engagement is more than a buzz word, it’s an imperative. To strengthen employee
engagement, many companies have adopted enterprise video to keep employees informed
and educated.

I’ll let
you in on a little secret…video is one of the most efficient and
cost-effective ways to reach everyone—and it’s growing at an exponential pace. Wainhouse Research’s
2018 Enterprise Streaming End User Survey
found 79% of respondents reported some
use of streaming business video on at least a weekly basis, up six points from
the previous year’s survey.

easy-to-use video platform is a no brainer, but how do you protect
business-critical operations while fulfilling expectations for more frequent
and better-quality streaming video?

uses a massive amount of bandwidth, and most networks aren’t sized to handle
hundreds or thousands of video streams at one time. The network becomes
congested, business-critical applications slow to a snail’s pace, and all of
sudden, quality of experience (QoE) is at risk. 

A little
buffering or latency, and employees will complain, or even worse, stop watching
altogether. So much for keeping employees engaged, informed and educated.

to the Rescue

One way to solve video-induced network
congestion is by using an enterprise content delivery network (eCDN). An eCDN
intelligently routes video traffic to optimize your network without sacrificing
user experience. The most common eCDNs are multicast, video caching and

Because it’s Multicast Monday, let’s talk about
Ramp’s multicasting solution. AltitudeCDN™ Multicast+ is the most efficient
way to stream live video. Instead of sending countless video streams across
your network to reach your audience, it distributes a single stream every
viewer can access—whether you have 5,000 or 500,000 viewers.

Think of it like a TV station. You tune-in to
watch your favorite TV show, and let’s say your partner turns on the same show
in the bedroom, and your kids turn it on in the game room. It doesn’t matter
how many people in the house tune in, you’re all watching the same signal and
getting the same quality of experience (assuming the quality of your TVs is
about the same).

Simply put, multicast uses drastically less
bandwidth to save your network and deliver an uninterrupted, high-quality
viewing experience.

So how can you be sure everyone in your
enterprise is having the best possible viewing experience?
