Enterprise Last Mile Delivery reduces the load on your internet connection when many viewers watch a broadcast from the same location such as a corporate campus, conference center, or stadium. This feature will improve the viewer experience and help to avoid network issues on-site if a lot of people plan on watching it there.
This is currently an add on feature so please contact your Client Manager or send an email to CM@boxcast.com if you are interested in getting this feature.

Q: Can I turn the Enterprise Last Mile Delivery on or off?
A: Yes, you can turn this feature on or off on an account level.
Q: How does Enterprise Last Mile Delivery work?
A: It works using a technology called peer-to-peer sharing where devices that are on the same internet network share the video between devices rather than always fetching it from the cloud. This helps reduce the strain on a crowded local network where many people are watching in close proximity.
