TOKYO, JAPAN – 20 April 2017 –
Kollective, a leading software-defined enterprise content delivery network company, today announces a new partnership with Japanese video streaming specialist J-Stream. The agreement allows J-Stream to offer Kollective’s Software-Defined Enterprise Content Deliver Network (SD ECDN) to the Japanese market, enabling large-scale, high-performance video content delivery without the need for extra bandwidth or incremental hardware investment.
A pioneer in the delivery of video streaming services in Japan, J-Stream provides a one-stop-shop service for corporate clients, from the production and operation of websites to the planning and production of high quality streaming content. By incorporating Kollective’s world-leading SD ECDN into its proposition, J-Stream can provide best-in-class enterprise video services without impacting Japan’s overburdened networks.
The Kollective ECDN overcomes the increasingly common issue of rising traffic volumes on Japan’s large enterprise networks by enabling content to be delivered using limited bandwidth. A software-defined overlay on top of the existing network orchestrates the distribution of content across the network, with delivery that can scale to tens of thousands of users without requiring network upgrades or investment in additional hardware.
Mayumi Hayasaka, Corporate Officer of CDN & Video Platform Business at J-Stream said: “Demand for live and on-demand video services to enhance corporate communication is growing in Japan, but network issues plague many of the country’s biggest enterprises. Our partnership with Kollective removes these challenges, enabling J-Stream to bring state-of-the-art technology and a proven track record in the enterprise space to optimise the video distribution environment for maximum scale and performance.”
Dan Vetras, CEO at Kollective, commented, “As the Kollective brand name continues to grow around the world, our partnership with J-Stream represents a significant opportunity to expand into the Japanese market. J-Stream reflects our commitment to flawless content distribution, and the combination of the Kollective ECDN with J-Stream’s market-leading video delivery services presents an ideal opportunity for businesses in Japan to re-think their approach to enterprise-wide communication.”
