“Before Edgio, we couldn’t deliver live video to all of our associates simultaneously. Now we can get a live broadcast to more than 10,000 viewers with no problem. We know an event of this scale won’t be an issue.’’
Mike Ziegenbein, VP and Chief Engineer – Primerica
Primerica used a satellite-based communications network to share important information with its 2,000 employees and nearly 118,000 independent contractors across North America. To reduce costs and ensure communications reached remote areas, they moved all video communications online and leveraged a Content Delivery Network (CDN). Video is used regularly for training, recognition and generally company communications. Most recently, Primerica added the ability for managers to create and upload videos from their phones for staff to view on-demand.
Fast internal communication enterprise-wide with its large user base is critical to Primerica. The company relies on Edgio to manage, store and secure live and on-demand video for all live broadcasts, some of which are remote and all stored for on-demand viewing.
