Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) provide numerous benefits for cacheable
content: reduced delivery cost, improved quality of experience for End Users, and increased robustness of delivery.
For these reasons, they are frequently used for large-scale content delivery. As a result, existing CDN
Providers are scaling up their infrastructure, and many Network Service Providers (NSPs) are deploying their own
CDNs. It is generally desirable that a given content item can be delivered to an End
User regardless of that End User's location or attachment network. This is the
motivation for interconnecting standalone CDNs so they can interoperate as an open content
delivery infrastructure for the end-to-end delivery of content from Content Service Providers
(CSPs) to End Users. However, no standards or open specifications currently exist
to facilitate such CDN Interconnection.
