Hungama Digital Media Entertainment is the largest aggregator, developer and publishers of bobile and Digital Entertainment in India. It has a digital distribution network across 32 countries with over 150 direct networks.

The Problem Statement

Being the largest aggregator in India with an establishment that started 15 years ago explains why Hungama had a complex architecture that had been built over a long period of time. This architecture didn’t focus on the cost of the ingress and midgress traffic, giving Hungama no control over the system, which caused severe escalations.

Services Delivered

The integration took place with Verizon Digital Media providing CDN expertise and Microsoft Azure providing cloud storage. Verizon has a global footprint and specialises in its CDN services. The solution provided was a Dual WAF, DDoS Shield and Rate Limiting. We realised that the combination of VDMS’s CDN and Azure’s storage capabilities competed head on with Akamai and AWS, because of their security and performance standards. DCT in comparison to the previously used solution,n brought down costs by 40% and completely eliminated the ingress and midgress costs, giving Hungama a simplified and integrated architecture. The solution cut Hungama’s costs by generating costs only for Edge traffic.
