Main agenda
Solving the Challenges of Delivering Live OTT Video at Scale
  • James Kretchmar - CTO EMEA, Akamai
  • Patrick Richardson - Senior Product Manager, Akamai Technologies

Workshop overview:

In a changing landscape in which network operators are becoming media companies, and media companies are more dependent on operators to deliver increasingly higher quality content to more devices, there is a need to adapt or be left behind. Challenges include:

  • Anticipating and responding to subscriber demand
  • Consolidating delivery infrastructure to reduce costs
  • Optimizing quality

 The goal of this workshop will be to engage with both operators and media companies in a highly interactive discussion, framed by some of the ways that Akamai is working with our customers on overcoming these challenges to compete and thrive moving forward.
