Microsoft has issued a new CDN for businesses ...

Microsoft has announced that it will introduce a new CDN service for businesses, with video streaming improvements taking the major stage.

The news comes after Peer5, a venture capital firm founded by the eCDN in August 2021, and the subsequent integration of the firm''s service into the Teams video conferencing platform.

Microsoft is willing to boast that many businesses utilize Teams as their primary approach for digital and face-to-face communications, although it recognizes that the large bandwidth might result in less-than-ideal results.

According to the company''s blog, Microsoft eCDN is designed to allow users to seamlessly and securely live stream video content from anywhere in the world. (opens in a new tab).

Microsoft hopes that the enhancements to business video conferencing will appeal to a large number of enterprises that have adopted hybrid working habits, with more employees returning to work for at least a portion of the week.

The tech giant is attempting to underscore the increased network reliability that might come from a business opting to use its eCDN, which utilizes a mesh network to self-balance as the number of call participants rises.

It claims that the tool will be quite simple to use owing to the fact that no additional installation is required on devices, and that Peer5''s experience combined with Microsoft Cloud and Office 365 compliance should mean that this is a trusted solution.

The Microsoft eCDN is available for $0.50 per month when combined with an annual subscription, although some users have already expressed dissatisfaction that this is a paid extra, with one comment saying: I''d like to see this as only part of the usual MS Teams license.
