Mr. Heiden will share his insights on the video delivery model and its necessary evolution as consumer video consumption grows faster than the bandwidth available for its transportation.  In particular, he will explore the evolving role of content delivery networks (CDNs), the surging growth of applications, the development of more advanced edge caching technologies and techniques, and advancements enabling efficient, real-time transcoding.

“Video is inhibiting networks to scale quickly and efficiently in order to provide consumers the best user experience,” remarks Heiden.  “This insatiable demand for video calls for a redefined physical landscape of today’s Internet.  At EdgeConneX, we are creating that new Internet edge by designing and deploying purpose-built Edge Data Centers closest to key broadband provider aggregation points to ensure lowest latency, high quality video delivery.”
