AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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, and as new video formats such as 4K and 360-video take hold, IT organizations will face mounting pressure 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 gives IT teams effective ways to bridge the video bandwidth gap while empowering 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 video player, ease adoption of new business initiatives such as live video communications and internal training while giving enterprise IT organizations control over network utilization.
Customers using uStudio’s WAN optimization solutions have already delivered significant advantage and network improvements. In one example, a national retailer streaming live video to more than 140,000 employees realized up to 90 percent gains in network efficiency.
uStudio addresses WAN optimization with a variety of technology solutions that accommodate varied network architectures and company needs:
- Peer-to-peer (P2P): uStudio’s P2P video solution enables concurrent users to share the video data their co-workers have already downloaded – rather than each computer trying to fetch the exact same content.
- Transparent caching: uStudio’s transparent caching solution combines its configurable content delivery network (CDN) offering with a file delivery infrastructure to intelligently push live and VOD content to internal networks.
- Multicast: uStudio’s flexible video player framework integrates with any existing plugin-based workflow to take advantage of multicast environments.
- Hybrid deployments: uStudio supports hybrid deployments using both internal network optimization solutions and cloud-based streaming via CDNs.
