Dynamic midstream CDN switcher & global load balancer
CDN Load Balancer’s dynamic multi-CDN switcher automates traffic management while customising delivery to ensure peak performance for every viewer. Our transparent client-side CDN switching module is the premier solution on the market that uses real-time feedback from the device to choose the best possible CDN on a segment-by-segment basis instream during the individual video session.
How the Lumen instream CDN switcher works
In the beginning of a video session, CDN Load Balancer selects the most appropriate CDN from the geographical and business inputs of your choice.
During the session, our QoE-based multi-CDN load balancer takes CDN switching a step further. For each segment request, current CDN bandwidth, latency and errors are calculated to assess whether or not a switch should be made to improve quality or avoid potential CDN congestion or failure. The next video segment is automatically and seamlessly redirected to the appropriate CDN.
Transparent failsafe mechanism for a seamless video experience
Circumvent congestion and avoid service outages thanks to per-segment CDN selection during the session.
Unique Per-device Instream Quality Optimisation
The only load balancer on the market that makes real-time decisions seamlessly instream; feedback directly from the device guarantees optimal performance for every user.
