to its platform.

Acquired through the purchase of Netli in March 2007, the Akamai Protocol is a technology component of Akamai's services that supports dynamic application acceleration, such as Dynamic Site Accelerator and Web Application Accelerator.

Chris Schoettle, executive vice-president of Technology and Networks at Akamai, said the protocol would help to boost the performance of dynamic business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) applications."

According to Akamai, dynamic applications such as supply chain management, extranet portals, machine-to-machine web services and software-as-a-service delivery models can be adversely affected by latency issues on a network. Caching is usually not effective.

The Akamai Protocol is designed to address inefficiencies in standard internet protocol such as transmission control protocol (TCP) and hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP).
