Webcasts make it possible to reach employees worldwide. But if all employees watch a live webcast at the same time, chances are that the bandwith isn’t sufficient enough. This is called a “peak demand problem”. Peer-to-peer technology makes it possible to broadcast internal webcasts without overloading the internal network or having to compromise on image quality.

For large organisations with thousands of employees and offices around the world, internal webcasts are extremely important to inform employees, to engage employees and to train them. However, such broadcasts for large numbers require serious bandwidth and capacity of the internal network.
Webcasts make it possible to reach employees worldwide in an interactive way through live video. But if all employees want to watch a live video webcast at the same time, chances are that the image quality can be poor or that there is no video at all. The bandwith is simply not sufficient enough to provide everyone with a high quality live webcast. Organisations then deal with a so-called “peak demand problem”.
Peer-to-peer technology as a solution for the peak demand problem
Now that (live) video is increasingly used by large organisations to communicate internally, peak demand problems in the internal network will also increase significantly.
There are several solutions to solve this peak demand problem, but too often these solutions are pricey and they require help of the IT department to install certain software. Apart from the high costs, common solutions require specific software to be installed on the computers of all end users. Without help of the IT department, such solutions are difficult to implement.
With the launch of peer-to-peer technology for webcasts by Company Webcast, solving the peak demand problem becomes very easy. Company Webcast’s new and advanced peer-to-peer technology offers:
- Reduction of the required bandwidth up to 95%;
- No software installation required: you won’t need the IT department which saves time and money;
- Flexible pricing: pay per webcast or choose a yearly license;
- Lower costs: costs are reduced up to 50%;
