Research and Markets: Global Video CDN Market 2014-2018

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/98jnrj/global_video_cdn) has announced the addition of the "Global Video CDN Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The Global Video CDN market will grow at a CAGR of 29.66 percent over the period 2013-2018.

The growth of the Global Video CDN market is driven by several factors, and one such driver is significant increase in video streaming. With increasing internet penetration, there is a significant increase in the number of videos streamed each day that require 24X7 connectivity with improved video quality.

With the unprecedented increase of data on service providers' networks, big companies now find it financially advantageous to build their own CDNs for consumers rather than outsourcing them. Recently, Apple Inc., which earlier relied on Akamai and Level 3 to deliver Apple-related content including apps, iTunes videos, and software updates for iOS and OS X platforms, built its own CDN to serve its consumers. This development is expected to affect the revenues of Akamai and Level 3 in the coming years, depending upon the scale and location of the network. In 2012, Netflix announced that it was shifting most of its streaming video traffic to a single purpose CDN Open Connect owned by Netflix, which affected the revenue of Akamai and Limelight. Netflix is one of the largest sources of internet traffic and its Open Connect CDN reduced its reliance on commercial CDNs. Big brands are the reason for this huge increase in the internet traffic including Amazon, Apple, Google, and Microsoft. The inclination of the major service providers to own their dedicated CDNs is expected to be one of the key highlights during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that the growth of the Global Video CDN market is expected to be hampered by some major challenges, of which cost restraints is the major challenge. Video CDNs are usually provided through third-party vendors that charge high fees as the video applications are volatile with delayed RoI. It becomes difficult even for tier II and tier III companies to afford such high-cost video CDNs.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
