Next Generation Enterprise Video Streaming
Today we proudly announce the launch of our brand new ECDN streaming solution Flink Enterprise. We developed Flink Enterprise together with our partner Redlof Media and successfully deployed it for their customers like Siemens and Swiss International Airlines. The technology is based on Strive’s server-side managed P2P technology Flink (short for Fast Link). Flink was mainly used for linear OTT optimization and television transmission. Until now. While this is an excellent use case for WebRTC-based P2P networks, it is not the only scenario in which Flink is applicable. P2P technology is equally useful for ECDN video streaming setups.
A strong and clear corporate culture, shared values and solidarity are the most important drivers of a successful company. The involvement of employees and the communication of corporate values are crucial. This can be achieved by creating strong communication channels for each employee. Examples include live streaming employee meetings or on-demand video workshops. This task is becoming increasingly difficult as large companies often have globally distributed offices.
Why Enterprise Video Streaming Is Hard To Solve
Digitalization is a top priority in almost all large enterprises. To communicate efficiently and interact with their employees, large enterprises need scalable and bandwidth-efficient video streaming solutions. A major problem of such solutions is the company’s network infrastructure. The transmission of high-resolution video data into the buildings of a company with potentially hundreds of employees can lead to severe network congestion. Slowing down all other digital business processes.
Large companies have employees and offices around the world. To connect all these points and deliver high-quality content to every part of it an extensive distribution network is essential. This network must consist of distributed parts around the world to meet the high demands and deliver content simultaneously everywhere.
Time Consuming & Expensive
The only way to build a corporate network suitable for the upcoming task of mass video streaming in businesses is to greatly expand its hardware capabilities and improve its overall organization. An expensive task that poses further challenges for the IT departments, which are already heavily strained by the process of digitization.
Most corporate networks are not designed to process large amounts of video data simultaneously. When ingesting high definition video content, company networks get easily overloaded. This significantly reduces user experience and can slowdown key business processes.
