The Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI) confirms much of what we already know: Service providers will need to carry more video traffic to more devices delivered as unique on-demand streams. All at the time and place of the end-user’s choosing.
But the sheer scale of this demand makes interesting reading. The Cisco VNI projects that by 2017, the global Internet will reach nearly half (48%) the world’s population, each with roughly five devices and machine-to-machine connections. Together, they will drive a total of 93 exabytes of internet traffic per month. Significantly, Internet video will make up two thirds of this Internet traffic, 65% of which will be carried over content delivery networks (CDN).
And it’s not only Internet video.
Cisco VNI also projects that by 2017, video on-demand (VOD) traffic will nearly triple as it reaches 400 million global subscribers.
The bottom line is that service providers need to deal with unprecedented scale requirements with ever greater capabilities to manage and monitor their CDNs.
The question, of course, is Read More »

In Sao Paulo, GVT TV needed a way to protect its satellite-delivered video content.
In New Delhi, direct broadcast satellite provider Tata Sky needed a way to outfit its customers to stream video to IP-connected screens.
In Mexico, Megacable — the first in the country to launch broadband Internet over cable, needed to build the back-end video acquisition and distribution for an IP-based on-demand service to tablets and connected devices.
And in Germany, Deutsche Telekom needed a better view into its CDN (content delivery network), and a way to bridge into its “Entertain To Go” package of TV Everywhere content.
In all four cases, core components of Cisco’s Videoscape portfolio rose to the challenge: GTV TV selected our Videoscape VideoGuard® Smart Cards. GVT’s service footprint spans 146 cities in Brazil, and expanding.

I am just so excited for Cisco Live US next week! As we give the final touches to our demos and presentations, I am already thinking about what to pack. (Yes, you read my mind – which shoes should I bring? How many pairs do I need? Oh, and how will my hair behave with the humidity? :-))
Joking aside, one thing I know for sure: it will be hot in Orlando! Outside the conference center as well as in the booths of the medianet CDN partners!
As you visit the World of Solutions, please make sure to stop at the booths of our CDN partners. They will be showcasing medianet solutions and you can see first-hand how their great tools bring to life the medianet capabilities to help your organization with deployment, management, troubleshooting and improving quality of experience of video and collaboration deployments.
- ActionPacked! Networks booth #201:
- Besides all the great features in their product LiveAction 3.0, they will be showing their support of Cisco MSI API which allows the identification and monitoring for MSI capable endpoints. Read More »

Hello IP Surveillance Enthusiasts,
ISC West was held at Las Vegas between Apr 10-12, and we continued the engagements with our partners on Cisco Medianet Plugfest here. Plugfest was launched at ASIS Philadelphia in September 2012, and from then till now, we have been actively working on getting partners on-boarded into Cisco’s MSP Cisco Developer Network (CDN) program, evaluating the test results gathered during ASIS and making recommendations to partners on improving interoperability with the network.
At ISC West, we had the wonderful opportunity to touch base with many of our partners already in CDN, and the ones we are closely working with on the process.
These were the sessions/interactions we had on Plugfest at ISC West -

We came together at ASIS, September 2012 in Philadelphia and made good progress with Plugfest – The Media Services Proxy (MSP) CDN program for validating the interoperability of your IP Surveillance cameras with the Cisco Network. We shared with you the capabilities of MSP, the value it can bring for you, and had a live lab where we tested (plug-and-play) your cameras with the MSP software at the event.
Since then we have been working with many of you on getting you on boarded with the CDN program so you could be our official partners, and have also been working on analyzing the lab data we gathered at ASIS.
We will be at ISC West 2013 to share our progress and next steps with you. I take great pleasure in inviting you to our sessions at ISC West –
