We’ve all experienced the frustration that comes with visiting a website or web application, only to have the page load slowly (or not at all). Social and professional networking sites and gaming sites are just a few examples of platforms that may struggle with heavy bandwidth demands and high growth trajectories.
Web-based service providers in this type of situation can benefit greatly from being in a data center with a rich ecosystem of service providers. Having dark fiber, peering exchange, and consumer network POPs available with a simple cross-connect simplifies operations a great deal. What’s more, reducing vendor interaction to the physical level as much as possible maximizes performance, optimizes user experience, and minimizes total cost of ownership (TCO).
In a new white paper titled, “When Over-the-Top (OTT) Companies Outgrow Their Network Provider,” we discuss how a private network can benefit web-based service providers. Topics we cover in this white paper include:
- Specific network requirements
- Transport infrastructure
- Transport network overlays
- IP network overlays
- Content delivery networks
By the end of the paper, we hope you’ll have a better understanding of how large web-based service companies can overcome the limitations of capacity and responsiveness associated with outside vendors.
