Café with Matthew MacLennan from Bongo on how to overcome network overload

Description

Welcome to the App Performance Café, a podcast focused on mobile app performance. This week we had the pleasure to have as a guest Matthew MacLennan. Matt is the Director of Product Management at Bongo, the leading OTT video service in Bangladesh. Bangladesh's complex networking ecosystem presents quite a few challenges when it comes to delivering a good user experience, in particular for video streaming applications. And when you consider that the vast majority of the users resort to 3G or 4G connections to get the content, the picture gets even more challenging. Matt will guide us through these challenges and how Bongo is tackling them, in particular how one can handle low-end android devices that do not support the latest video codecs. One thing that surprised us is the fact that Bongo resorts to P2P technology to manage the large volume of traffic that stems from main lifestreaming events. And this P2P offloading technique seems to become a trend these days. We had a very insightful conversation with Matt and we hope you do enjoy this episode. Don’t forget to follow us on the usual podcast platforms to get the latest on app performance from industry experts.
