PlayStream is a fully distributed network with
Content Delivery Centers currently in Seattle
and Atlanta. Working with Internap (www.internap.com),
PlayStream uses an advanced "Synchronous-When-Optimal"
routing service to deliver your media around the
congested public and private exchange points on
the Internet from the most optimal data center.
These exchange points are often the primary areas
where latency and packet loss occur (which contributes
to rebuffering of your media).
The routing technology implemented continuously
monitors the traffic situation over all the major
Internet backbones and routes mission-critical
data faster, more reliable and better managed
than conventional Internet technology.
Through our alliance with Internap, our Content
Delivery Centers are directly connected via OC3s
and Gigabit Ethernet connections to the major
IP backbone providers. Combining this routing
intelligence with our "one-hop" proximity to the
Internet enables us to deliver your media
with a level of value and performance not found
at your typical Internet Service Provider.
