They work well. :-)

They've got a fair amount of documentation publicly available describing their CDN network, pushing updates from origin to their Edge servers, Akamai'zed URL format, determining which Edge servers should be returned for a client request, based on geo location, network location, availability and throughput, failover, and so forth.
It's not completely off-topic, but you'd likely do better to ask them directly if you need more info.
