Verizon Digital Media Services is a division of Verizon and headquartered in Los Angeles, California. Founded in 2011, VDMS acquired EdgeCast CDN in 2013 and startup upLynk for their streaming video technology. Since then, VDMS has steadily built out the CDN network with new POPs in LATAM, India and the Middle-East and many modern CDN features.
Verizon Digital Media Services identified a smaller number of strategic global locations near primary Internet Exchange Points, and built supercharged points of presence, called SuperPOPs. These SuperPOPs have massive amounts of computing and caching power and are directly connected to all the major backbone networks.
