Video Streaming

Improve video performance

Provide high-quality video with peer-assist delivery that keeps content at the far edge of the network, promoting higher average bitrates and improving rebuffering rates by as much as 60% as bandwidth demand rises.


Rapidly scale to meet demand

Manage traffic spikes and expand your video delivery footprint without investing in new physical infrastructure by leveraging user devices to distribute traffic around the edge, reaching more audiences wherever they are.

Cost Control-Dollar

Optimize delivery costs

Control global bandwidth costs as audience demand rises by implementing peer-to-peer Mesh Delivery with flat-rate pricing that decorrelates delivery costs from bits delivered.
