Media & Broadcast

Video-on-Demand has grown enormously in recent years. Content has to follow the mobile consumer everywhere, be available at all times, and be viewable in the highest quality. The underlying network infrastructure needs to address a number of clear requirements if it is to cope with the business demands of the media and broadcasting industry.

“Connectivity is a business-critical component for content production and distribution.”

You Want

•  Location-independence – Be able to create anywhere in the world
 Provide content to consumers who demand top service  Low latency
•  Large volumes of data – High bandwidth
  Multi-party syndication – Chain integration
•  Availability – ‘Five 9s’
•  Standardisation – All-IP

The quality of the connections influences consumer satisfaction and the media company’s reputation. Content providers therefore have to concentrate on the quality of their communication infrastructure. The latest approaches for realising low latency and high bandwidth are applicable to content distribution and advertising syndication. The need for speed prevails. Media publishers lose money as soon as their connectivity falters. Custom Connect helps numerous global content publishers, broadcasters, entertainment producers, online gaming companies and advertisers provide their ‘need for speed’ and availability.
