The ISPA monitored our server delivery 24/7 against other streaming providers and we were judged to be the best 2 years in a row.

Our server delivery was tested on:

  • Availability
  • Start-up time
  • Non-playing time
  • Rebuffering time
  • Bandwidth
  • Packet loss
  • Packet out of order
  • Non cached download speed
Astream offer Bandwidth On Demand, burstable to 1,000MB per port, we have multiple ports globally and in multiple data centres in different countries. We now provide Storage On Demand via our multi terabyte storage arrays. We also provide internet connectivity via 2 way IP based Satellite uplinks for webcasting from remote locations where a fixed line is not possible.

To support the demands of the next generation of applications requires an infrastructure that can cope with huge growth, coupled with world class streaming infrastructure.

We operate using HP servers with 64bit Dual Core and Quad Core Xeon Chips, storage arrays and redundant power supplies.
