Scale Video Distribution at the Network Edge

Live webinar, May 23rd, 2018
8:00 AM PT/11:00 AM ET/15:00 GMT

Demand for online video continues to grow dramatically. NBC Olympics delivered over 1.85 billion minutes of live content online during the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games – 4 times more than the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.

This incredible growth of online video consumption presents major challenges to service providers who need to scale the delivery of unprecedented amounts of live video to serve both in-home primary screens as well as the growing number of IP-connected mobile devices. Service providers today are struggling with the costs and complexity of having redundant distribution infrastructure for MPEG2-TS formatted video for TV set-top-boxes and HTTP-adaptive bit rate (ABR) formatted video for mobile devices.

Join us to hear from Cisco experts who will present case studies and approaches for cost reduction through the convergence of video distribution to all ABR headends and clients, and efficient distribution of ABR video to millions of homes and devices.
