Executive Summary - CEO's Perspective
Most telcos and carriers are not expected to offer commercial CDN services, but will likely leverage LCDN/MCDN for internal CDN deployments.
Very few vendors offer a true LCDN/MCDN solution; those who do, provide it as it offers ancillary benefits to their core business. LCDN/MCDN is a small market today, under $M in total revenue with at most, two or three dozen deployments.
LCDN/MCDN offerings are mostly being sold by commercial CDNs, but over time, should be offered by hardware vendors already selling to telcos and carriers.
It won't take long for LCDN/MCDN to go away as a stand-alone offering and instead, be sold as part of a larger solution set.
