COMCAST Description

In 2014, Comcast debuted their CDN service. With their own CDN in place, Comcast can deliver a better experience to their already existing consumer base. Unique in the CDN landscape, we can label Comcast a B2C CDN service provider.

As the ISP, cable owner and CDN provider, Comcast is able to offer an excellent SLA and potentially lower pricing, when compared to 3rd party CDN providers who do not own the network they operate on.

The Comcast CDN is regional and offers PoPs within the US only. The CDN service is therefore not suited for businesses with a global userbase, unless it is combined with other CDN providers in a multi-CDN setup. Warpcache is a multi-CDN provider that offers the Comcast CDN in combination with others.

TATA COMMUNICATIONS Description

Tata Communications, a company of Indian multinational Tata Group, offers a CDN service with 400 points-of-presence (PoPs) on five continents, in 21 locations. Tata owns and operates an impressive network infrastructure, with their sub-terrestrial and sub-sea network spanning 700,000 kilometers - more than 17 times around the world. According to the company, 24% of the planet’s internet routes are on their network, which grants improved performance and flexibility.

In 2011, Tata Communications acquired BitGravity - a US-based CDN provider founded in 2006. BitGravity. The companies had been in a strategic alliance leading up to the acquisition, and the move was a logical next step for Tata Communications to improve its global CDN offering. Remnants of BitGravity can still be found, such as the Tata Communications CDN support portal.

Tata Communications offers a wide range of CDN features such as live streaming and video-on-demand (VOD), an out-of-the-box online video platform, site acceleration and software delivery. They also provide DDoS and security services, hosting, colocation and transit.

CDN clients of Tata Communications are, or have included NDTV, Quick Heal Technologies, Web18 (part of Network 18) and Nimbus Communications.
