Edge IP Binding (EIPB) lets you deliver traffic from a small, static set of IP addresses in an Akamai scalable manner. You can implement Edge IP Binding to accomplish the following:
Support zero-rated billing. Add Edge IP Binding if you're looking to offer specific traffic at no cost to end users, or prevent specific delivery from counting against a data cap.
Identify content provider traffic based on the source IP. This helps when you can't perform a deep packet inspection.
Provide a single or a limited number of source IP addresses. This would help if your infrastructure systems are too complex and need a single, or very limited number of source IPs.
Eliminate frequent updates to IP address ranges. This applies if your business support or operations support systems can't handle frequent updates.
Provide simplicity and scale. This can help remove the need for additional domains or additional IPs.
