Telefónica has deployed Wowza Media Server software as a component in its newly announced multiscreen content delivery network (CDN).
Telefónica operates in 25 countries and its customer base exceeds 295 million globally with a strong foothold in Spain, Europe and Latin America.
Telefónica will rely on Wowza Media Server software to deliver a range of services for Flash and Silverlight capable computers, smartphones, and tablets; iPhone/iPad, Android, and other 3GPP smartphones and tablets; as well as a variety of additional video-capable devices.
"Wowza’s unified approach to media serving enables us to build an infinitely scalable network that meets the needs of our customers to deliver media to the full range of screens and devices," said Fernando Fronza, video and CDN global services director at Telefónica, in a statement.
The Telefónica Global Delivery Service has already deployed more than 40 content delivery nodes in 10 countries, and expects to end the year with nodes in 22 cities with an aggregate capacity of 600 Gbps. Telefónica further plans to increase the capacity of its CDN to more than 2 Tbps by the end of 2012. The Global Delivery Service is currently available in Europe and North America, and also has a presence in Latin America, including Brazil, Argentina, Peru, and Chile.
