People, increasingly dependent on their various devices, are becoming even more increasingly dependent on voice-activated services like Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri. Tapping into the long-promised convenience and flexibility of hands-free voice computing, these leading voice assistants (and similar technologies and solutions) only stand to expand in their intelligence and popularity as AI does exactly what it’s supposed to do: learn. Juniper Research recently predicted that the number of digital voice assistants in use in the next four years (by 2023) will jump to 8 billion (from 2.5 billion at the end of 2018). Many of these assistants today live on mobile phones and tablets, but the breadth of devices is set to explode: smart TVs, wearable devices, smart speakers and other in-home/smart-home devices will become more significant.
We've already announced that we will take part in the Content Delivery World event in London from November 15-16th.
Content delivery is a much-hyped and important topic - one that we’ve engaged with and developed technologies around for years.
Being ready for anything is a tall order, particularly when it comes to managing the ebb and flow of global internet content delivery. Content delivery networks (CDNs) have long been the go-to for managing internet traffic, but as users demand seamless availability and speed in accessing content from all their devices, one single CDN provider is not always going to be able to guarantee best performance.

With a commercial, third-party CDN, many such key considerations are no longer in your hands.
