The Akamai NetSession Client (also known as Akamai NetSession Interface) is a type of a peer-to-peer networking technology developed by Akamai Technologies, Inc., a content delivery system company that provides faster downloads of content from various websites. When installed, the NetSession Client is able to deliver various content on demand (from other end users who have the Client installed) using Akamai’s delivery engine and through an exclusive P2P protocol. This gives another layer of content delivery to Akamai’s capabilities and augments it, so the end user who requests content or a file from the Internet can be served not only through Akamai’s servers, but also from the other computers using a NetSession Client.
To make it as simple as possible, it is a good idea to understand how Akamai works. Akamai mirrors the files from its customer’s servers (usually websites), so when the user downloads a file from them they are actually downloading from Akamai’s server instead of the customer’s. Akamai claims that this is faster and more efficient, since it frees up bandwidth and network congestion from the customer’s server, and ensures that the end user (the computer that requests the content) can download from the nearest Akamai server.
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
