Internap Enhances Content Delivery Network with High-Quality Video Streaming Features
By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor
Internap Network Services, a global provider of end-to-end Internet business solutions, announced enhancements to its Content Delivery Network or “CDN” solution with the inclusion of new ease-of-use functions and automation of key CDN capabilities.
Officials with Internap (News - Alert) say that the new CDN solution delivers an intelligent video streaming solution that simplifies and automates content creation, management and reporting with the highest quality end user experience.
Delivered with Internap's Performance IP service, the new enhancements ensure optimal video delivery across the Internet.
Video CDNs are increasingly becoming part of marketing strategies and business operations. However, the cost and complexity associated with delivering high-quality content across an increasingly diverse device landscape of PCs, netbooks and mobile phones remain a challenge for organizations.
Today, video usage broadens beyond the user generated content and over-the-top media and entertainment markets and becomes a core enterprise tool for communicating with business-critical audiences such as employees, customers, investors and partners.
It is possible to offer a higher quality experience to those consumers by overcoming issues of network latency, congestion and downtime – all of which are becoming key CDN requirements.
Internap’s CDN leverages the patented Managed Internet Route Optimizer technology which dynamically selects the best path for video traffic across multiple Internet backbones based on network performance characteristics instead of the least number of Internet hops so it can provide organizations with a highly reliable CDN and guaranteed uptime as well as performance-based service level agreements.
