Podcast: What is a media-aware network?

 


powered by ODEO

A media-aware network uses a combination of software and hardware within routers to bring more intelligence to the edges of a network, enhancing the experience of VoIP, videoconferencing, graphics-intensive gaming or other rich-media communications. To learn more about media-aware networks, WhatIs.com's Alex Howard interviewed Cathal Phelan and Keith Morris, the CEO and VP of marketing, respectively, at Ubicom , a manufacturer of specialized processors and router equipment.

When you listen to the podcast, you'll learn the answers to the following questions:

  • What is a media-aware network? How do they work?
  • What does increased intelligence at the application layer mean in real-world terms?
  • What is a communications and media processor (CMP)?
