http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vector_directory_number

A vector directory number (VdN) is an extension on an automatic call distributor that directs an incoming call to a "vector"—a user-defined sequence of functions that may be performed, such as routing the call to a destination, giving a busy signal, or playing a recorded message.[1] This number is a "soft" extension number not assigned to an equipment location. VDNs must be set up according to the customer's dial plan and the optional vectoring software must be enabled.

It kind of depends the context its used in - my guess is since you asked about CDN, it would stand for Video Delivery Network

As the expert above me noted it could also stand for vector directory numbers - although I would assume in the case of networks you would be referring to vector defined networks (used with vector directory numbers)
