Operator Carrier Exchange (OCX) and Federated Contend Delivery Networks (CDN)

It is arguably in the carriers’ best interest to take control of the video delivery networks

There is a huge opportunity for carriers to connect all their CDNs together.  This will result in a federated Content Delivery Network (CDN). Lately, operators have started to take serious actions towards this concept. They have created a new cooperation called “Operator Carrier Exchange” (OCX). The idea of the OCX is for carriers and telecom service providers to share ideas, develop CDN standards, and allow one another to connect their CDN networks.

Reuters

SHANGHAI/BEIJING (Reuters) - E-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd is an underdog in the global cloud computing industry, but it has one thing going for it: it's Chinese.

Alibaba this week scored a minor deal with China's northeastern port city of Dalian to build a cloud computing center and provide online government services such as bill payment.

The pact is a small part of a growing portfolio of similar cloud services tie-ups between Alibaba and government bodies around China and comes against a backdrop of Beijing's deepening paranoia about foreign technology.
