About the event

This Content Production & Delivery SIG event will explore state of the art for content delivery and provide signposts of where future developments may lie.

Ever more content is being produced both professionally and at an individual level and its accessibility and reliable distribution is imperative for the business models of providers, large and small.

Distributing content is a complex business. Today’s content distribution architecture with its variety of insertion points and end points needs to deliver flawless performance and is challenging to manage. In addition to exploring the growth and operation of infrastructure, this event will consider reliability of delivery plus resilience and security.

This event is taking place at the beautiful Magdalene College, University of Cambridge and will provide delegates with ample opportunities to network with fellow attendees to explore the themes of this event.

Following this event all delegates are invited to join the CW Founders' Dinner drinks reception, which is being held in the same location. The Founders' Dinner is an exclusive invitation-only event and offers business networking opportunities for Founder member organisations within the Cambridge Wireless network.
