Media & Entertainment Challenges

People have high expectations for their online entertainment experience – and little patience when something goes wrong. An extra long buffer, underserved bitrate or missing images can ruin an entertainment experience. That’s why the most successful media and entertainment companies understand how to:

  • Provide a high quality experience across devices
  • Support peak load and unexpected traffic
  • Ensure content and videos load quickly and correctly
  • Present a consistent presence across web and mobile
  • Deal with less-than-ideal connectivity
