about wanting to ensure quantity and quality. The quantity of online content delivery is growing rapidly. Internet traffic will nearly triple in the next five years, with mobile growing twice as fast as the fixed internet. At the same time, expectations of quality are higher than ever. More than 60% of people will abandon a video that rebuffers twice, with similar abandon rates for other types of content.
To deliver rising traffic volumes and satisfy higher user expectations, companies are increasingly using CDNs. By 2021, 71% of all global internet traffic will cross a content delivery network, up from 52% in 2016.
