Ericsson has formed a transparent global content distribution network (G-CDN) ecosystem, called Unified Delivery Network (UDN) in partnership with several leading global service providers including Hutchison, Telstra, AIS, and Vodafone. Content providers Brightcove, DailyMotion, EchoStar, Deluxe, LeTV and QuickPlay, a leading global provider of cloud services for video, have elected to partner with Ericsson in establishing UDN successfully to the market.

The ecosystem addresses the needs of both service providers and content providers by aggregating network capabilities into the public domain, allowing services to be optimized and scaling the delivery of over-the-top (OTT) services and high quality video content. With a content peering partnership, the collective members of the UDN have a full global reach for content delivery and value-add services to keep pace with the number of growing viewers, gamers and data usage with the rise of broadband connectivity and mobility, said Ericsson.

Andrew Kwok, President of International and Carrier Business of Hutchison Telecommunications (Hong Kong) Limited
We are delighted to collaborate with Ericsson to create the UDN for content providers, enabling end users to enjoy an amazing user experience with swift and seamless delivery of video, digital contents and web applications on HGC's unparalleled international platform which is interconnected with numerous mobile operators. 

Per Borgklint, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Support Solutions at Ericsson
The launch of UDN delivers a disruptive new business model that offers a win-win situation for all players involved with traffic delivery. Service providers are given revenue-generating possibilities as they invest in building out their networks and content providers can take advantage of a much more transparent delivery environment.
