Company Medianova Verizon Media
Short profile Medianova is originally a Turkey CDN, but in the last few years has grown quickly to become a global player with a strong presence in Europe. Medianova uses modern technologies like their patent pending Dockerized CDN Platform, HTTP/2, BBR and Brotli. The Verizon Media Platform is a division of Verizon. In 2013, Verizon acquired EdgeCast's Content Delivery Network (CDN) along with upLynk's video workflow technology to create a next-generation platform. This platform streamlines the streaming video workflow including encoding, SSAI and delivery, plus accelerates and secures websites and content for broadcasters, retailers and enterprises.
