Equinix, Inc., the leading provider of network-neutral data centers and Internet exchange services, today announced that it will be presenting its predictions on the latest Internet video trends, poised to generate a volume of traffic that could dwarf currently peered Internet traffic.
William Norton, co-founder and chief technical liaison of Equinix, will chair the Peering Track, under the Interprovider Relationships Stream, during this year’s Asia Pacific Regional Internet Conference on Operational Technologies (APRICOT). In addition, Norton will be discussing his latest research detailing the four models for Internet Video Distribution – Simple Commodity Transit, Content Delivery Networks, blending transit and peering methods and finally, the Peer-to-Peer distribution model. The cost models include network and server equipment, along with pricing models for various distribution methods. The associated whitepaper details the benefits and trade-offs of each model.
Founded in 1996, APRICOT is Asia’s premier Internet summit. The event gathers the region’s industry providers, enabling the establishment of peering relationships and knowledge sharing, within the Internet and content provider communities. This year’s conference will take place for the first time in Indonesia, from 27 February to 1March, at the Bali International Convention Center.
