Notably speed up static content: lightning-fast page loading is no longer a novelty
Content Acceleration of CDNetworks is a solution that helps speed up the delivery of your content. It is focused on accelerating static content, such as text, images, background music and webpages. The static content is cached in CDNetworks’ CDN edge PoPs after being fetched from your origin, enabling a nearby content delivery.
CDNetworks owns over 2,800 CDN edge PoPs in over 70 countries and regions. With the rich PoP resources and advanced technologies, your content is always delivered to end users via the optimal edge PoPs of CDNetworks platform. This effectively offloads your origins, speeds up content delivery, enhances website performance, and therefore improves user experience and business income.

How It Works
Content Acceleration mainly accelerates the transmission speed of the middle mile. When data is requested by end users for the first time, CDNetworks will fetch the data from your origin and then deliver it to your users via the optimal PoP decided by the Global Balancing System. Meanwhile, CDNetworks will cache static content in the edge PoPs. If being requested, the cached content will be delivered to your users via the edge PoP, offloading your origin and accelerating data transmission. The architecture is as follows:
