Akamai Technologies and Verivue announced that the two companies have signed a definitive agreement for Akamai to acquire Verivue in a cash transaction.

The acquisition is expected to complement Akamai's Aura Network Solutions and accelerate Akamai's time to market in providing a comprehensive, licensed content delivery network (CDN) solution for network operators.

According to market research firm IDC, network operators worldwide are looking at ways to leverage on-net CDNs to improve the performance of their own digital cable and IPTV premium services and extend their managed multiscreen offerings.

Operators can position their on-net CDNs and other network resources as optimized on-ramps that content publishers, OTT content aggregators, application developers, and set-top box vendors can use to reach a critical mass of potential viewers and provide a better end-to-end experience for their end users.
