BOSTON, MA, January 15, 2018 – Ramp, the leading provider of next-generation enterprise video delivery solutions for large enterprises, closed 2017 releasing the latest version of AltitudeCDN™, the company’s flagship suite of software solutions for optimizing the distribution of streaming video behind the corporate firewall. Ramp’s year was largely marked by validation of AltitudeCDN as the first enterprise content delivery network (eCDN) to qualify as common enterprise streaming infrastructure.
With the newest release of AltitudeCDN, Ramp is Citrix Ready for XenDesktop and XenApp environments adding to Ramp’s growing list of verified technology deployments. Organizations using Citrix virtualization solutions can ensure fast, reliable delivery of enterprise video directly to users’ endpoint machines while minimizing bandwidth consumption across the network and through the firewalls. At the annual Ignite conference in 2017, Microsoft re-verified the compatibility of AltitudeCDN with Microsoft Stream and Skype Meeting Broadcast. And in October, THEOplayer also announced verified compatibility of AltitudeCDN with the Universal Video Player ensuring seamless delivery and playback of streaming video inside the enterprise.
Throughout the year, a notable group of leading enterprise streaming platform providers chose to integrate AltitudeCDN into their own solutions to make video delivery behind the firewall a streamlined process for their customers. IBM Cloud Video, West Unified Communications and Sonic Foundry (Mediasite) integrated Multicast+ as the chosen multicast distribution option for their enterprise video platforms. Brightcove, TalkPoint, PGi (iMeetLive), ReadyTalk (Webcasting), LogMeIn (GoToWebcast) and Cisco (Webcast) all offer tight integration with the full AltitudeCDN suite of delivery solutions, OmniCache and Multicast+, allowing distribution to be handled through their familiar management interfaces. MediaPlatform, Sherpa Digital Media and movingimage together round out Ramp’s ecosystem of partners with technology integrations.
“Video is a critical enabler of everyday business operations as organizations increasingly use it for vital and necessary communications. With nearly 75% of organizations using multiple enterprise streaming platforms to serve their business needs, enabling the network infrastructure to support and optimize the distribution of video and HTLM5 content from all the streaming platforms in use is the only manageable and affordable way IT departments can reliably deliver video Quality of Experience to the entire workforce,” said Tom Racca, CEO at Ramp. “Ramp is committed to be the industry’s dedicated provider of common enterprise streaming infrastructure, ensuring our solutions function cohesively with other solutions in enterprise environments, are simple to deploy and maintain, and are designed to scale for future growth.”
Early in 2017, Ramp divested two lines of business from the portfolio to focus exclusively on AltitudeCDN and solving video delivery problems inside the enterprise. Since then, Ramp’s business has more than tripled in 2017 with the help of their ecosystem of partners which has more than doubled. Nearly 50% of the company’s customers are on the Fortune list, 25% in the Fortune 100, and hail from across all major industries, including retail, health care, manufacturing, technology, finance and consumer goods. Ramp’s success with AltitudeCDN demonstrates to IT organizations they can confidently standardize on a single delivery infrastructure for enterprise video while allowing stakeholders across the business to select the best streaming solutions to support a diverse set of communications requirements.
The latest release of AltitudeCDN is generally available now and is Citrix Ready. To learn more visit rampecdn.com.
