Apple Launches Content Delivery Network

The company is taking charge of their content with a system of their own

Apple is responsible for delivering a great deal of data to consumers, although they have traditionally relied on third party groups to handle the process. According to Frost & Sullivan, Apple has already worked out their own content delivery network and they are using it now in Europe and the United States.

According to the reports, Apple has already developed a system that is capable of handling ten times the data that they are currently using. This could be an important move since they are preparing to release major software updates this fall, when millions of people will be downloading large files that can take up a lot of data when coming from third parties.

The analyst stated that Apple has already built their own system of hardware controls, but they were trusting other people to deliver their software to customers. Now, they will control the entire process and have what it takes to ensure their customers are always happy.

They also worry about having someone to do the negotiating with ISPs when they are up for a fight, something Netflix has been dealing with recently. With their own content delivery network, they will be able to have an upper hand in convincing providers that they are worth their time.

This might not be noticed by many users, but it should be evident when finding that content coming directly from Apple doesn't have the bugs it does coming from other sources on their iDevices. It may also help convince more people to join the iTunes market that have been skeptical in the past.
