SRT triggers “live” video surge – bigger than SVoD | CDN Forecast to 2024

Live and low latency drive CDN growth Video is taking an increasing proportion of CDN traffic and CDNs in turn are expanding their share of all IP packet transmissions. These established trends will continue over the forecast period to 2024 but the main emerging factors will be a surge in live streaming video traffic and hitched to that a boom in low latency protocols, particularly the SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) and possibly Reliable Internet Stream Transport (RIST) protocols because of their ability to shave latencies much closer to the ultimate limits imposed by the laws of physics. Both these trends show up strongly in our projections erupting from the bedrock of video traffic around 2017, given that SRT is after…
