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 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 organisations the most complete video webcasting solution. Kollective's unique positioning as a completely cloud-based solution, with peer assisted content distribution optimised for each enterprise’s unique network topology, sets it apart from other options that depend on expensive hardware based WAN optimisation and video delivery.


Why this partnership is significant:

  • New technologies are making enterprise video simpler, better and more affordable than ever, yet many organisations shy away from widespread deployments due to insufficient networks or knowledge of how to optimise 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 organisations,” says Andrew Pearce, Managing Director, EMEA of 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.”
