EdgeNext, an edge cloud service provider, has partnered with Jet Stream, a broadcast-grade streaming platform, to enhance content delivery services. The collaboration will benefit EdgeNext and Jet Stream customers across Asia, the Pacific, China and the MEA. The partnership will leverage EdgeNext’s extensive content delivery network and Jet Stream’s management platform to increase overall performance.
“We’re excited to partner with the Jet-Stream team to enhance their global reach with the EdgeNext network and services while also empowering the EdgeNext ecosystem through this partnership and providing access to Jet-Stream’s enhanced streaming technologies and network to EdgeNext customers,” said Joshua Johnson, the senior director of solution architects at EdgeNext.
EdgeNext is a company that specializes in providing edge cloud services, including content delivery networks, streaming services and security solutions for edge computing applications. The company says its solutions are secure and flexible, aiming to reduce costs and latency. The EdgeNext content delivery network has over 1300 points of presence (PoPs) worldwide.
“We are delighted to add EdgeNext to our portfolio of CDN services. EdgeNext integration brings clear advantages to our customers, including domestic China mainland delivery support for live streams and on-demand video,” said Joshua Peper, the CTO of Jet Stream.
Jet Stream says it has been offering live streaming services since the early days of the internet. According to the company, its Jet Stream Airflow multi-CDN uses intelligent algorithms to determine the most economical global distribution route to maximize performance and enhance uptime. Jet Stream claims this approach can also lower streaming traffic costs by up to 40 percent. The multi-CDN integration provides monitoring, active load balancing, access control, flushing and log processing for fully automated content delivery, the company says.
Jet Stream believes large broadcasters may need help integrating and managing multiple content delivery networks. The company claims its content delivery services allow broadcasters to control distribution and not rely on in-house resources to optimize their streaming stack.
“We focus on customers who need to go beyond the performance, features, and geographies of standard video platforms,” Peper added.
