Our patented PolyNet is a tree-based, peer-to-peer overlay network that reduces bandwidth consumption by nearly 99% and provides premium Quality of Experience.
In traditional unicast servers, bandwidth requirements increase linearly with the number of connected nodes. In our unique tree-based topology, bandwidth requirements per viewer decrease exponentially. Our system finds the optimal peer in the overlay network utilizing AI thereby enhancing throughput and Quality of Experience.
PolyNet leverages WebRTC and WebSocket technology to build a virtual network that can connect to over a billion devices and efficiently stream video to unlimited numbers of concurrent viewers. As a result, content sources are closer to viewers, resulting in exponential cost reduction per viewer as viewership increases.
At the same time, reliability and start times improve. PolyNet compliments your existing CDN solution. With a pure hardware solution, QoE can decrease as viewership increases. PolyNet ameliorates the primary cause of poor viewing quality – router congestion. (See Whitepaper: Super Bowl 50: The Day the Internet Died) As viewership increases, PolyNet works seamlessly with your existing CDN solution to provide full broadcast QoE.
Broadcast Quality Video
Nodes connect to peers not servers so there is less network distance to the end user.
Achieve nearly 99% bandwidth savings compared to unicast deployments. Savings increase as the number of viewers grows.
Increased Service Coverage
Since video is relayed between peers, it is possible to generate a chain of peers to serve viewers unreachable by servers.
At the heart of the System73 virtual broadcast system is a patented invention that employs deep learning techniques to forecast congestion levels. Based on those forecasts, video content routing is optimized along dynamically reconfigured tree structure overlay networks. The result is minimal delay in a scalable fashion that consistently delivers full broadcast Quality of Experience.
