Video routing improvements that control the way video streams are delivered across networks can yield huge benefits for both video delivery network providers and customers of their services. It can ensure that video uptime is maximised, with optimal bandwidth and latency being utilised. Ultimately, this increases end user satisfaction and ensures customers of video delivery networks and content owners can garner a large and engaged audience.
