Guide to Selecting the Right eCDN Technology
The global pandemic changed the way we work overnight. Never in the history of enterprise video has a single event led to such rapid and widespread adoption. Video was our business lifeline in the days and weeks after shutdown orders took effect. And it continues to be a critical enabler of business operations with a largely remote workforce.
So, how do you protect your network from being negatively impacted by streaming video? You can pay for a costly network upgrade or limit the quality and volume of video. But the most reliable and cost-effective option is to overlay your network with a software-based enterprise content delivery network (eCDN). An eCDN optimizes the bandwidth consumed by streaming video to eliminate network congestion during live events and video on demand (VOD).
Each type of eCDN has unique strengths and weaknesses, and it is important to choose the right technology for the right business problem.
