Today a significant amount of YouTube traffic is delivered using the MPEG-DASH format. YouTube has implemented a unique flavor of MPEG-DASH that requires more sophisticated methods of optimization than standard MPEG-DASH. Optimization solutions that do not support MPEG–DASH are unable to positively influence the delivery of video with this format and therefore are less efficient overall.
Flash Networks, by using proprietary methods, provides an advanced MPEG-DASH optimization solution, enabling mobile operators to provide a more consistent, higher quality of experience to its subscribers".
