Social media is all around us and has fundamentally changed the way many of us communicate--both personally and professionally. Video can make your social media better, and ultimately get more leads to your website. But how best to post, measure, and use to drive traffic to your website?
This paper, which has been jointly developed by Akamai and Wuaki.tv —
an OTT service provider — covers the importance of satisfying viewer
expectations for a broadcast-quality experience by quickly and reliably
streaming video online. It explains why it is challenging to do so and outlines
best practices for online video delivery. It also explores the option of splitting
traffic across multiple content delivery networks (CDNs) versus tightly
integrating video player technology with a single CDN in order to improve
online video delivery in a strategic manner. Finally, the paper shows how
Wuaki.tv chose the latter option and boosted customer retention, customer
referrals, and revenues as a result.
This white paper reveals how extensive deployment of video surveillance places heavy demands on network resources. The mission-critical network must therefore be able to support the high-bandwidth required by video traffic efficiently, with multiple stringent QoS levels.
According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.
Akamai’s Predictive Content Delivery (PCD) technology was developed to help satisfy the growing demand of mobile video. It is designed to optimize the delivery of data-heavy video traffic terminating on mobile devices and provide mobile customers with a video service that exceeds their expectations in the form of high-quality, always-available video with instant startup.

It’s a transformative time in government information technology. Public sector organizations are moving to the cloud. At the same time, seemingly everything that can be virtualized is quickly heading in that direction. Immersive Web applications are enabling next-generation services, including innovative mobile apps that give agency staff members and constituents anytime access to valuable resources. Video seems to be everywhere, with one research firm estimating that video streaming accounts for more than 53 percent of all downstream traffic in North America. In this white paper from the Center for Digital Government (CDG), we break down what every IT leader needs to know about today’s networking to ensure project success.
