Video in the enterprise is here to stay and growing rapidly. Business leaders and employees alike are using video communication to improve efficiency and save on travel costs, but there is risk with streaming video over your corporate network. They want video. You get it.
You want to embrace the innovation in communication, but not at the expense of your network, security or scarce IT resources and without spending millions of dollars. We get it.
In large distributed businesses, it becomes very costly and impractical to have sufficient bandwidth at the edge of your network for video streaming. Kontiki overcomes the major challenges of streaming video to large numbers of users regardless of their location or available bandwidth. The solution is completely cloud-based and utilizes your existing network infrastructure—no hardware caching appliances to deploy and manage, and no streaming servers to distribute geographically.
To ensure optimal bandwidth utilization throughout a widely distributed enterprise network, Kontiki’s Enterprise Video Platform uses our cloud-based Enterprise Content Delivery Network (ECDN). Kontiki is a centrally-managed enterprise video delivery platform, with permanent seed servers running in the cloud and an optional lightweight software client running on each user’s PC. The combination of Kontiki’s software client and cloud-based server infrastructure provides an enterprise with a scalable, secure, fault tolerant and highly efficient solution to stream video with 100% reach across your global corporate network, enabling every employee, regardless of their location or device, to experience high quality video viewing.
Kontiki’s patented technology is network-efficient with only one “copy” of a video stream or file traversing the WAN to each office. Our centralized directory service maintains a virtual network map of all available content within each LAN, and when a video stream is requested, our solution arranges communications between peers (acting as servers) and requesters that are topologically close to each other. This peer-assisted delivery method overcomes many of the problems associated with traditional on-demand and live video streaming methods by moving the load off of the bandwidth constrained Wide Area Network (WAN) and onto the Local Area Network (LAN). In addition, IT has complete visibility and control of all streaming video traffic and viewership.
Due to its innovative architecture, the Kontiki service not only becomes more efficient as more people use it, it is also highly reliable with a redundant, fault-tolerant architecture which employs multiple levels of failover and automatic retry of video content delivery whenever necessary.
Kontiki’s ECDN is in use by over 1.5 million enterprise users today. It will work on YOUR network, is simple to deploy and maintain, and delivers unsurpassed security. With over 100 million videos streamed to users in over 170 countries annually, Kontiki has earned the trust of some of the world’s largest companies.
