View Full Version : Internet TV, Television 2.0

Robert X Cringely is postulating today that as bandwidth applications grow, the data centers will never be ready to serve 30 million concurrent streams of data. Akamai, with its tens of thousands of servers spread in an intelligent topology, still can't serve more than 150,000 concurrent streams, which is never going to impress the TV network exec used to audiences in the millions. Cringely choruses that secure P2P is the solution to delivering not only high quality video but also to audiences that scale in the millions.

I think distributing media around the world in a BitTorrent ( style would be the way to go.

This way, individuals would be able to distribute their video to the world, without having to have gigantic Akamai-style servers.

Using P2P technology would be another concern. Some ISP providers in some countries already bared such usage.
