Israel-based CDN startup Cotendo is about to be sold to Akamai to the tune of $300 million. There has been no comment from either Cotendo or Akamai, with Akamai giving the usual response of "our policy is not to respond to rumors".

Cotendo has 90 employees and lists Google, Facebook, Microsoft and AOL amongst its customers. In addition to a number of VC funds, Cotendo has Citrix and Juniper as shareholders and strategic partners. Cotendo's revenues for 2011 are expected to reach between $20 and $30 million.

One year ago, MIT and Akamai filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Cotendo, shortly after AT&T announced it will use Cotendo's technology.
