Signiant Akamai CheckIn Component

Akamai is one of the world-wide largest and most important CDN operator. Akamai is also an important partner for the media industry. Many video on demand platforms are based on Akamai's CDN. Thus a file upload and checkIn to Akamai's CDN is a mandatory last task in file delivery workflows.

This Component for Signiant's Workflow Manger makes use of Akamai's content publishing APIs. It checks a newly uploaded file into the CDN's database. That way the replication throughout the CDN is triggered and the file gets available for streaming and download.
