Track A: How Streaming Video Can Replace Cable TV at Scale and Quality

Wed. October 17| 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM | Location: 3D08

TV viewing habits are clearly shifting from legacy cable TV infrastructure to online, but can online streaming truly replace linear TV at scale and quality? This panel will debate the limitations of today's internet infrastructure and what must change to provide the same scale, quality, performance and low latency delivery as broadcast TV. Speakers will cover the impact on content delivery networks and last mile providers and outline the challenges associated with scaling to meet traffic spikes during major live streaming events. Attendees will also hear about the tech barriers that exist today, what's being done to address them and how content owners view today's Internet infrastructure as a possible replacement for cable TV pipes.
