StriveCast and LSD Live provide P2P delivery in Argentina for over 100,000 users every week

We are very excited to share a new customer announcement! Buenos Aires-based live streaming company LSD Live chose to team up with StriveCast for their country-wide P2P video and audio delivery. The leading provider for OTT service solutions on the Latin American Market is now implementing StriveCast’s next-gen peer-to-peer technology for a growing number of customers that, among others, include Argentina’s biggest internet radio providers. This partnership is substantially contributing to regional challenges in the Argentinian streaming landscape with a highly scalable CDN.

Providing high-quality video experience for our customers and end-users is crucial for us in order to compete in the strongly growing OTT broadcasting market. The ever-growing demand for live content brings up enormous challenges in scaling our infrastructure. StriveCast has helped us tremendously to tackle these challenges and allows us to run our infrastructure at a predictable cost and with maximum scalability.

Why P2P can change the future of video delivery

Argentina is a perfect example of the benefits of highly scaleable P2P technology in video streaming as an alternative to traditional TV consumption. Due to the high scalability of technical and commercial elements of the relatively small data packages in P2P streaming, the positive trend for peer-to-peer is continuing to accelerate.

Working with a partner like LSD Live is a huge step for us, positioning StriveCast as a company with the ability to support customers all over the world. This is our first step into the South American market and we will now continue to accelerate our growth in the region.

Let the numbers speak for themselves

The partnership of the two streaming technology pioneers shows how the growing need for live video and also audio streaming in countries with little available bandwidth can be successfully met with P2P.

During a normal day, LSD Live broadcasts content to over 30,000 unique users, reaching 3,000 to 5,000 concurrent users.

The average utilization rate (devices actually able to share content via P2P) is almost 75% (so three-quarters of the audience are included in the mesh network). The remaining devices won’t be able to share data due to poor networking, usage of legacy browsers or firewall issues.

Within the mesh network, StriveCast reaches an average savings rate of 85%, leaving only 15% of traffic to be fetched from the actual streaming infrastructure, finally resulting in a total traffic share of 60% (including the devices unable to share content).
