Chief Architect Phill Lawson-Shanks to Discuss Network Edge Expansion During the San Francisco Conference 

EdgeConneXHerndon, VA – July 22, 2015EdgeConneX®, specializing in hosting solutions at the edge of the network, announces today that its Chief Architect, Phill Lawson-Shanks, will speak at DatacenterDynamics Internet as part of a panel at 12 PM on Thursday, July 30. The event takes place July 30-31, 2015 at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, California.

Mr. Lawson-Shanks will join key executives from Cisco, CDNetworks, Primary Data and Victorious on a panel discussion titled “Keeping the Video Streaming”, the third presentation within the App>Cloud track. As the Internet grows and evolves, so too does the content it delivers. The proliferation of video streaming is at an all-time high and is steadily climbing. This has created major challenges for network providers, as increased data delivery traffic requires more processing power, storage, bandwidth, and distributed network edge infrastructure to keep up. Mr. Lawson-Shanks will explore video traffic’s exponential growth, and how EdgeConneX is solving the last-mile content delivery challenge that video streaming has created by deploying a new network Edge. Bringing content closer to end-users through its Edge Data Centers®, the organization has more than tripled the amount of video service peering points in the U.S. in less than two years, making content delivery faster and more reliable than ever.

“Identifying and developing the new network Edge is our specialty at EdgeConneX, and we’re facing the challenge of increased video streaming head-on with our Edge Data Centers,” explains Mr. Lawson-Shanks. “I’m excited to share the latest developments that we have made at EdgeConneX, taking the network to new levels, enhancing the end-user experience and providing a stable and reliable platform for continued growth and innovation.”
