Large file delivery on internal systems can sometimes be an issue for businesses. Large files can hog bandwidth and slow down a network when other critical processes are going on, and the largest culprit is enterprise video. For a business to improve its operations and ensure streamlined delivery of files large and small, sometimes it is necessary to invest in network infrastructure.
With an enterprise video platform in particular, network issues can ramp up quickly. Delivery and quality of live webcasting can be affected, and multiple employees utilizing video streaming at the same time can significantly slow down the network for other employees. With video traveling across the normal local area network (LAN), these issues are mostly unavoidable. However, by investing in a high-quality, dedicated enterprise content delivery network (ECDN), a business won’t have to deal with them in the first place.
An ECDN provides a business with a dedicated network for video and large file delivery. This helps optimize workflow and improve overall operations in various ways, from increased productivity to enhanced employee satisfaction due to properly working systems. This is critical for a number of reasons. Firstly, a business should ensure streamlined workflow at all times, and secondly, it helps maximize the benefits of video as well. Happier, more productive employees will be able to get more from video webcasting, and better utilize the information gathered to improve services on an overall basis.
By investing in a dedicated ECDN, a business is not only improving operations but also future-proofing the company. As technology evolves, so will the demands it places on enterprise networks, and a dedicated ECDN will help a business prepare for and adapt to those changes as they come.
