Ericsson video compression

Filed under: Hardware,Internet — hayesjupe @ 6:55 am

Every now and again – i do a quick search to see what new compression techniques are coming – as obviously any advances in this area have a large impact on many aspects of what we do…

Came across this article – http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9230510/New_video_compression_tech_will_cut_bandwidth_use_in_half_Ericsson_says

claiming a 50% reduction in bandwidth for streaming….. as per usual, the article is scant on detail… but it will be interesting to see what comes of it.

 

Still on compression, visited a client yesterday who is implementing silver peak WAN optimisation (http://www.silver-peak.com/)

He’s saying in their (so far) limited roll out, he’s seeieng an 90% reduction in SAN replication traffic, 70% in SMB and around 30% in non-cached HTTP…. impressive figures indeed, will be interesting to see if the figures are still as good when it is fully deployed. On the down side, the silverpeak stuff is bloody expensive… but with the potential savings on telco charges – it may be something worth looking at.
