Digital Media Solutions

content-delivery-networkDMX Technologies' cross-platform video content delivery network is a proven-reliable approach to delivering greater customer satisfaction and increasing sales. The user's proximity to your web server has an impact on response times. Deploying your content across multiple, geographically dispersed servers will make your content load from the user's perspective.

But where should you start?

logo-left-bee-mediasoftA content delivery network (CDN) is a collection of web servers distributed across multiple locations to deliver content more efficiently to its users. The server selected for delivering content to a specific user is typically based on a measure of network proximity. CDN facilitates and optimises the management and delivery of static or streaming content over IP networks, corporate intranets, extranets, and the Internet. It is especially well suited to streaming audio, video and IPTV programming.

Features

  • Automatic server availability sensing with instant user redirection.
  • Enhanced data backup, archiving and storage capacity
  • Less jitter, fewer network peaks and surges, and improved stream quality
  • Allows CDN operators to deliver HD quality content with high QoS (Quality of Service), low costs and low network load
  • Increases content availability and protects against server overload through load balancing, caching and routing optimization

  • Convergence Enabling

Convergence Enabling
