NEW YORK -- EdgeCast, a leading content delivery network known for high-performance site acceleration and Web optimization, will be integrated, along with the recently-acquired upLynk assets, into Verizon Digital Media Services.

Benefiting from the strengths of all three companies, Verizon Digital Media Services now offers a one-stop shop that gives customers a robust combination of speed, reliability and video quality -- whenever and wherever they want. The necessary scale and performance of Verizon’s global backbone network -- combined with a video-optimized platform, EdgeCast’s market-leading CDN capabilities and upLynk’s single adaptive formatting technology – offers Verizon Digital Media Services customers access to powerful video capture and management capabilities as well as global over-the-top delivery abilities for a compelling and high performance solution that is new to the market.

re: acuisitions
will be interesting to see how they integrate and make use of these companies and tie them into their VDMS product (which we haven't seen much of since the big announcement in 2011). Also must tie into Redbox streaming as well, another business not making waves.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
