Persbericht: Nederlandse Jet-Stream slaat vleugels uit

Nederlandse Jet-Stream slaat vleugels uit

Groningen, 2 November 2011 - Het Nederlandse Jet-Stream sleepte nieuwe orders voor haar technologie binnen. De orders komen vanuit vele landen, van Brazilië tot Rusland en van India tot Scandinavië. Daarmee beconcurreert het bedrijf succesvol grote wereldspelers zoals Cisco en Alcatel.

Jet-Stream ontwikkelt zogeheten 'Content Delivery Network' (CDN) technologie. Dankzij deze software kunnen telecom bedrijven, uitgeverijen en omroepen televisie en video op grote schaal via Internet distribueren. Omdat video consumptie op Internet snel groeit, is er grote behoefte aan deze slimme technologie: anders loopt het Internet vol en krijg je filevorming.

We see more vendors adding proprietary features for federated models. We see multiple standardization bodies working on interoperability standards. We see telecom operators who think their business case relies on federated and exchange business models. And we see a lot of discussion around the topic on summits and in fora.

How serious is the requirement for CDN federation? Let's first discuss what federation is and what it is not...
