  • Rapid deployment. Typically deployed in one to two days, as the platform realizes load balancing and node flexibility through ChinaCache's unified scheduling and resource allocation platform.
  • One-stop solution. Addresses all technical requirements for live streaming.
  • Broad coverage. Leverages ChinaCache's broad CDN network to ensure the utmost coverage.
  • Stability and Flexibility. Ensures secure, high-quality transmission of content with no exposure of the client's URL. ChinaCache also developed a real-time surveillance system that measures bandwidth, traffic, and visitors in five-minute intervals to help the client understand the service status and make strategy adjustments, if necessary.
  • Cost savings. Saves bandwidth costs and server deployment costs for the client as streaming downloading technology is adopted.

"Over the next five years, we foresee video traffic increasing by a multiple of sixty, and live streaming content delivery will be increasingly popular in sectors like gaming, talk show entertainment, education, news portals and HD Internet network TV," said Mr. Song Wang, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ChinaCache.
