Use Case-based Edge Mapping

If you're using Adaptive Media Delivery (AMD) or Download Delivery, use Use Case-based Edge Mapping (UCEM) to set up an edge hostname to better deliver content for your specific use case.

Currently, when setting up an edge hostname, specific "edge maps" are used, based on multiple factors:

  • Delivery network.

  • Product.

  • IP version (IPv4 only, or dual stack, IPv4 and IPv6).

The edge map used is best suited to deliver your content based on how you apply these settings. Now, if you're using AMD or Download Delivery, you can select a specific "use case" to additionally aid in delivering that content.

What you can do with AMD

You can optimize delivery of either live or on demand content, as well as set up delivery of both from a single property configuration. In the past, you had to create two separate configurations for each format, and you had to use separate edge hostnames to deliver them.

Complete details on this are offered in How to implement Use Case-based Edge Mapping in the Adaptive Media Delivery user documentation.

What you can do with Download Delivery

You can configure an edge hostname to use an optimal edge map for the delivery of large file content via foreground downloads, or via standard (background) download. (Requests to this edge hostname will use this optimal map to expedite delivery for the specified download type.)

Complete details on this are offered in How to implement Use Case-based Edge Mapping in the Download Deliver user documentation.

🚧

Do you also have the Edge IP Binding (EIPB) feature on your contract? If so, you cannot apply both EIPB and UCEM in the same edge hostname.
