TeliaSonera CDN is aimed at both companies with highly streamed content online, such as media companies, and also enterprises that need fast and secure websites such as e-commerce companies and public authorities.

This partnership with EdgeCast means we can now offer global CDN solutions to our Nordic customer base," said Staffan Göjeryd, VP Product Management at TeliaSonera.
