Agora’s Software Defined Real-Time Network™ Delivers Real-Time Internet Advantages Over Content Delivery Network

In the market today, there are many types of network services available ranging from your traditional residential service to commonly available Content Delivery Network (CDN), Software Defined-Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) and Cloud network service such as those by Cloudfront/AWS. Each of these network services has pros and cons, but when you need the absolute best network service for real-time communication (RTC), which network service should you choose?

Due to its long product history and low cost, CDN has been the solution of choice by many RTC providers. Many are disappointed by the high latency results.

Agora’s Software Defined Real-Time Network (SD-RTN™) is designed from the ground up to deliver the best ultra-low latency, live interactive streaming experience required for today’s and future RTC needs. In this white paper we’ll explore the advantages of SD-RTN™ over typical CDN.
