Cisco Brings Enterprise Content Delivery System for Video

World largest hardware networking equipment manufacturer Cisco Systems upgraded its enterprise video infrastructure last week with the launch of the new Enterprise Content Delivery System (ECDS), a software-hardware platform, to ease up the process of video management.

According to the company, this new offering will also prove to be quite handy when it comes to making video-distribution to remote locations far more efficient process than it currently is.

ECDS has been designed to form an integral part of Cisco’s Medianet architecture, which in turn, was brought into being for automating the production and delivery of videos for employees, clients as well as for partners.

It’s been almost five years since the company had first embraced this vision of extending its support to the new worldwide working standards, as well as the increasing network demand that accompanies them.

"This is part of the evolution of the IP network to where video is the majority of the content," Guido Jouret, VP and general manager of Cisco's enterprise video group and CTO of the emerging technologies group, stated, InformationWeek reports.

ECDS is currently available at a starting price of US$4,395 for a virtual WAAS blade and $10,595 for an MDE appliance.
