Wowza Media Systems has integrated its video streaming product with the edge cloud platform from Fastly to provide content distributors with a better idea of how bandwidth is consumed by end users during live streaming and video delivery.
Wowza said its integration with Fastly represents a “long-term commitment” to providing customers with intelligent diagnostics and robust analytics. The aim is to enable near real-time visibility into bandwidth consumption, the number of viewers and regional metrics, allowing content distributors to understand their audience better and react to problems more quickly.
Lee Chen, head of streaming media and cloud, Fastly, said: “Having good observability is a critical part of ensuring quality of experience when streaming a live event. That means visibility across an entire streaming stack, which is uniquely able to help you monitor, identify issues and gather more details so you can react faster during a live broadcast.
”That kind of observability is incredibly valuable, and our partnership with Wowza enables those insights into viewership and exposes critical last-mile performance data in Fastly’s real-time logging.”
Fastly’s network combines 66 high-density points of presence across the globe and 58Tbps of edge capacity (as of 30 September 2019). Wowza also plans to support additional features such as video on demand, network-based digital video recorders (nDVR) and syndication.
Wowza and Fastly tie-up enables content distributors to understand their audience better.
