A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a collection of servers strategically and geographically located to cooperatively serve data. The primary function of a CDN is to increase efficiency and speed of download by allowing content to be accessed from the server geographically closest to the end user.  It provides a way to overcome bandwidth, CPU, and processing bottlenecks as popular or often requested data can be  intelligently served to the end user in the most efficient way. 

Stated a little more simply: the closer the CDN server is to where the user is, the faster the user gets the content.
