Ericsson scores major CDN deal with Russia's Rostelcom

Rostelcom, Russia's biggest wireline carrier (28M total subs and 9.5M broadband subs), has deployed what Ericsson (ERIC +0.7%) calls the world's largest carrier-run content delivery network (CDN). The CDN was built using Ericsson's Media Delivery Network CDN platform and related integration services. (PR)

Carrier CDN-building efforts pose a challenge to Akamai (AKAM +0.6%) and Limelight (LLNW). Akamai, which can still boast unmatched global scale for its CDN, is trying to address the threat through its Aura Network Solutions platform. France's Orange signed up to be an Aura customer last year.
