Over the next few months, we will upgrade our RTMP streaming solutions to a new ingest and delivery platform. As part of this upgrade, the Flash Media Server network will be upgraded to FMS 5.0. The purpose of this upgrade is to improve network maintainability and support. There is no impact on other features or performance.
We will notify you in advance of the upgrades, and migrate your streams to the new platform. Primary and backup Entry Points for your streams will be upgraded independently to ensure continued operation. Entry point upgrades will take several hours. Any streams on the entry point will be unable to connect during this time. After the migration is complete, you can resume normal activity.
Akamai is committed to advancing our media streaming capabilities through our Media Delivery Solutions, which leverage HLS, DASH and HDS streaming technologies. If you would like to learn more about the benefits offered through these HTTP-based adaptive bitrate streaming technologies, please contact your representative to get more information about our Media Delivery Solutions portfolio.
