Cisco today announced the Cisco® Enterprise Content Delivery System (ECDS)®, a set of video distribution products that work together to address IT leaders’ growing challenge of delivering the highest-quality live and on-demand video content to end users anywhere, anytime.
As a key video infrastructure component of the Cisco medianet architecture, ECDS consists of hardware appliances and Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) virtual blade software. The appliances and software work together to help organizations distribute live video content via streaming or multicasting, and, on-demand video via caching and prepositioning. ECDS also provides an IT-friendly management system for easy setup, configuration, maintenance, and monitoring of video. ECDS works together with Cisco WAAS to form a complete WAN optimization solution for video, applications and data.
