CDN Select API: Stepping up the delivery of web content in Africa 


Stepping up the delivery of web content in Africa

Enabling content providers to distribute best quality content with optimal performance across Africa, that is the Orange commitment!

Continuous investment in the deployment of an Africa-wide Content Delivery Network, the development of our network of IP Transit PoPs and ongoing support for an ever-rising IP traffic make this commitment possible.

Integration of Orange CDN Select API, simple as pie

The Orange CDN Select API can be integrated within websites or mobile applications swiftly and simply. It relies on a CDN with a solid and continuously expanding footprint across Africa.

The API mechanism is based on the end-user’s IP address. As soon as the request for specific content is received by the Content Provider’s server, the API will send confirmation that this content can be served from an Orange CDN. Once confirmed, the Content Provider’s server will return the appropriate URL according to the outcome of the API request. This makes the delivery faster and smoother!

From live video streaming to music or application downloading, content can be delivered through the Orange CDN Select API on any device, at home, on the go or at a friend’s place. It ensures that all user expectations are met as content consumption continues to grow exponentially.

And what’s more, Orange experts accompany every Content Provider in their multi-CDN strategy thanks to this API.
