Enhancing Web User Experience with a Content Delivery Network (CDN)

The web as we know it is changing. It’s not just about content. It’s an experience. From video to web to social media, users expect that experience to transcend devices and formats. This creates significant challenges for institutions looking to use the web to promote their brand, provide distance learning, stream video of convocations or video profiles of key faculty to further engage with their constituents. And as their community becomes more international, global reach becomes more imperative.

The modern CDN is more than just about delivering bits. Through integrated value-added services like web content management, video publishing, cloud storage and core delivery/streaming services, CDNs deliver on that “anywhere” experience with a suite of tools powered by a globally-available network. Bell Content Delivery Network is an exclusive partnership between Bell Canada and Limelight Networks that enables organizations to improve their content delivery performance and end user experience without the need to increase infrastructure overhead.

In this session, we will look at web content acceleration and integrated cloud-based workflow services and how educational institutions can utilize these to create solutions to engage with their community to deliver better and more desirable education experiences.
