By automating capacity planning for IP networks, we can achieve cost reduction, enhanced accuracy, and better scalability. This process requires us to collect data, build predictive models, define optimization objectives, design decision algorithms, and carry out consistent monitoring and adjustment. However, the initial investment is large and the result will still require human oversight.
Live sports have moved to the internet and are now streaming instead of being broadcast. Traditional streaming protocols have a built-in delay that challenges the experience of a live game. Amazon Prime has found a solution by combining a new protocol with a very distributed CDN.
This guide explores the benefits of embedded caching for ISPs and discusses deployment optimization strategies and future trends in CDN technology. Embedded CDNs help reduce network congestion, save costs, and improve user experiences. ISPs must carefully plan their deployment strategies by considering how each of the CDNs distributes content and directs end-users to the caches. They need to know both the CDNs and their network architecture in detail to build a successful solution.
Content delivery networks are an important part of the internet, as they ensure a short path between content and the consumers. The idea of placing CDN caches inside ISPs networks was created early in the days of CDNs. The number of CDNs with this offering is growing and ISPs all over the world take advantage of the idea. This post explains how this works and what to look out for to do it right.
Resiliency is a network’s ability to recover and maintain its performance despite failures or disruptions, and redundancy is the duplication of critical components or functions to ensure continuous operation in case of failure. But how do the two concepts interact? Is doubling up on capacity and devices always needed to keep the service levels up?
