Google Plans to Cover the US and the Globe
Cynthia Brumfield of IP Media Monitor has reported that Google is planning “to push massive amounts of voice, video and data content very close to end users”.
Cynthia Brumfield of IP Media Monitor says, “Internet giant Google is reviewing bids received from multiple technology vendors for the development of a national DWDM fiber network, an optical switching fabric that would cover the entire continental U.S., and ultimately the globe. The construction of an advanced optical fiber network would give Google unprecedented flexibility to push massive amounts of voice, video and data content very close to end users”.
Cynthia refers to a number of video related programs Google has launched. First in January, Google launched its video search service which enables customers to find video, such as TV network feeds or movie clips, on the web. Then in April, Google launched a new program, Google Video to allow users to upload their own personal videos. To search for these uploaded videos and play them Google launched, Google Video Player, in July.
According to Cynthia Google is also reportedly in talks with the Hollywood studios, but some technical experts suggest that Hollywood might be more interested in using Google’s network for the delivery of digital films to movie theaters.
