Upcoming Webcast on www.R2.co.nz
This is a premature warning of what could be a webcast of interest to
Network Operators. The organiser will hopefully announce it very soon (was
due out by now <sigh>).
The event is 7pm to 9pm on Thursday 1 September 2005 and will be carried by
R2 using anycast routing. This means that ISPs not peering at APE, WIX or
PNIX will receive the traffic from our US server. If you require assistance
with peering, please contact Andy Linton at CityLink.
The event will be webcast in video at our usual bit rates of 56kbps,
128kbps and 384kbps, and audio at 28kbps and 56kbps. There will be a
separate stream at 2Mbps, for those who would like to experience near
standard definition video. A recent webcast had 25% of viewers watching the
2Mbps stream, so ISPs may experience an increase of traffic. (that was out
of 100 viewers)
Help Desks should also be advised that this event is happening, as there
may be an increase of requests for assistance.
This will be an interactive webcast, as will become apparent, when it
finally gets properly announced. As well as links to client mediaplayers,
the event will use a custom web page with embedded player and the
Thanks for your co-operation.
