uStudio Introduces High-Performance WAN Optimization for Enterprise Video
Improves Video Delivery, Viewing Experience for Internal Streams
AUSTIN, Texas(16 Aug 2016)
Video platform leader uStudio Inc. today announced general availability of new high-performance, WAN optimization solutions for internal video streaming. With uStudio, enterprises can now securely stream high-quality, interactive video — both live and video on demand (VOD) — to internal audiences without slowing down the network or limiting access to critical applications.
According to Cisco, increased adoption of advanced video communications in the enterprise will cause business IP traffic to double between 2015 and 2020. As more concurrent users attempt to view or download data-intensive video content, the pressure will be on IT organizations to address video’s impact to the network.
“Today’s corporate networks are simply not prepared for rapid growth in video. As consumer behavior has demonstrated, video usage is dramatically outpacing network capacity,” said Josh Marshall, chief technology officer at uStudio. “uStudio enables IT teams to bridge the video bandwidth gap while offering flexibility that allows customers to maximize existing investments and take advantage of new technologies.”
uStudio’s WAN optimization solutions, combined with flexible platform configuration and a highly customizable player, ease adoption of new video initiatives while helping enterprise IT maintain control over network usage.
uStudio addresses WAN optimization with a variety of technology solutions depending on customer needs:
- Peer-to-peer (P2P): uStudio’s P2P video solution enables concurrent users to share the video data their neighbors have already downloaded – rather than each computer trying to fetch the exact same content.
- Transparent caching: uStudio’s configurable CDN solution can be combined with a transparent caching and file delivery infrastructure to intelligently push live and VOD content to internal networks.
- Multicast: uStudio’s flexible players integrate with any existing plugin-based workflow to take advantage of multicast-friendly environments.
- Hybrid deployments: uStudio supports hybrid deployments using both internal network optimization solutions and cloud-based streaming via CDNs.
Early uStudio customers have improved the efficiency of their video streaming efforts by more than 90 percent. To learn more about uStudio’s WAN optimization solution, visit: https://ustudio.com/video-solutions/wan-optimization-video/
