Availability of Microsoft eCDN

Microsoft announce that Microsoft eCDN is available from 1 September, 2022. eCDN stands for Enterprise Content Delivery Network and the product is designed to enhance live video streaming across an organisation.

It’s a WebRT-based solution that leverages peer-to-peer streaming technology so that rather than every viewer of a video stream pulling the video from the original source, they can also source the video stream from other viewers within the same local network. This alleviates the overall load on the corporate network for company-wide training and global events.

Licensing-wise, it’s a User Subscription License costing $0.50 per user per month with the recommendation being that all users in a tenant are licensed for optimal experience.
