MCI this week unveiled its Real Network Internet audio and video streaming service for companies wanting to offer video on their Web sites.
So far, video over the Internet has been very limited because of bandwidth constraints. This announcement reduces some of the bottlenecks associated with the backbone network.
MCI is using streaming technology from Progressive Networks, which recently did an equity and licensing deal with Microsoft, to upgrade its Internet backbone to carry the video traffic.
The service can reach a simultaneous audience of 50,000 according to MCI and is likely to be used for entertainment or online training purposes.
