Scaling for Mobile – Feeding Little Data Monsters

How to deliver Gigabytes of data to hundreds and thousands of field devices

At Show Media, we have thousands of devices deployed across in the heart ofNew York and Las Vegas inside all the taxicabs and executive black cars. We routinely deliver huge media files to our device network in the field to power our transportation media network. Our content delivery process allows us to adapt to the harsh mobile environment and continue to scale the device population of our network. We would like to share our experience in file and content delivery over mobile connectivity in this talk.
