Is your organization ready to take the plunge into in-house video production? The benefits can be substantial, but making the move requires some preparation. The IT infrastructure you use for enterprise applications might not be able to meet the rigorous requirements of video production. And you might not want video production teams to use resources from your existing infrastructure, since doing so could affect the performance of other applications. Whether you’re just getting started with in-house video or ramping up production, consider these five best practices for building an IT environment optimized for video work. The right approach to IT is essential for developing efficient collaborative workflows and maximizing the value of your video content.
Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand.
The typical business pain points per the above scenario are always like:
Latency – While, latency problems caused by geographic distance are impossible to solve on the public Internet;
Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base;
Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget.
Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats.

According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.

There is a tectonic shift in the way we work. We expect the same kind of intuitive, tactile experience with our workplace technology that we now take for granted with our smartphones, tablets and gaming systems. We expect our devices to talk to each other and update automatically. Virtual meetings should be as easy to set up as a video chat, and whatever we need to do our jobs should be as easy to tailor as a streaming music or video application.

Red Hat CTO for global service providers, Ian Hood, and TelecomTV talk about multi edge compute capacity and the fundamental need to have a common platform to deliver future services. ‘If you are not feeling some pain, you are not driving fast enough’, says Red Hat CTO, Global Service Provider, Ian Hood. The race to 5G is definitely on, and the use cases are clear. You can talk about multi edge compute capacity and other technical issues, but the fundamental thing is to have a common platform to deliver future services. We need to get to the point where IoT Everywhere, virtualized video and all the applications that come from new 5G services are delivered seamlessly. Even blockchain has a clear future within the telco environment where the world of eSIMs, secure roaming charges and identity management can alls be based on blockchain technology.
Blue Coat Optimized Video Delivery utilizes a combination of stream-splitting and caching technologies to prevent "video floods" that are caused when Internet video saturates a company's WAN or Internet gateway and keeps other applications from performing properly.
Social and technological changes are transforming the nature of network traffic, raising network costs and performance issues. Learn how to proactively manage the WAN as new Web protocols, consumer and corporate video and cloud-delivered applications become mainstream.
With unified communications and collaboration (UCC), you can address these challenges by helping people to connect more efficiently and intuitively. You can use UCC to bring together multiple forms of communications, like voice, video and data services, and software applications into a single environment, making it easier to connect.
