Introducing Zoom Mesh: A Native eCDN Solution for Effortless Virtual Events and Webinars
As virtual meetings and online events have become increasingly common in recent years, the need for a reliable and efficient video communication solution has become more pressing. With the rise of hybrid work, video communications and virtual events are now critical for maintaining business productivity. However, this can put a strain on your office WAN or internet connection, especially if you need to support large-scale webinars or events.
To address this challenge, Zoom has launched its native eCDN solution, Zoom Mesh. Designed to reduce WAN or internet bandwidth usage, Zoom Mesh ensures a seamless experience for attendees of Zoom Events and Zoom Webinars and eliminates the need for third-party eCDN solutions.
What are CDNs and eCDNs?
A CDN, or content delivery network, is a system of servers that is used to distribute content more efficiently over the internet. By having servers in multiple locations, CDNs help to speed up the delivery of content to users.
eCDNs, or enterprise content delivery networks, are specifically designed to improve bandwidth utilization for large, one-to-many media streaming events. This makes eCDN solutions essential for organizations that need to stream content to remote office locations and large Contacts and Channels . You can add contacts, create contact groups of users.
How Zoom Mesh Works
Zoom Mesh optimizes bandwidth by relying on peer-to-peer technology to reduce the number of media streams transmitted over the enterprise WAN edge. The media streams are transmitted from the cloud only to selected parent clients, who then forward them to child clients in the same location. With the ability for each parent client to support up to 50 children, this can significantly reduce internet bandwidth consumption. The Mesh configuration is created before the start of an event and can be dynamically adjusted during the event.
Efficient, Scalable, and Manageable
Zoom Mesh is designed to not only minimize bandwidth constraints but also lower costs by eliminating the need for third-party eCDN solutions. With a simple enablement process and seamless integration into the Zoom ecosystem, you can be up and running in minutes. Additionally, Zoom Mesh is capable of improving bandwidth utilization while allowing attendees to use all the native features of Zoom Events and Zoom Webinars.
Reliable Performance and Scalability
Built on the reliable Zoom video platform, Zoom Mesh is scalable to tens of thousands of users and hundreds of locations, with minimal impact on the client performance or user experience. The Zoom Mesh dashboard is a single admin console that makes it easy to monitor performance and measure webinars and events bandwidth utilization.
Say Goodbye to Third-Party eCDNs
Third-party eCDN solutions can result in a loss of the native Zoom Webinars or Zoom Events experience and limit the availability of its features. With Zoom Mesh, there is no need for on-prem components or proprietary clients, and the solution can be enabled by an IT administrator in minutes.
