Adaptive Acceleration improves HTML page load performance by prepositioning content. When it receives an HTML page request, this behavior augments the response using unintrusive techniques to provide content to the browser as needed. This reduces the load and render time for web pages based on information from navigation and resource timing data.
Adaptive Acceleration uses the following to increase the speed of page loading:
Automatic Preconnect. Allows browsers to anticipate what connections the site needs and establishes those connections ahead of time, but it does not load or request anything. Requires a beacon data source.
Automatic Font Preload. Allows browsers to preload the fonts it will need before it fetches and processes other resources.
Brotli Compression (Beta). Automates compression and delivery of resources within the Akamai CDN. It takes resources or gzip resources from your origin, applies Brotli compression, and then caches and delivers the compressed resources to requesting browsers.
This is an additional behavior you can add to your Ion property. It enhances the standard Resource Optimizer feature, to support the compression of additional file formats and offer other functionality.
It's only available in special circumstances. Talk to your Akamai Technologies, Inc. account team for more details.
Adaptive Acceleration is supported for use with Akamai's Ion product. It requires that you include a few other behaviors in your Ion property, too. We offer a workflow that describes the full process to add it in the Ion user docs.
