redGalaxy CDN traffic has exceeded 750 Gb/s. It was achieved during the online broadcast of #koncertdlabohaterów on player.pl.
The player.pl portal has been using redGalaxy technology, developed by Atende Software, since 2011. One of the elements of the OTT technology platform is the content delivery network, redGalaxy CDN, which enables the transmission of video streaming content on a very large scale. The system consists of about 200 servers located in the networks of major telecommunications operators and at domestic and foreign internet traffic exchange points. It is based on proprietary software developed and improved from the very beginning of the Atende Software. The total capacity of redGalaxy CDN is over 1 Tbit / s (terabit per second).
On Saturday, April 4, one of the most important events in the history of player.pl took place – it was a charity concert organized by the TVN Foundation “Nie jesteś sam” under the slogan #KoncertDlaBohaterów. It was a symbolic “thank you” for the involvement of health professionals in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic. The musicians played from their homes, connecting to the studio via the Internet. Performers include Roksana Węgiel, Blue Cafe, Maryla Rodowicz, Beata Kozidrak, Marcin Wyrostek, ENEJ and Tomek Lipiński. The event was hosted by Marcin Prokop.
During the concert, the traffic in redGalaxy CDN system reached a record level of nearly 750 Gbit / s. Thus, the concert was one of the largest events broadcast on the Polish Internet.
– I am glad that Atende Software was a technological partner of such a unique event. By supporting this level of traffic, we proved that Internet TV can successfully complement – and in the future replace – linear television – comments Przemysław Frasunek, Vice President of Atende Software.
