CDN projects by Jet-Stream
Projects and milestones
Jet-Stream has been involved in more CDN projects than most other vendors have deployed together. We have over 15 years of hands-on experience with CDN challenges, pitfalls and business cases. We have learned how some CDN technologies are limiting customers so we invented better technologies. We have experience with projects from a telecom operators view, but even more importantly also from a system integrator and content owners view. We have learned why some CDN business cases have failed and why others have succeeded, and therefore we can better advise our customers. As the described projects below demonstrate, Jet-Stream has unique experience with CDNs from both ends of the spectrum: from operated CDNs to licensed CDN technologies and any hybrid solution in between.
A new Era | Web 3.0 | premium television | next-gen CDNs
Web 3.0: premium television
1st generation Internet
1993-1999: Web 1.0. The first decade of the Internet was all about pioneering. We had dial-up internet, with slow and unreliable connections. We pioneered live streaming in 1994. The potential audience of the web was small. There was no business in content services. Video was a challenge. The first Global CDNs emerged, focussing on web delivery, using caching and DNS technologies. Internet was a technical revolution.

Executive webcast producer
Between 1995 and 2001 I was responsible for large scale webcast productions. My personal favorites were the EuroSonic/Noorderslag festivals.
Over 150 bands performed in over twenty venues, around the city of Groningen. The festivals were traditionally broadcasted live on the radio.
We wanted to give the audience a great online experience. Our largest production involved over 55 staff members.
