Mobile Delivery Network
This week is all about mobile. It's Mobile World Congress week in Barcelona. A quick refresh what mobile means to CDNs and what CDNs mean to mobile:
Video video video
Mobile operators face extreme growth in data traffic, and it's all video. Android will be big on MWC and will tout many new features but totally fails for video...
HTTP adaptive streaming causing mobile problems
During CDN World Summit, mobile network experts shared their concerns about HTTP Adaptive Bit Rate Streaming. According to radio experts, the technology disrupts the radio signaling.
Radio bandwidth is one challenge, but another challenge in mobile networking is the signaling: signaling is basically the process of establishing, controlling and managing radio communication. Mobile networks have limitations in the number of signals they can process...
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.

EU mobile roaming rates still ridiculously high
Mobile Service Operators charge extreme rates for a flaky service. They are now under public pressure because they secretly have been sniffing and frustrating traffic using DPI. Traffic costs for roaming can be up to $3.33 per MB!
