A New Content-Delivery Framework From Cisco

Cisco Systems is launching a broad content-delivery-network architecture that is both delivery framework and a gaggle of 11 products. The architecture is aimed at service providers, but can also be tailored for big companies contemplating their own content delivery.

As part of the framework, Cisco is grouping several new products into five segments: content distribution and management, content routing, content-edge delivery, content switching, and intelligent-network services. Customers can buy a complete package or mix and match components.

Cisco is aiming at Internet service providers, content deliverers, Web and E-commerce companies, and application service providers, although company executives say the framework might be of interest to large companies as they set up E-commerce, distance learning and streaming media networks.

The products could speed the return on investment for distance-learning and streaming-multimedia services for big companies, enabling them to set up their own distribution networks relatively easily and less expensively. For service providers, the architecture offers unified products drawn from across several disparate product lines. This should help them create and sell better-performing content services at a lower price. The distribution and management products include the CDM 4670 ($124,995), a provisioning-and-management appliance for large service-provider installations; the CDM 4650 ($94,995), for smaller providers or enterprises; the CR 4450 and 4400 ($74,995 and $24,995, respectively), for routing; and the Catalyst 4840G ($29,995), a content switch
