What is the Netskrt Edge Content Delivery Network (eCDN) and why is it needed?
With increasing demand for ultra-high-definition streaming internet video, it makes sense to move content closer to the end user where fronthaul capacity is generally more abundant. The problem is that traditional Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) don’t reach far enough, preventing them from serving locations with constrained bandwidth and statistically small user populations. For example, rail and air passengers traditionally have minimal, if any, access to the streaming content they want to watch. This is where Netskrt eCDN comes in. With advanced cloud analytics and edge caching positioned at the “absolute edge,” the Netskrt eCDN allows users to leverage their existing internet video subscriptions at speeds faster than they get at home.
