LAS VEGAS — For Akamai, the global content delivery network, demand for bandwidth has grown by 60 percent annually and will continue to accelerate with the delivery of high quality files delivered across screens. While demand is rising, Akamai is seeking to level costs for media owners, explains Tom Leighton, CEO and co-founder in this interview with Beet.TV
He explains that the recent acquisition of Octoshape is part of the strategy for managing bandwidth costs.
We spoke at the Akamai booth at the NAB Show in Las Vegas.
