Recently, Telx attended and was a sponsor of CDN World Summit held June 25-26 in Las Vegas. CDN World was a great event to meet other professionals from companies such as AT&T, Alcatel Lucent, Akamai, Comcast, Cox, Time Warner Cable, Netflix, Disney ABC, United States Golf Association, 451 Research, and others.
I moderated a panel entitled "Maximizing Delivery and Performance of Premium Digital Media Content" which included panelists from Highwinds, Cedexis, Verizon Digital Media Services, and Telx.
Telx’s SVP of Service Provider Markets, Tony Rossabi, was on the panel and discussed how Telx is working with several CDNs to build an ecosystem that supports high availability, high performance and cost-efficient delivery of Digital Media content.
I kicked off the discussion by presenting the following trends and graphic:
The panel then discussed:
The conversation was very interesting, insightful, and interactive. We fielded a lot of questions from the audience and before we knew it, time was up.
The answer to the question "With online and mobile video being the fastest type of consumer service offered, how will you maximize delivery performance?" is:
1. Start by working with a carrier neutral data center like Telx that enables high connectivity and is located in key markets.
2. Then work with CDN providers and technology partners to promote success in delivering a high Quality of Service (QoS) and high Quality of Experience (QoE).
3. Be sure to also conduct performance measurement and analytics to promote end user engagement and monetization.
