MIRROR IMAGE Description

Founded in 1997, Mirror Image Internet is a seasoned service provider with a large portfolio of web and hosting services. The company is principally owned by Xcelera Inc., and is headquartered in Massachusetts, US and has an European sales office in London.

The network map of Mirror Image is not made public on their website, and there is no information on the number of points-of-presence (PoPs). Based on performance comparisons, we think Mirror Image uses the Highwinds network, and add their own intelligence. Note that Mirror Image uses the term “Content Access Point (CAP) facilities” to refer to their PoPs.

Mirror Image Internet hold a variety of patents to protect its core technology. These concern Internet communication, web serving and the distributed selection of content servers.

The company offers features for video streaming and video-on-demand (VOD) through their miPUBLISHER platform. Large file download is also supported. Their control panel ClearVue Control Center includes real-time analytics and the necessary tooling to manage the CDN.

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.
