Akamai and beyond TCP: Scaling video delivery into the future by reinventing the core distribution protocols

In its role delivering content for a vast number of customers, Akamai sits in a unique position to observe the biggest challenges in continuing to scale video delivery systems into the future. Having lived with TCP since 1974 as our primary mechanism for reliable message delivery, the time is now to design and deploy systems that meet the specific needs of our video platforms. This talk will cover ongoing R&D and production deployment results as Akamai works to replace TCP to provide secure protocol acceleration, multicast, and peer-to-peer enabled protocols.
