Edge Device Characteristics (EDC)

Akamai sends EDC identifiers to your origin in the HTTP header. They help you optimize and accelerate content by taking into account specific features and capabilities of devices accessing your website.

A good example of this has to do with website visitors’ display screens. The displays on workstations, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets have resolutions, widths, and height specs that vary widely. EDC sends their specs to your origin in headers, and you can use this information for planning or to optimize the way your web pages are displayed.
