The technology does not require additional installation on user endpoints or changes to the physical network infrastructure.

“We’re excited to partner with Microsoft and enable our eCDN solution for their many enterprise customers with a single mouse-click. We’re eagerly looking forward to enabling live streaming for many more organizations around the world!” wrote Weiss.
