Quality matters, but despite advances made in video streaming technology, delivering great quality live video over the
Internet is still not easy. There are challenges with predicting the scale and potential audience location; challenges with
managing complex encoder and origin technology; challenges of delivering video securely and reliably over the Internet;
and challenges of protecting live streams. Add to that the range of devices, the complexity of live event production, and
the demand for HD and 4K image quality and you get a scenario that is more complicated than ever before.
• Our survey of companies that currently offer, or
plan to launch, so-called “direct to consumer,” or
over-the-top (OTT), video services in the market
suggests that the industry is maturing. Though
51 percent of those surveyed view their video
service as a money-making venture, 49 percent
see it as providing some other primary benefit to
the company. Not only are the types of OTT video
services offered to consumers becoming more
diverse, but the marketing and distribution are also
improving such that target audiences are more
likely to find new services intended for them
Das Mirai-Botnet nutzt Hunderttausende von internetfähigen Geräten, die nur über ein schwaches standardmäßiges Kennwort verfügen. Durch Installation von Malware übernimmt Mirai die Kontrolle über die Geräte und errichtet auf diese Weise eine weltumspannende Armee von infizierten Bots. Bis zum Zeitpunkt der Attacke durchsucht jedes betroffene Gerät das Internet nach weiteren angreifbaren Geräten und infiziert diese. Das Internet der Dinge besteht aus Milliarden von Geräten, die Daten senden und empfangen können und heutzutage fast überall anzutreffen sind. Private Sicherheits- und Unterhaltungsgeräte wie Internetkameras, digitale Videorecorder (DVR) und Router werden häufig mit der Mirai-Malware infiziert.

Service providers around the world share concerns about running out of bandwidth. Business challenges surrounding continued bandwidth growth, linked to video, mobility, and cloud applications, are significant. Service providers also report declining revenue from a cost-per-bit perspective, so not only does the network need to grow, it also needs to grow more cost effectively. The Cisco Virtual Networking Index™ (Cisco VNI™) predicts that over 50 billion devices will be connected over these networks by 2020. The network effects of the Internet of Things, LTE mobility, and mobile video are just beginning to be understood. In a world where mobile device network additions are growing four times faster than the population, and machine-to-machine (M2M) device network additions are growing five times faster than mobile device additions, this problem is clearly becoming highly important and requires a good solution.
Protect the network, use the network to protect students
Your schools use a growing amount of networked information and devices as an essential part of teaching and administration. Research on the Internet, laptops in class, distance learning, and online homework are some of the official technologies that your students use.

Behind the scenes are databases with student information, class schedules, attendance records, copies of exams and answers, financial transactions, and even video surveillance. All of these rely on a robust and secure network infrastructure.

For today’s businesses, fast Internet access is more than a competitive advantage. It is an operational necessity. Changes in the way companies are working – and the tools they are using – have created the need for high-speed connections to services and individuals off-site. Across the country, in-house servers are rapidly being replaced by cloud-based infrastructure. Videoconferencing is helping businesses cut travel costs. Mobile devices – with easy links to work-related content – are enabling more employees to be more productive, from any location. All of these applications have one factor in common: they require bandwidth. And plenty of it. Download this white paper to learn more about high-speed internet connections.
Internet service is the heart of any business today, powering everything from telephone service to videoconferences. Because so much of your business depends on a reliable, fast internet connection, it’s important that you choose the best internet service for your environment. With several different options, though, professionals can sometimes feel overwhelmed by the technical jargon.
We all know that hybrid cloud adoption is exploding, with 80% of enterprises having at least some infrastructure in the cloud. This growth includes increased use of the internet to deliver applications, sites and services to employees, partners and customers. These companies need an internet performance management (IPM) strategy to ensure those services reach users effectively, starting with DNS.
Join Trip Kucera and Dyn VP, Gary Sloper, as they discuss the impact of cloud and internet infrastructure across the cloud adoption lifecycle. Key focus points include:
• Optimizing round trip times and latency, from time to first byte, to internet routing
• Understanding and comparing cloud service providers
• Protecting your service from route hijacks, DDoS attacks and mitigating vulnerabilities.
Watch this short Video Webinar and learn how focusing on the DNS layer can help you plan, migrate and optimize your way to cloud success!
