Arkadin Partners with Kollective to Drive Wide Scale Deployment of Video in Enterprises
Kollective’s Delivery Network Enables High Quality Video for Enhancing Employee Communications in the Digital Age
Arkadin, a market leader in cloud communications, including Unified Communications and Collaboration services, announced today it has partnered with Kollective, a leading software-defined content delivery network company, to enable Arkadin clients to have the highest quality video experience. Kollective’s secure Software-Defined Enterprise Content Delivery Network (SD ECDN) will seamlessly integrate with Arkadin’s webcasting platforms from ON24, Nasdaq and Skype Meeting Broadcast, to give organizations the most complete video webcasting solution. Kollective’s unique positioning as a completely cloud-based solution, with peer assisted content distribution optimized for each enterprise’s unique network topology, sets it apart from other options that depend on expensive hardware based WAN (wide area network) optimization and video delivery.
Why this partnership is significant:
- New technologies are making enterprise video simpler, better and more affordable than ever, yet many organizations shy away from widespread deployments due to insufficient networks or knowledge of how to optimize and scale live and/or on-demand applications.
- Video is expected to comprise 80% of all Internet traffic globally by 2019 according to industry data.
- 56% of executives prefer video messages to traditional written communications.
“Interest in video is surging, yet our clients are challenged in delivering high quality video experiences since they don’t have sufficiently robust networks or a plan for scaling it throughout their organizations,” says Mark Alexander, president Americas, Arkadin. “Kollective’s delivery infrastructure solves this problem by enabling quick deployments that can reach thousands of employees simultaneously, easy maintenance and reduced network loads. We’re confident our partnership will drive 50 – 75% increases in our webcast volume over the next few years.”
Webinar: Understanding the “Art of the Possible” for Video Communications
Mark Alexander and Todd Johnson, president of Kollective, will focus on how internal communications can fully leverage video communications, ensure stakeholder buy-in, gain budget and how the human/digital factor can be blended to deliver authentic messages to the workforce in a live video webinar.
