Ramp Announces Enhanced Integration with Microsoft Stream Live Events

AltitudeCDN™ enables users of Microsoft Stream to host live events while conserving enterprise network resources

BOSTON, July 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ramp, leading providers of enterprise video solutions, announced today an enhanced integration with Microsoft Stream. Through this integration, Stream users can harness the power of Ramp AltitudeCDN™ from within the Stream interface to optimize network bandwidth for live events, as well as on-demand video.

Ramp AltitudeCDN™ has been recognized as the first content delivery network (eCDN) provider to be certified with Microsoft® Stream since the announcement at Microsoft Ignite 2016. With Microsoft’s announcement of Stream’s live events capabilities and native integrations with content delivery network partners, AltitudeCDN™ is positioned to help event producers optimize network bandwidth and support successful live event broadcasts, in addition to on-demand streaming.

Ramp AltitudeCDN™ is Common Enterprise Streaming Infrastructure (CESI) which reliably optimizes the distribution of video from any video source, scales over time without requiring costly and labor-intensive network upgrades, and meets or exceeds enterprise security requirements.

Additionally, Ramp AltitudeCDN™ is the only publicly referenced solution that does not depend on a peer-to-peer (P2P) architecture being deployed within the enterprise, where many organizations have implemented security policies and standards that preclude P2P solutions.

"We're proud to have been the first eCDN provider verified with Microsoft Stream as well as our continued collaboration with Microsoft to offer enterprise customers live and on-demand video delivery optimization," said Tom Racca, CEO of Ramp.  "Organizations in the Fortune 100 and 500 to smaller companies with highly-distributed workforces can choose Ramp's scalable, software-based CESI solution to standardize the network layer and protect the network as the use of both live and on-demand video continues to grow."

Microsoft Stream is a business video service that democratizes access to and discovery of video at work. With the announcement of live events capabilities, Stream allows users to easily share live video streams, in addition to on-demand video content across their organizations, as well as creating a highly searchable video library which can be accessed on any device.

Ramp AltitudeCDN™ integrates with Microsoft Stream to manage network distribution and ensure seamless delivery of video content, at any scale, across global WANs. Ramp’s software-defined enterprise networking solutions deploy entirely behind the firewall and never need an external connection to a cloud-based service to operate, making them the safest and most favorable video delivery infrastructure options for security-conscious IT departments.

Furthermore, consistent with Microsoft’s emphasis on providing secure solutions, Ramp’s enterprise content delivery network boasts enterprise-grade security features, such encryption of content while in motion and at rest and distribution over HTTPS.

Ramp is a partner provider for both Microsoft Stream and Azure.
