AT&T Private Content Distribution Service (AT&T PCDS) will target companies that need to conduct online training, deliver corporate videos, or hold webcasts for their employees. Introduced today (April 21), it’s a fully managed solution.
AT&T PCDS, says the company, removes the complexity of managing the technical requirements necessary to deliver content across a corporate-wide network. Companies will be able to buy a comprehensive solution that includes the procurement of the necessary equipment, installation, monitoring, trouble ticketing, patching, reporting and day to day operational support of the service.
AT&T believes that companies are increasingly making video and other forms of rich digital media content more central to their businesses and internal processes to optimize communications across employees and suppliers. Typical rich media applications include live and on-demand webcasting, online training, and file and software patch delivery.
With AT&T PCDS, says the company, user organizations will be able to use bandwidth efficiently and can better manage internal business communication demands without upgrading their network resources. They can also track user participation through management tools, among other options.
The new solution is part of AT&T’s Digital Media Solutions portfolio that enables companies to deliver content across their networks to three screens: computer, television, and mobile computing devices, such as iPhone and BlackBerry.
