Content Delivery Community

The Content Delivery community comprises both Content Owners and Content Delivery Networks (CDN's), and targets the Internet Access Providers in the NL-ix Last Mile Community to transport content to.

Content Delivery Network (CDN)
A CDN is an infrastructure for efficient mass-distribution of data to clients. Please consult Wikipedia for an extensive description of what a Content Delivery Network (CDN) is.

NL-ix Live!

NL-ix Live! facilitates content distribution over via Multicast. It is currently available in 30+ datacenters as experimental ethernet VLAN for audio and video multicast peering between participating content providers and access providers.

Multicast
This is a technology for simultanious delivery of content to a group of destinations, transporting the data over each network link only once. Check Wikipedia for more info.

NL Routing

For many content owners and CDN's Dutch traffic (to Dutch target group) is a substantial part of their traffic. and for certain content it is, for legal purposes, even required that only Dutch viewers can access the content.

For those parties, especially at large volumes, it is usefull to obtain a routing solution which gives access to the Dutch part of the Internet.

A NL Routing solution offers 100% NL coverage, saves money on transit costs, and is a turn-key solution for Dutch traffic.

Check our routing solutions page for more info on NL Routing, or contact us for advise.

OnePort™ concept
As almost all of our services, the NL-ix Live! and NL Routing services are delivered via the NL-ix OnePort™. This port is the basic product for all NL-ix Peering and Community solutions and can also be used in combination with the NL-ix Metro Ethernet solutions.

By purchasing an NL-ix Port, most of the Peering and Community services become available for free, and/or additional Metro-Ethernet services will be much cheaper. Speeds of 100 Mbit/s, 1.000 Mbit/s and 10 Gbit/s can be provided.
