On October 15, 2014, Akamai and Juniper announced a joint demonstration of a Elastic Content Delivery Network (CDN) system designed to enable network operators to address network scalability challenges driven by the rapid increase in video traffic. This proof-of-concept demonstration leverages Akamai’s virtualized Aura Licensed CDN (LCDN) software and Juniper' Contrail SDN Controller for software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) to dynamically scale up and down network resources to support content spikes resulting from the broadcast of large events.
