LOS ANGELES -- EdgeCast Networks, the superior, cost-effective rich media content delivery network (CDN), today announced that it has partnered with Gomez, Inc., a leader in web application experience management. EdgeCast will now offer its customers a suite of independent tools to evaluate and measure the availability and performance of its content delivery network.

As a result of the partnership, EdgeCast will immediately offer the Gomez® ExperienceFirstSM platform to existing and potential customers. These services will enable active “real world” monitoring and benchmarking of the EdgeCast CDN from the Gomez ExperienceFirst network of more than 150 globally-located Internet backbone nodes and 40,000 end user desktops at the “last mile”.

“While our existing customers have insight into performance via our industry-leading analytics, our claims of reliability, availability and speed can only take us so far with prospects,” said James Segil, president of EdgeCast Networks. “Performance measurement testing via the Gomez ExperienceFirst platform and network will be especially valuable with prospects by empowering them to fully evaluate our network via an independent third party.”

“As an emerging leader in rich media content delivery, EdgeCast is competing squarely with the incumbents by showing objective measures on how their infrastructure stacks up,” said Tom Meusel, vice president, worldwide channel sales for Gomez. “The confidence that the Gomez ExperienceFirst platform can instill is very beneficial for EdgeCast, its customers and anyone shopping for a CDN.”
