When it comes to mitigating major threats to public health, it is imperative for organizations like the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to keep their finger on the pulse of global developments that require a coordinated national or global response.
Reliance on video traffic was compounded over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, as CDC staff were sent to work from home where they collectively participated in exponentially more video meetings. This shift to working remotely resulted in a tremendous explosion of video traffic that put unprecedented stress on the CDC’s enterprise networks.
“In addition to being ardent consumers of news and information, doctors, scientists, and other healthcare experts at the CDC produce a tremendous amount of original content for both internal and external consumption. This makes the agency one of the most video-centric departments in the federal government,” says Dan Quinn, Federal Sales Director at VITEC, a worldwide leader in advanced video encoding and streaming solutions for business, industrial and public sector applications.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) staff relies on timely access to—and delivery of—information about threats to public health. The CDC therefore requires a network that can quickly and efficiently deliver high-quality video content to key stakeholders.
The CDC now enjoys the benefits of video compression at optimal efficiency, making it possible for increased video traffic to flow through the existing networks without additional latency. The solution, in short, provides the foundation for the CDC to support emerging video technologies and standards and benefit from the highest levels of video streaming performance.
