ATIS Cloud Services Forum releases CDN Interconnection Specifications

ATIS (Washington, D.C.), a membership organization for telecom industry standards, announced on Tuesday that its Cloud Services Forum (CSF) has released the “CDN Interconnection Use Case Specification and High Level Requirements” standards document. The standard provides an initial description of content distribution networks (CDNs) and develops interconnection use cases and high-level requirements to support passing content distribution requests between two service providers.

The standard enables CDN interconnection by providing for common interfaces between providers’ operations systems, back office interfaces, routing equipment, and network interconnections. The CSF’s end-to-end process perspective is designed to improve the service delivery to end users.
This initial CSF standard is intended to serve as the basis for future efforts, which will examine:

  • the delivery of more complex types of content such as live streaming, video on demand, and peak-hour web interactions involving the use of authorization and authentication procedures;
  • the use of multicast delivery methods for some of these content types; and
  • interaction scenarios in a multi-provider content distribution environment involving a Federated Exchange.

“The standard marks a major step forward in enabling seamless, global content delivery, especially for video, between service providers,” said ATIS President and CEO, Susan Miller.
