RESEARCH 》 Streaming CDN Types

Streaming CDN Types varies as per the type of the original streaming content you serve in a traditional content (i.e without CDN). And hence it eventually boils down to basic type of streaming content and a CDN to cater each specific type of the same.

On-Demand Video/Audio CDNs: On-demand videos and audio are the stored content which can be rendered/played on-demand by users. As one can understand this can be a free service or sometimes users will pay and subscribe the service. So to cater this you need to get On-demand video/audio CDN subscriptions from a CDN vendor or else you can build your own as a part of your private CDN infrastructure. Since these are stored content in the streaming server, you can get standard video playback control options such as: Play/Resume, Stop, Pause/Freeze, Jump forward, Jump backward, Fast Forward (FF), Slow Down, Reverse, Fast Reverse, Slow Reverse, etc.

Live Video/Audio CDNs: Live streaming, which refers to content delivered live over the Internet, requires a camera for the media, an encoder to digitize the content, a media publisher, and a content delivery network to distribute and deliver the content. Usually in Internet majority of videos are on-demand content. These days people watch increasingly live TV/News/Sports content on-line. So the media channel providers have to do their content delivery of their live feed via Live streaming CDN.

Apart from this there are various advantages in using a CDN within your deployments. To know more about CDN Advantages kindly read the full detailed article HERE.

Are you a Streaming CDN provider? If you are a streaming CDN provider you can publish/showcase your product offerings, features, etc you can offer to your customers. This will guide users world-wide to choose the right CDN to buy/subscribe as per their requirements.

VPN Network Optimization via TOFFEE WAN Optimization ↗
Saturday' 30-May-2020
VPN Networks may degrade network performance due to various packet processing overheads such as encryption and by adding extra network protocol header(s) (such as IPv4/IPv6, IPSec, etc). This may inflate near MTU sized packets and causes excessive packet fragmentation. Here are the few examples of packet processing involved in a VPN (or a VPN like) Tunnel. With TOFFEE you can optimize these packets even before they get processed on to a VPN device. TOFFEE optimizes packet contents (application payload and transport headers) so that these TOFFEE optimized packets when they get processed by VPN devices (or VPN software stack) they may never need further packet fragmentation. Here is a deployment scenario of TOFFEE with VPN devices.
