CDN Bakeoff: BitGravity, Itiva, Grid Networks, Solid State Networks & Move Networks

At the Streaming Media West show taking place in San Jose later in November, we’ll be having a special session where four networks will have 15 minutes to demo their solution. While I typically don’t allow sales pitches by vendors as part of the conference, with all the questions around P2P delivery vendors and other networks, it’s a good way to compare four companies in under an hour. We did this last year with five of the CDN vendors and it worked well.

The four networks presenting will be BitGravity, Itiva, Grid Networks, Solid State Networks and Move Networks. Below is the description from the advance program and you can see all the session descriptions on the show website.

Online registration has now opened and registering early will get you a discount.

Session B204: 3:00 p.m. –4:00 p.m.
Demo: P2P and Next Generation Delivery Networks
Within the past year, a host of new content delivery companies based on P2P and other delivery solutions are stepping up to challenge the traditional way of delivering video. But confusion still reigns as to exactly how their technology works, what their value propositions are, and how they differ from other solutions in the market. This special demo session will give four new companies in the space the chance to showcase their technology and answer questions about their solutions. Come see first-hand what Move Networks, Itiva, Grid Networks, and BitGravity have to offer. Bring any questions you may have, as these companies will join Dan Rayburn for a Q&A session after their demos.
