Product Details

Ramp Multicast+, a next-generation multicast enterprise delivery content network (eCDN), is the most efficient way to stream live video. Instead of sending countless video streams across your network to reach every viewer, it distributes a single stream whether you have 100, 10,000 or 100,000+ viewers. Simply put, multicast uses drastically less bandwidth to save your network and deliver an uninterrupted, high-quality viewing experience. 

One way to save your network from bandwidth-intensive enterprise video is to bring the video closer to viewers. OmniCache™, Ramp’s intelligent video caching solution, drastically reduces the bandwidth used by live and on-demand video - by 90% or more. 

Ramp OmniCache is an intelligent video caching solution that drastically reduces the bandwidth used by live and on-demand video. Cache software deploys in strategic locations around your network, close to concentrations of viewers. When the first viewer requests the video, the cache retrieves it from the video source, and stores a local copy at the cache. When another viewer in the same location requests the video, they receive it from the local cache, not the source. Now fewer video streams are travelling across the corporate internet connection and WAN links, reserving bandwidth for mission-critical applications. With less distance to travel, employees also enjoy a high-quality, glitch-free experience with faster start times.

Ramp peer-to-peer (P2P) networking eCDN uses client devices to redistribute your videos and save bandwidth at locations with limited infrastructure. Through our partnerships with StriveCast, Ramp delivers both on-premises and cloud-based WebRTC peer-to-peer networking (P2P) solutions to complete our portfolio and help companies stream video to every location.
