Content delivery network architectures are initiatives designed to support the effective delivery of continuous and discrete media to end-users. Mobile devices are now capable of exploiting services such as content delivery, but with the protocols governing the content delivery networks designed for wired networked topologies; an assessment of the impact of mobile devices on the network has never been undertaken. Wireless devices access causes significant issues in the ability of the media transport system to function efficiently or as intended. This paper will highlight the current content delivery architectures available, their level of support for mobile devices and the issues therein.
