  6. 6. FileTransfers and SDN?
  7. 7. Broadcasters are quickly moving to file based content acquisition, also for time sensitive media production. - Internally they rely on proprietary software - For content exchange with others they often use inefficient IT/office protocols (FTP) - Time sensitive exchange can only be solved by dedicated leased lines – limiting reach and flexibility. File-based media production The big broadcast survey 2015, Devoncroft
  8. 8. What? - Programmable - Centralized control - Steered by business applications Why? - Foundation for delivering bandwidth by-the-minute - Speed up new service time-to-market So what? Media producers are - In control - Get connectivity where and when needed - Pay only for what is used. Automated and agile media production workflows are supported with real-time on-demand network connectivity. Software Defined Networking
  9. 9. So what’s the solution?
  10. 10. Transfer files with on-demand bandwidth using FileTeleport • Choose files, destination and arrival time • Automatically accelerate your transfers using on- demand bandwidth with real-time pricing • Exchange content with guaranteed time-of-arrival
  11. 11. FileTeleport –Why? With FileTeleport broadcasters and content owners can truly accelerate file transfers and they get a guaranteed time-of-arrival. Using an interoperable platform everyone can exchange content, and with no management of servers and software and no manual exchange of server information and user credentials the cost of operations is low.

  16. 16. Solving Latency Issues Solving Latency Issues Every network suffers from latency Latency is an expression of how much time it takes for a packet of data to get from one designated point to another. Network latency is measured by sending a packet and receiving an acknowledgement. This round-trip time (RTT) is the “latency”. Visualize the flow of packets like water running through a hose. With FTP, there is a kink in the hose restricting the water’s flow. With FileCatalyst, the kink is removed and water can rush through unrestricted. FTP is a very serial process. Each packet of data must be received before a new packet is sent = Decreased transfer speed FileCatalyst completely saturates the pipe by sending multiple blocks of data = Increased transfer speed Source File Destination File Acknowledgments Data Packet Source File Destination File Acknowledgments
  17. 17. Efficient Transport Protocol Efficient Transport Protocol FileCatalyst transfers files at full link speed: • UDP with proprietary retransmission and congestion control • Patented algorithm built from the ground up in-house • Transfer rates up to 10 Gbps (with encryption) using commodity hardware • Not affected by latency and speed degrades, linearly with packet loss • Ability to fully leverage multi-core CPU architecture

  20. 20. • A point-to-point file transfer solution requiring software at both endpoints • Client applications include: • HotFolder: Automated and scheduled Transfers with folder synchronization • Express: Desktop client, manual process • Web Technologies: Upload from any browser on any OS with the use of a plugin. • Development Tools: Command Line, Java & .NET API for seamless integration • Mobile Applications: iOS and Android
  21. 21. TransferAgent • Our Alternative to Web Applets. • Support starting transfers from remote locations • Full REST API to start, get statistics and cancel transfers • Can be integrated into any application using any programming language. TransferAgent
  22. 22. FileCatalyst Central FileCatalyst Central • A web application providing an overview of a user’s entire FileCatalyst deployment • View ongoing transfers in real-time, dig into transaction histories, and check or clear alarms • Inspect connected nodes and remotely control FileCatalyst Server and FileCatalyst HotFolder instances from one central management console
  23. 23. KeyTakeaways File acceleration using a software defined media network gives broadcasters fast and reliable file transfers, and network service providers a new offering to climb the value chain. FileTeleport -Truly accelerates transfers with on-demand bandwidth and guarantees time-of-arrival -Automates order-to-bill, which simplifies usage and keeps operational costs low. -Lets you combine live and file based workflows in one infrastructure
