Media & Entertainment companies have to send large files all the time — both internally and externally. Your project team is growing inside your office (or hemisphere) and outside, and many are from an ever-growing list of third parties. Everybody wants files “right away”, and you can’t bend your security standards to meet tight deadlines.
It would seem that the limits of basic network connectivity tend to get in the way of your seemingly conflicting objectives.
Connections are Unreliable
Remember that time your connection stalled out in the middle of a big transfer? We bet that hurt.
Connections are Unsecured
When transferring your valuable content, taking your chances over the public internet can open you up to increased risk of hacking or leaks.
Connections are Slow
You purchased connection at a certain bandwidth, but you never seem to be hitting that speed when you need it most. The unexpected contention of “traffic jams” may be hurting your ability to meet deadlines.
Files are Getting Bigger Every Day
Typical file sizes have been increasing exponentially over the past few years (thanks to 4K and HDR video, VR, and massive VFX rendering requirements)
Of course, you could ambitiously set out to build your own dedicated network. But the CAPEX and OPEX costs are high, and taking on such project on an on-going basis could further complicate you operations.
