Need to move video over IP? Learn from the experts so you don’t make a beginner’s mistake.
By definition, a wide area network (WAN) connects two locations that are not on the same local area network (LAN).
Transmitting video over WANs is different than transmitting video over LANs because users rarely have control over the complete network. Typically they only control the end point that belongs to each of the LANs and the WAN trying to connect them.
While it’s clear that Ethernet links offer a variety of advantages, deploying them requires careful consideration and innovative system design. The benefits of IP infrastructures to broadcasters and content providers alike are well worth the effort and cost.
Learn about IP best practices in the article, “The Challenges Of Sending IP Video Over A WAN.”
