Frost & Sullivan analyst Dan Rayburn think Apple will increase the functionality of their own CDN network , but it is unclear what the background of the system will choose . Currently Apple uses Akamai and Level 3 companies deal with iTunes, App Store and iCloud content distribution work . Apple has a growing number of data centers , only some wasteful to store user data , so increased content distribution can play better data center capabilities.

After the launch of iTunes and iCloud , Apple controls the data and services , but you must outsource content distribution , allowing other companies responsible for the data transfer to the user. There are already millions of users to download applications , music, TV shows and movies , which also includes online viewing through Apple TV users to ensure that all users high-speed access is a top priority .

Of course , Rayburn had predicted five years ago that Apple plans to build their own CDN network , but has not been achieved. But now Apple has three data center nearing completion , and the rumors that Apple will launch its own television service in the future, so now launched their own CDN services can enhance a good user experience, ensuring network quality .

Its purpose is to enable users to get close to the desired content , Internet network congestion to resolve the situation , improve the response speed of the user to access the site.
