What is the Streamboxy Hive eCDN Integration?


Streamboxy offers an integration with HIVE as eCDN Partner. 

Using the Hive eCDN you can Stream to thousands of participants in a corporate network, without putting to much load on firewalls and proxy servers.


Using hive, each viewer does not directly access the streamboxy video stream directly, it is indirectly distributed within the corporate networ (using a peer to peer network or agents).



Prerequisites

  • Hive Subscription - We are happy to support you with that
  • Activation of hive for your tenant through Streamboxy Customer Support


After HIVE is enabled for your tenant you are able to set up sessions of type LiveStream with HIVE eCDN integration.
