Video Overload: Preventing a network meltdown

Video Overload: Preventing a network meltdown


WebRTC, an emerging standard for embedding voice- and video-conferencing applications into Web browsers, is aimed at making real-time communications as simple as clicking a link. It eliminates the need to download and install any clients or plug-ins, saving time and negating a big source of frustration for many users. But could WebRTC become a victim of its own success? That is, if removing such barriers causes video conferencing to surge, what does that mean for network bandwidth requirements? In this issue of “Network Evolution,” we hear from early adopters of WebRTC video conferencing about how they’ve prepared their networks to handle WebRTC-based video traffic. 

Also in this issue, find out what network engineers say has to happen in the bare-metal switch market to pave the way for enterprise adoption. We also take a look at how IPv6 has made route aggregation easier.
