UAE telco Du has signed an agreement with Akamai Technologies, the cloud optimisation services provider, to offer secure delivery of e-business services to its business customers.
The agreement will enable Du to offer faster delivery of secure cloud based services such as HD video streaming, application, and site delivery to its business customers via Akamai’s EdgePlatform.

This benefits not only our corporate customers as content providers, but particularly their customers as end-users."
