Client Characteristics and OD

This behavior offers options you can use to optimize delivery to requesting Clients.

Client Location

You can use this to select a location that is geographically closest to the Clients accessing content via this property configuration, to optimize the delivery. This is one aspect of what we consider optimization via use case-based provisioning.

Note: If you are unsure of client location, leave this set to “Unknown. If you pick an inappropriate geographic region, it could negatively affect delivery.

Client Characteristics and Mixed Mode Configuration

This is a "use case-based" behavior that's automatically included in the Default Rule and used to optimize delivery for all requests. However, with Mixed Mode Configuration for OD, you can also include it in another rule and apply different match criteria to have separate requests use different client characteristics optimizations.
