How To Add Capacity for Online Multimedia?

Recently saw a survey of about 300 senior IT executives at companies that want to add network capacity to handle added data traffic resulting from the expanded use of online multimedia.

It seems most IT executives would prefer to add capacity by expanding their internal corporate networks. Good news for Cisco.

Of those willing to explore outside options, there is about an even split between expansion via CDNs and via P2P alternatives.

The data shows that preference for P2P skews younger, which may indicate that old stigmas (Napster) may not be a concern for enterprises that are newer to the adoption of online multimedia.
